WHY ART THERAPY?

When done in a safe and trusting space, art-making leads to healing and new ways of thinking as it connects people to their own limiting beliefs, narratives, self-critic, past experiences and other habits and patterns that might no longer be serving them anymore. Art making promotes reflection and self awareness. With the support of a professional and compassionate art therapist, the art-making process brings the unconscious to a more conscious level.

MY THERAPEUTIC APPROACH

My therapeutic approach is psychodynamic and Jungian based and integrates mindfulness into the art-making process. I passionately believe that art-making and creativity can be an act of self-care and a way of nurturing ourselves and getting to know ourselves. Creativity lives within us, we simply need to explore ways to access it. Within art therapy, there is no right or wrong art - the space is all about telling your unique story through creative self expression.

SESSION STRUCTURE

Sessions are conducted confidentially in a safe and nurturing environment. We start wherever you are and find the right pace which you need the most. The first half of the session will consist of art making, followed by an exploration of the process in the second half of the session. When working online together, I will support you in developing a creative space in your own home. In in-person sessions, all art materials will be provided.

DO I HAVE TO BE AN ARTIST?

Art therapy is not about mastering or improving art skills or technique. No art background or experience is required for individuals to attend art therapy. All that ones needs is curiosity, openness to creativity and a desire for change. If you feel drawn to exploring if art therapy could be a good support fo you, book a FREE 30-minute consultation call to explore how I can support you. I look forward to connecting with you!

I now understand the power of creativity. I  never knew art making could lead to so much growth and healing. I feel so connected with my forgotten creative side - thank you for your support!

Client - Art therapy 

Attending the workshop has really helped me focus on making time for myself again. So after work i try to switch off and do something relaxing for myself.
