Most of the images on this site are from the copyright-free photography website, Unsplash, to whom huge thanks. This is the source of all pictures with Ian Pittaway Therapy branding, which include my name and contact details. To trace the origin of an unbranded photograph, right click and select “Save image as”, and you will usually see the name of the photographer and Unsplash credited as the file name.

Where this is not the case, origin is always credited where known. If any images on this site are uncredited and you are aware of attribution, please be in touch so I can give credit.

One image in this ‘awaiting credit’ category is one of the photographs which randomly appear as the header, also shown above. This is a sculpture called Love, by Ukrainian artist Alexander Milov, displayed at the Burning Man Festival 2015. A man and woman sit in emotional distress with their backs to each other, but still the child in each of them reaches out for contact. I find the sculpture striking and beautiful, and it expresses for me the desire of the child in all of us to make contact and find resolution, even if hidden behind defensive layers. Finding and understanding the experience of the child in the adult, and the long-term effects of early experiences, is often the key task of psychotherapy.
