Somatic Art Therapy
There are many reasons why people may seek out arts therapy. Perhaps you are going through a challenging period of transition in life; a relationship breakup, grieving the loss of a loved one. You may be feeling stressed, anxious, lonely, depressed or overwhelmed with life. You might just be feeling stuck and lack direction/ motivation and are searching to find a deeper meaning or purpose.
Transpersonal Art Therapy is an inclusive and multi-faceted approach to well-being that integrates expressive arts and creativity (writing, painting, drawing, poetry, music, drama and movement) as a tool to help express that which words cannot and to help give tangible form and expression to that which may often be an intangible experience. Creativity is used as a tool to access, draw out and explore deeper layers of the human psyche, to gain personal insights and to support and facilitate transformation and change. Anybody can try art therapy. The focus is not on artistic ability or the end product but on the journey and insights gained from the experience.
In contrast to many conventional forms of counselling or therapy which may involve an element of analysis, diagnosis or advice giving, the transpersonal approach recognizes the power and potential of you as an individual for self-development, self-healing and self-realization. I believe that YOU posses your OWN inner medicine and wisdom for transformation within you. Nobody is a bigger expert on your life and your experience, than YOU. My intention as a therapist is to hold a safe and confidential space of unconditional support so you can surface the issues and concerns that are relevant and important to you.
I will accompany and guide you on a healing journey of exploration which allows you to access your own inner wisdom, resources, knowledge and potential for growth and wellbeing.
