Irene Champernowne

"Everyone was to have the opportunity of experiencing personally, the integrating power of creativeness."

Irene Champernowne (1901-1976) was a leading psychotherapist in the UK, who promoted the integrating power of creativeness to improve mental health and whose vision was to make psychotherapy available to all. 

Influenced by Carl Jung’s psychoanalytic theories, Champernowne pioneered art therapy as a source of treatment which is still used in today’s therapeutic practices.  

The exhibition showcases some of Champernowne’s archive, donated by The Champernowne Trust, a charity who continue holding events and workshops, influenced by the powerful creative legacy which Champernowne has left.
