Tim Anders Verified
Expressive Arts Therapist
Hi, my name is Tim Anders. I have a Master's in Art therapy and many years experience of providing art therapy to boys, teenagers and men.
Since receiving my MA in Art Psychotherapy from the University of Hertfordshire in 2011, I have worked for a variety of charities in the UK including Chai Cancer Care, Norwood and Camp Simcha. Prior to making Aliyah in 2021, I worked in the UK in a school called Darchei Noam, working with boys and young adults aged 11 to 22 with a wide range of mental health issues, emotional, behavioral and physical challenges including aggressive behaviour, porn addiction, autism, ADHD, depression, psychosis, anxiety disorders, selective mutism and bereavement counselling.
I am a psychodynamic art therapist and enable my clients to communicate and explore complex thoughts and feelings which they might not be able to express through words alone.
I see art as a deeper form of communication, enabling people to express themselves in non-verbal, creative, and imaginative ways. This type of communication can convey a level of insight, information, and wisdom that the person cannot deliver otherwise.
Each session is non-directive and non-structured, allowing my clients to lead each session choosing whatever materials or mediums they want to use.
My primary focus is to build a rapport with my clients and create a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship, which enables them to reveal some unconscious content of their psyche.
I fundamentally believe that the answers or solutions to people’s challenges are already within themselves, and it is a therapist duty, to help a client to unravel the information, and then help them to make sense of it.
In addition to running a private practice I am the CEO of a charity I founded in 2016 called Arts Therapies for Children www.artstherapies.org.uk which provides Art therapy to 160 children per week across 32 Jewish Primary Schools in the UK.
