Amalia Brightman



My name is Amalia Brightman.   I am a State Registered Arts Therapist and a full member of the Health & Care Profession Council, HCPC Reg. No. AS00178.    I have worked for over 25 years offering individual, dyadic work and group therapy in a variety of settings including Mainstream and Special Education Schools, Palliative Care, Post Adoption Care (AdoptionPlus), Children Centres and Residential Care.    Since training as a music therapist I have completed an MA in music therapy in special education (City University) and trained as an Integrative Art Psychotherapist, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) at the Institute for Arts and Therapy in Education (IATE).   I am also a fully qualified Holistic Complementary Bodywork Therapist and a full member of CThA.   My approach is to combine latest neuroscience research, focusing on attachment and parent/child relationship, with the art forms and developmental movement.   I consider this approach as a healing path from trauma, creating bonds of attachment and healthy relationships, enabling infants, children, young people and adults achieve emotional  wellbeing and their full potential.
