Christine Rolph is a fully qualified and registered Art Psychotherapist. Since qualifying in 2009, her work has primarily been with adolescents and adults both individually and in groups. In addition to her private practice at Silk House Therapy Practice, Christine continues her work as Lead Core Creative Psychotherapist within a forensic therapeutic community.
Christine's approach to Art Psychotherapy, although integrative, is psychodynamic and informed by her interest in attachment theories and links between neuroscience and art psychotherapy. As a creative psychotherapist she offers a safe and secure environment that supports the exploration of feelings through image making. Regardless of artistic skill or experience, it's a way of working that often leads to a much deeper understanding of our sense of self, and the connections we make to our experiences.
Her work with adults has covered a wide range of issues; self-harm, clinical depression, bereavement and loss, domestic violence, childhood sexual abuse, rape, relationship difficulties, psychosis and schizophrenia, confidence building and self esteem.
Having completed BAAT Supervision training, she is in the process of completing a further Diploma in Creative Supervision with the London School of Psychodrama (August 2015). Christine is also a member of the Art Therapy Practice Research Network and the Forensic Arts Therapies Advisory Group.
