Creating Art in Session
A Mini Creative Workshop - If this interests you, you can envision each therapy session almost like a one hour guided expressive arts workshop where we will intuitively create art together. During session time, I will facilitate short expressive arts exercises that will support you to tap into your intuitive mind.
A Spontaneous Visual Dialogue - You will not be creating alone! I typically create art alongside you, to deepen into my own intuition, and to spontaneously and visually dialogue with you. Creating together deepens the level of honesty, insight and it intensifies the session into a living breathing visual conversation.
Expressive Arts Exercises: Each session, spontaneously created in the moment might include short collage, poetry, storytelling, painting or drawing exercises. You can let me know what feels best for you, but truly, all of the creative invitations that I offer do not require prior art or writing experience.
Art and Writing Materials: Please bring a pen, journal, sketchbook or paper. Also bring 3 magazines, a glue stick, scissors, oil pastels, watercolour paints, brushes and water.
Typically in session time, we will explore your higher visions for your life, and what is holding you back from actualizing them.
All art sessions must be done on Skype or Face Time.
