ART THERAPIST

Art therapy is a creative, gentle and healing therapeutic technique. It uses creative expression in various forms to explore feelings, release emotions and stress, develop self awareness and enhance the connection between body and mind. 

Our art therapist has a Masters in Therapeutic Arts Practice and is trained to work with mental health issues, grief and loss, support life transitions, build confidence and develop insight – social and emotional.  

Jess facilitates art making using a phenomenological framework (your art is not interpreted or judged) with an emphasis on exploring meaning and ways of knowing.  Presenting and emerging issues are explored utilising a range of materials include clay, drawing, painting, collage, installation, movement, and sound. Psychotherapeutic techniques include supportive counselling (life stress, mental health, disability), grief counselling (bereavement, terminal illness, family breakdown, divorce), trauma processing, and mindfulness. It offers another pathway to healing and wellbeing that can use verbal expression in the process but is multifaceted and not as reliant on verbal language.  

 It is a judgement-free and ability-free space in which to use creative arts to express, release and explore the self, heart, body and mind.
