Sessions are available for Women: no referral is required. I provide a safe, confidential ‘holding space’ for Women who have experienced trauma, mental health challenges and also Women who need support with parenting, relationships at home/work and with their own wellbeing. I companion whomever I am working with, by offering compassion and presence and customise my nourishing work to Women’s needs and preferences for therapy, using creative processes and a wide array of art materials.
Art Therapy is a form of Counselling or Psychotherapy, that is trauma-informed, emergent, co creative and a collaborative approach. ‘Internal Family Systems’, ‘Narrative Therapy’, ‘Mindful Self-Compassion’ approaches, as well as inner child work are all drawn upon as guiding and supportive processes in my work.
Focus is on a shared ‘creative inquiry’ using various arts mediums that may include: clay, paint, drawing, collage, movement, natural objects, textiles, doll making, writing & poetry, images, sculpture, photography, symbols or rituals ~ rather than creating a polished art piece. No prior art experience or expertise is required.
I am a Registered NDIS Provider and can support people with plan managed or self managed NDIS funding packages.
I offer sessions at my ‘Thresholds Studio’ in Castlemaine, Victoria and Online session are also available.
