An art psychotherapist and adult Third Culture Kid (TCK), Joshua has a diverse, cross-cultural experience working with people using the creative arts, including individuals with special needs.
Trained in MA Art Therapy at the University of Derby in the United Kingdom, Joshua has served in community mental health settings across England’s National Health Service (NHS), providing art psychotherapy for children, teenagers and adults with a wide range of backgrounds, including ASD, ADHD, OCD, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma, disrupted attachment patterns, eating disorders and psychosis.
As a former designer and special needs art teacher who has experienced moving between countries from a young age, Joshua has seen first-hand how art has the powerful ability to give others a voice and a place in their own journeys of discovery. He is particularly passionate about exploring the cross-cultural experience and making art accessible to all ages and abilities, and is a two-time TEDx speaker and multi-disciplinary artist.
Joshua practices a person-centred approach that informs his Psychodynamic Therapy particularly with the Expressive Arts, Attachment and Polyvagal Theories. His clinical interests include working with those with trauma, neurodiversity and developmental disorders, and people undergoing transition.
He is a professional member of the Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA) and the Art Therapists Association of Singapore (ATAS). Joshua is also an associate overseas member of the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT), and a registered art therapist with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), the UK’s main healthcare regulatory body.
