As a registered Art Therapist
I facilitate art therapy/ creative activities
within diverse community groups.
Unfortunately, there is still a stigma attached
to the words therapist or therapy
so I prefer to call it Creative Care.
Creativity is an integral part of
our overall wellbeing!
It is both mindful and mindless
As we mindfully engage in creative activities
we tend to mind-less about the worries of our personal worlds.
Science has shown creativity reduces
both stress levels and blood pressure,
It also increases serotonin levels & endorphins,
The feel good hormones.
Creative Care is Self Care...
Creativity takes courage,
Courage is contagious...
Who I work with...
I work with a variety of courageous
individuals + community groups,
who are ready to CREATE
change in their life ...
Most recently these have included:
Multicultural Care, Inner west /South west Sydney
Aged Care facilities, across Sydney
Goodwin Aged Care, ACT
Recovery College (Mental Health) ACT
Newtown Community Centre,
Burwood Community Centre,
Ramsay Northside Clinic, Westmead
Women At Risk, Chatswood
Sisters Circle Facilitator
Workshops for women.
My approach is a little different to others...
Transpersonal: is client centred + strength based.
It unites emotional, spiritual, physical, social,
creative + intellectual needs,
with strategic aspects of achieving wellbeing.
Nature: reduces stress hormones.
It has the ability to awaken, empower, heal + transform.
It gives new perspectives to our own seasons + cycles of life.
Creativity: creative expression is a part of holistic wellbeing.
Using classical client-centred counselling with transformative art processes,
combines the nurturing of nature with the courage of creativity.
