Gabrielle Ereira-Guyer


M.A. Art Psych. Dip. B.Ed.

HCPC registered Integrative Arts Psychotherapist

UKCP accredited Clinical Psychotherapist

A lifetime of involvement in the arts in various capacities has led Gabrielle to believe that engaging with the arts is a healthy human phenomenon.


For more than 22 years Gabrielle worked in Education with young people with emotional and learning difficulties teaching Art and Drama. This work led her to begin her rigorous psychotherapy training at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education, (IATE) She is founder of a number of groups including a contemporary dance group and a community arts group.


A highly creative individual, with a breadth of experience in the fields of education, mental health and community arts, she works primarily in private practice, has worked psychotherapeutically in a variety of other settings including an NHS psychiatric ward.


Passionate about the power of psychotherapy, expression and the arts to change lives, she works with private clients, charities and business exploring various challenging and painful aspects of life.




Janey Cutting


M.A., Dip., Adv.Dip., B.A. (hons)

HCPC registered Integrative Arts Psychotherapist

UKCP accredited Clinical Psychotherapist

Janey has a particular interest in non-verbal communication and sensory integration.  With a background in music she has collaborated with artists from many disciplines, has studied ‘music in special education’ and has a degree in jazz.


Teaching the arts in Montessori schools led to an investigation of developmental theories, the power of play, intersubjective creativity and the imagination. Becoming an integrative arts psychotherapist has enabled a deeper understanding of the connection between artistic process, the therapeutic relationship and change.


During a life-threatening illness she gained insight to the therapeutic potential of the arts, and has since worked within the field of complex needs, including learning disabilities, addiction and trauma.


Janey's current clinical work draws on contemporary neuroscientific practices and she has found that working on self-regulation helps her clients to live more aware, meaningful and authentic lives.  She is trained in transformative dream work and is a long-term mindfulness practitioner.
