Nuraishah Binte Abdullah (Aishah)

Attuned Space Art Therapy (art therapy for emotional regulation, stress management and work on personal self)

Kia ora!

My name is Aishah and I am an art therapist now based in Christchurch.

I’m passionate about helping adult individuals to gain insights to themselves, regulate their emotions, identify unhelpful patterns of behaviour and learn healthier ways of coping.

The majority of my practice focuses on challenges such as intra and interpersonal relationship issues, facing life stress, recovering from past addiction, difficulties in setting goals and experiencing anxieties.

Coupled with counselling experience in the past, I use art therapy which is psychodynamic and client-centred. My approach is collaborative in nature from looking at issues to setting treatment goals.

Connect with me today so we can have meaningful conversations together and get started on your journey to find hope and healing.

Take care!


Q Do I need to be very good in art before I can seek art therapy service?

- This is a common but understandable myth. Many people have asked this question and the answer is there is no need for you to be very good in art.
- Art therapy taps on the power of creativity and imagination which we believe that everyone has.
- As your art therapist, my role is to provide a safe space for you to explore and support you to make sense of your experiences.

Q Do I really have to make art in every session? What if I just want to talk?

- This is absolutely in your control. Depending on what surfaces in sessions, we may or may not create art.
- Whatever you feel you need to do in that moment, I would like to hold meaningful conversations with you to process that.

Q Will you evaluate and interpret clients' artworks?

- For my practice, I prefer to remain curious and open about what I observe in the art making process and the final work.
- The sense-making is for you as client to take ownership.
- I am here to bear witness, ask meaningful questions and help you gain insights on your experiences.

How to book:
Just drop me an email and I'll be in touch!

Prior to starting, I will plan with you for a 15-20 mins chat to see if we are the right fit for each other. Thereafter, if all is good, we will schedule for our 1st session. Otherwise, I can help you to find an alternative support.

Cancellation policy:
At times, life throws us a curveball and we may not be able to make for appointments. That is understandable.

At the same time, I too hope to honour my preparation for the sessions. As such, any booking cancelled by you for at least 24hrs in advance will not be charged. However, if you cancel less than 24hrs, then I will still have to charge you.
