Counselling/Therapy Services

Talking and expressing our feelings through words is often difficult or impossible for individuals going through difficult times. I offer personalized art concepts for each client, using mindfulness-based approaches and a variety of arts modalities (visual arts, clay therapy, play therapy, movement therapy, sound vibration therapy ) to support you on your personal journey, finding balance and creating a happy meaningful life. 

You don’t have to be an artist to express something creatively, you just have to feel safe enough to give it a go. I provide a confidential, non medical and non-judgmental space where I will work with you, at a pace that feels right for you. I believe that every person can heal if they have a safe, loving space and time given to heal from past events. 

I offer individual art therapy sessions from my tree-house art space. 

I accept self referrals as well as those from health professionals, schools, special need educator, early childhood intervention service and community based groups. 

I offer a 20 min free visit to the Art Therapy space where you can see what I do at Kapiti Art Therapy and you can get to know me and ask me questions before booking your sessions.


Counselling/Therapy Approach

Arts therapy uses the creative processes to help you express your feelings and emotions through a non verbal creative process. You can experience color vibration, color meditation, mindfulness techniques and have access to many art modalities like clay, wool, acrylic, earth colors, mixed media and Neurographic. 

I provide a supportive space for you to try and explore new strategy's, guide you gently through different art modality s to teach you to focus on your talents and not your imperfections so you can heal from past events in your life.
