About Art Therapy

My Creative Arts Therapy Approach…

Thresholds ~  are symbolic for the in-between spaces or the ‘liminal spaces’ that we encounter in ourselves and within our lives… Step into the emergent spaces of art making, with me right by your side, as a compassionate companion to support you to uncover clarity and confidence in your authentic self.  You do not need to have any prior art making experience or any art making skills. I support Women ~ each person I companion has their own preferred art making mediums or appreciates a mix of artistic approaches that I offer. We co create art together and we co create meaning together.

As a Creative Arts Therapist, I offer a ‘holding space’ for your journey. I companion you as you navigate thresholds within yourself, as you explore your thoughts and feelings using the arts as another language ~ especially when you cannot find words for what you may need to express or make sense of. I customise each session to your unique needs, we work together, review and assess how we’re travelling and chart new pathways for you… together. Warmly, Marita Jacobsson

Session fees

I offer a free discovery phone call, for you to explore how I can best support you with Art Therapy. We can set this up via email: please inquire: marita@thresholdsarttherapy.com.au

Concession: $85/hour

Standard: $130/hour

Sessions are flexibly offered between 1 – 2 hours, in-person or online and can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly according to your preferences.

Cancellation fees: 24 hours notice is required for cancellations, or the full fee is charged. The reason for this is that your session time is scheduled and held especially for you, if you cancel without any notice, this prevents me offering my work to others who are seeking it and waiting for it.

Please note: Fees for referrals accepted through agencies/NDIS are different to the fees outlines above, please inquire for more details: marita@thresholdsarttherapy.com.au

NDIS: I am a Registered NDIS Provider and I am able to support people who are NDIS Plan Managed or independently managing their own NDIS plans. I am currently enjoying supporting Women who have chosen Art Therapy to support them as part of their NDIS supports, at my Thresholds Studio in Castlemaine, Victoria and Online. For more information or to discuss this further please email me: marita@thresholdsarttherapy.com.au or call me: 0439 088 235
