A holistic approach to psychological treatment and healthcare

Instrumental to the movement of a healing heart

I am a registered health practitioner who provides a holistic healthcare approach to assist my clients to resolve those day-to-day issues that can reduce wellness.

My Approach

A creative mindful approach for life and wellness is to locate and manifest what it is that ‘you really need and want to have in your life’. This is inclusive of psychological education.

There is at least two parts for a therapeutic process of change. Part one is the beginning place to identify what it is that you need, and the second part is about what you can do to get to where you would like to be. This is a person-centred treatment process. The conversational and experiential content of the counselling process will assist the integration of new knowledge.

My approach integrates the Arts-in-Psychotherapy, MindBody and other psychological counselling for an integrative outcome for wellbeing.


Supervision Services

Clinical supervision is available for practitioners of a Clinical Arts Therapy who have an interest in the visual and intermodal processes of the creative arts therapies.

Other supervision is available for healthcare practitioners who are developing a holistic creative and psychological approach in their practice.
