Jane Knott

Therapeutic Work

I offer one to one sessions with adults and children (CRB checked), and I have worked with emotional, behavioural, and physical health issues and special needs clients, and those in palliative care.

Following on from our meeting and conversation sessions facilitate an exploration of oneself, an issue, a life changing experience, time of ill health and/or distress and recovery through the medium of art-work and continued conversation. Colour, form, light and darkness assist exploration which is maybe inspired by a chosen and agreed initial theme, or starting point. I aspire to provide an inspiring, safe and nourishing environment and process where new insights and pathways emerge, whilst acknowledging too the potential value of past experiences.

From time to time I offer group painting workshops and have taught in particular egg-tempera painting and gilding for the contemplation of chosen subjects over longer phases of time. 

Single session: 60 mins – £35-£45
Group session: 90 mins-3 hours – £15-£35

Elizabeth Körber

Therapeutic Work

Change in health and long standing conditions bring about a sense of loss. They transform our life and affect ourselves and those around us. It can be very isolating and challenging to adapt. I offer emotional support in a confidential space in which we explore creative ways that help with finding resources and orientation.

My main background is working with people affected by chronic and progressive illness, neuro disabilities, learning difficulties and challenging behaviour for about thirty years. I work in private pratice and offer home visits as well, mainly for individual sessions. For people who find it difficult to afford sessions I offer reduced rates.

I also provide art therapy supervision, both for students and fully qualified therapists (my supervision training optioned at the art therapy centre London). I have developed a special interest in the school health professions and end of life support.

Single session: 60 mins – £35-£45
Supervision: 60 min £35-£45, I offer either face to face or Skype/ screen supervision.
