Creative Arts Therapist -
Words are powerful, but sometimes get in the way…
I help adults and kids connect with their creative selves to make real, positive change.
The creative arts (including music, sound, movement, drawing) offer amazing tools that can help you express what maybe has never been given a voice before, or felt too big, too complex, – or too shameful – to say in words. You can find sounds, images, or movements that match feelings – and hold them, and hold yourself there.
In this creative space our focus is to tell your story. When we listen to what’s there, we hear your stories. They are the stories of your deep experience, beyond words. The creative tools help us to tell and listen to those stories and appreciate them as something with complexity, meaning and beauty that help inform us, help us to grieve, confront discomforts and find its place in your life. When you start to extract this story you can see and share it in a new way. When you embody it you become a character, active in your own story. Your story becomes a living and breathing experience rather than a stuck way of being.
