Claire Gribble - Founder

Psychotherapist & Integrative Art Psychotherapist

Professional Information

I am the founder of Surrey Art Therapy and an experienced psychotherapist and integrative art psychotherapist (MA), registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC), the British Association for Counsellors & Psychotherapists (MBACP), the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and I am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS).  


My Approach

My aim is to provide a safe and confidential space for the exploration of thoughts and feelings. I respect that everyone is unique and has their own way of engaging with the therapeutic process. I am committed to working inclusively with individuals of different cultures, genders, sexual orientation and age.  


As an integrative arts therapist, I draw upon a wide range of approaches and resources. It is my hope that through engaging with therapy, you can achieve a better understanding of yourself, feel more fulfilled and make the most of your life. ​


I have worked in various NHS settings supporting people coping with grief, anxiety, depression, addictive behaviours, past trauma, abusive relationships, psychosis, work stresses, and physical illnesses. I also support young people within a specialised NHS funded educational and therapeutic setting.

Psychotherapist and Art Psychotherapist

Professional Information
I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Art Psychotherapist (MA) registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT).

My Approach
I approach therapy through an integrated lens and draw from a range of different frameworks as each person’s therapeutic journey is unique. This diversity ensures that my approach remains dynamic and responsive to your needs. Whether you're navigating difficult life transitions, managing stress and anxiety, or seeking personal growth, I am here to support you by providing a safe and non-judgemental space. If anything is a concern for you, regardless of how small, it matters.

There is the option of using art during sessions as a means of expressing emotions, experiences, memories and dreams. Art can be a powerful tool for transformation, and exploring experiences that might feel challenging to articulate with words alone. Art making can provide insight into unconscious processes, resolve internal conflicts, and develop a deeper understanding of the self.

I work with children, adolescents, adults and older adults, and have worked in different settings within the NHS, charities and independent hospitals. My experience spans across schools, acute mental health inpatient wards, psychiatric intensive care units, forensic low secure units, rehabilitation units and community mental health teams.

I have supported people navigating a variety of challenges, including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, abuse, addiction, identity issues, self-esteem, sexuality and life adjustment e.g. loss, bereavement, change and separation. Depending on circumstances, geography and personal choice, our work can be online and/or in person.
