Valerie Cortese

I am an Art Therapeutic Practitioner having thirty year’s experience of working with children, young people and families. I offer a confidential space to explore thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Through positive use of verbal and non-verbal communication and creative resources, i.e.  art, clay, games, and sandplay I believe we can make sense of our experiences.

I work from a trauma informed model based on safety and stabilisation covering issues such as bereavement, loss, self-confidence, attachment, anger, trauma, and self-identify.
