Creatively make meaning
Express yourself through art and tap into your imagination to gain clarity and strength as an individual and or as a couple.
With all of metropolitan Victorian going back into lockdown, we will have to go back to zoom sessions until further notice.
Arts as therapy....
From the start of civilisation, we have used the ‘Arts’ for expression, teaching and meaning making.
Thus, the ‘Arts’ have a primal way to unlock our expression and make meaning through using both our right and left hemispheres of the brain.
Using the ‘Arts’ is like an ‘access point’ for us to connect with our unconscious parts to help translate and heal in a more holistic and integrative way.
So why not...
Let your creativity guide you and connect you with your emotions, to make it easier to name and describe how you feel and thus make meaning.
- Let your smudge on the page talk.
- Tap into your images in your mind.
- Hear the sounds that depict how you feel and move.
- Choose a figurine which resonates with your emotions.

Deciding on a supervisor or therapist, I want to feel comfortable to be uncensored in my vulnerability and to cry my heart out if I need too. I would want to feel safe to inquire into my inner world and be held with another skilful and compassionate individual.
