Tomo Aoshima Williams MA, BA (Hons), BFRP
I am a qualified Art psychotherapist, Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner (BFRP) & also a Nondual Coach.
My practice is supported by over 17 years of experience, working in the field of mental health care with children & adults with different abilities and disabilities, from a wide range of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. My experience of living in 5 different countries (Japan, UK, Spain, Singapore and Hong Kong) has given me so much opportunity to expand my understanding of the world and nurtured connections with people from all walks of life. Alongside my private practice, I have provided Art Psychotherapy in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, mental health clinics, children's homes, schools & natural disaster relief programs.
Designing and providing training for teachers & parents to support children’s emotional well-being has also been my passion, throughout my career. I also enjoy project management work and have been involved with a number of projects, such as setting up & running a school counselling service in an inner-city school in London, organising art retreats for the victims of a natural disaster and producing a therapeutic holiday residence.
My own process of healing & Self-discovery alongside my clients' journeys has led me to extend my study from Psychodynamic Art Psychotherapy to Jungian Psychology, Integral Psychology, the metaphysics of ‘A Course in Miracles’, Zen Buddhism, Nondual teachings and Hatha Yoga.
These learnings and practices led me to look deeper within, and helped me to expand my practice to holistically support my clients' unique personal evolution through different means.
Through my exploration of Nondual teaching, I met my mentor, Dr. Peter Fenner. With his guidance, my recognition of our inherent capacity to liberate ourselves deepened and now I enjoy sharing this wisdom with others.
I enjoy being in nature, making art, singing, playing the piano, ukulele and guitar, as well as spending my time with my family, friends and my clients.
