Poorna earned her MA in Art Therapy from the University of Hertfordshire and carries the designation of a Registered Therapist with the Health Care and Professional Council, UK. Poorna has experience working with diverse groups of clients, from older adults, both with and without dementia, young adults facing issues like substance misuse, personality disorders, self-harm, and eating disorders, to children dealing with mental health challenges such as autism and ADHD. Poorna employs a therapeutic approach that combines psychodynamic principles with offering a space to incorporate artistic mediums like sketching, drawing and colouring at the client’s pace, all the while emphasising the use of mindfulness-based tools. This approach includes a sensitive exploration of images to promote healing and self-discovery through creative expression and exploration of one’s emotions and experiences.
