Individual sessions for adults
As an arts based therapist I am somatically informed and use both person-centred talk therapy and arts based approaches to support healing and well being. I work collaboratively with you as together we uncover your resources for self discovery, care and resilience. It can be a time of reflection, of expressing and sharing what is happening in your current experience, and a place where you can find and grow with your ‘living edge’, deepening and expanding into a greater experience of well being.
“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door.
If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it,
that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estes, PhD
A session may begin with sharing and reflecting. Some days we may stay here in our therapeutic relationship. Some days we start from talk and then move mindfully into embodiment and into the expressive arts, where I will accompany you as we explore with materials, narrative, poetry, movement, music and imagination in a compassionate and non-judgemental process.
The arts have much to offer to expand our experience beyond what can be said with words, beyond familiar stories of ourselves and the world. In this space we find new perspectives. We find an invitation to embark into the unknown and here, we find the light and breadth and wisdom of our innate capacity to imagine and to play.
*It is important to note that no previous experience with, or knowledge of, the arts is needed.
I offer a free consultation where we can meet and explore possibilities of beginning. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
