Art Therapy

Art therapy for relaxation, self reflection and creative joy

I offer one-on-one art therapy sessions to work through issues that might be on your mind, to process feelings, help you gain clarity and enable you to connect with your wise creative self. I also run workshops and can custom build sessions for workplaces, organisations or groups of friends and colleagues.

I see clients at a lovely space in the inner west – I have a room in a fresh, spacious, calm wellness centre, close to public transport (and close to great cafes and parks if you need some time afterward a session to journal or sit and think). I have appointments available during working hours, but also have sessions available evenings and weekends on request.

Sessions cost $90 and can be in person or by Skype (a modest materials list will be provided before we have our first session if we are meeting by Skype).

If you would like to work together over a number of sessions, and prefer to pay in advance you can purchase a set of 4 sessions and receive a discount.The price is $320 AUD for 4 x 1 hour sessions plus 15 minute initial set up discussion to discuss expectations, logistics and other set up steps.

My approach to art therapy is a transpersonal one – this focuses on helping the client make meaning of their situation, and is respectful of their world view and beliefs. In this style of art therapy we do not seek to ‘diagnose’ but instead provide a safe space for you to explore your own thoughts, … Continue reading My approach
