Caroline Case

Art Psychotherapist/Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist
Private Practice

I am currently working in Private Practice after more than forty years working in either charities or in the statutory services of Education, Social Services and the National Health Service. All my working life has been to work with children and their carers or families. I started writing in the 1980's with a group of supportive friends and colleagues. At that time we were working to understand and define practice and process in Art Therapy which was a new profession. It was an exciting time.

Biography

I originally worked as an art teacher before training in art therapy. I was drawn to art therapy because of the way that individual children would draw or paint something completely different from what they were meant to be doing. They had to paint to express themselves, something I recognise in my own current work of making woodcuts. I worked in ordinary and special schools before becoming involved in art therapy training at the then St. Albans Art College. I moved to Scotland where I trained as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist working in Edinburgh and Stirling with children and families. I finally came to Bristol where I worked in the National Health Service before going into private practice.
