Art Therapy Melbourne

Art therapy is one of the various modalities that offer an alternative to talking therapy, to expand your capacity to communicate and explore your thoughts and emotions. Symbols and metaphors expressed through art go beyond what can be described when participating in talking therapies. Art therapy is a way to express and understand this hidden knowledge to facilitate therapeutic work.

Using art to explore and process thoughts and emotions.

But I am not Artistic, Can Art Therapy Work for Me?

You do not need to be artistic to gain the benefits of art therapy!


While many art therapists come to the work by first being artists, then becoming therapists, my practice has evolved from psychotherapy training and extensive work in group therapy programs; further enhanced by specific training in the field.


My clients can feel ease, liberate their inner child and embrace the creative process without feeling self-conscious.
