Jodi Battison MA, BA (Hons) HCPC and BAAT Registered

Jodi is a qualified Art Psychotherapist and yoga teacher. She has over 20 years of experience working with mental health and has been working in CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) for the last 11 years. Prior to this Jodi worked within the private education and care system for children with neurodevelopmental disorders and has experience working with adults.

Jodi has a special interest in working with trauma and currently works with children who experience attachment difficulties and complex behavioural and mental health issues as a result of developmental trauma.

It was through working with children who have been exposed to trauma that Jodi decided she wanted to bring the benefits of yoga practice into her therapeutic approach. She decided to take her yoga practice to the next level and completed 200 hours yoga teacher training. Following this Jodi completed a foundation course in Trauma-sensitive yoga (TCTSY) to work specifically with people exposed to trauma through yoga.

Jodi is passionate about the work she does with young people and adults. She wholeheartedly believes that creative expression and humanistic practices (such as yoga) encourage and support a person to connect with them selves, others and their environment to form genuine, meaningful relationships. Seeing people thrive and overcome previous difficulties to reach their full potential is what motivates Jodi to want to reach out and engage with more people as a therapist.
