Hello, my name is Annie. I am the Community Psychotherapist at Mount Lodge.
I am a trained Art Psychotherapist and EMDR Practitioner and have previous experience of working with adults and children in a variety of settings including criminal justice systems, inpatient settings, outpatient services, and educational settings such as schools.
As an Art Psychotherapist I am passionate about embodied trauma, with much of my work focusing on the bridging between the mind and body using art materials, sensory play, and mindful exercises. I provide 1:1 and group Art Psychotherapy to residents at Mount Lodge, along with facilitating reflective groups for the community and staffing team whilst supporting engagement in the therapeutic program.
