Aisling is an HCPC registered art psychotherapist; working with people of all ages across a broad range of issues including mood disorders, eating disorders, self-harm, bereavement, abuse, burnout, addictions, domestic violence and dementia. For the last 10 years, she has specialised working with young people and adults who are affected by trauma and experiencing mental distress.

Using an approach underpinned by psychodynamic and group analytic methodologies, Aisling offers both group and individual therapy. Art psychotherapy sessions help people to communicate and contain thoughts and feelings, too difficult to express with words alone. Sometimes there are no words. With group work, Aisling aims to help people feel less isolated and develop healthier relationships. She is particularly interested in non-verbal expression and how visceral processes can be used to provide an accessible way to make sense of complex experiences.
