He has continued to have a special interest in working with children from such complex and vulnerable family backgrounds. His key interest of work is in trauma, in particular, developmental trauma and attachment.
Adam offers individual and group art therapy to help the client through a process of change, healing and to be able to better understand their internal world to help them better manage and enjoy their external world experience, including relationships with others.
Adam also works directly with children and their parent/carer together using art-based activities in Dyadic Art Therapy sessions. This therapy is very effective to help the child and their parent/carer who are experiencing particular difficulties in understanding, communicating and enjoying each other as the process works on strengthening the dyad’s emotional bond. As well as dyadic art therapy, Adam is trained in EMDR and uses this approach to work individually with children and adolescents who have experienced trauma, and also dyadically with children and their parents.
Adam lives with his family and various animals in Worthing. He enjoys cooking, cycling and continues to find time to practise his own art making process and from time to time he exhibits his work.
