Isa L. Levy, MA (UKCP)

I am an accredited Arts Psychotherapist. I have been in practice for 15 years and provide individual personal or online psychotherapy sessions for adults to help overcome personal challenges. Sessions can include the use of the arts as a means of expression, or not, if preferable. "Find a more authentic path, a truer identity, with the aim of personal growth and development.” As an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist I draw on a variety of psychological theories to support my therapeutic practice and approach each client as an individual, tailoring my practice to each client's specific needs. For someone considering psychotherapy it can seem a daunting process. I hope to create a non-judgmental and supportive environment in which a trusting relationship can develop. This can facilitate new ways to explore problematic events and unproductive behavioural patterns from the past, enabling change, movement and growth.

Work Experience

Isa Levy's experience is broad, and includes the area of mental health where she was employed for 11 years by the national charity, MIND, where she worked both as a Crisis Counsellor and also as an Arts Psychotherapist.

She has worked with Cast, an organisation that supported women ex-offenders to re-enter the world where she facilitated workshops on Self-Esteem and Depression through Art.

Additionally, she has a background with performing arts and is also a visual artist and author. Details of her Memoir Conversations with a Blank Canvas can be found on this website.

Here are a few reasons why you might consider psychotherapy:

  • Not being true to yourself

  • Low-self esteem

  • Lack of confidence

  • Relationship and Family difficulties

  • Identity problems

  • Issues around Sexuality

  • Depression / Anxiety / Panic Attacks

  • Life Transitions

  • Physical and Sexual Abuse

  • Emotional Neglect

  • Childhood Trauma

Why Use the Arts in psychotherapy?

Sometimes it can be difficult to express feelings in words and the arts can be invaluable in enabling this process. There is no requirement to be artistic to benefit from this way of working therapeutically and if preferred by the client we can work without the arts. In this case we will find ways together to develop a trusting relationship in which the past can be investigated more fully in a safe environment.

Anyone interested in Arts Psychotherapy can benefit from the experience. Engaging with creativity, imagination and symbol can be a welcome relief from the world of logicality and control; the invitation to explore both aspects of structured thinking alongside spontaneous expression can be empowering.
