Embark on a transformative path with personalised Art Therapy sessions.

Through the power of art, I provide a unique therapeutic experience that allows you to express, understand, and overcome emotional hurdles in a safe, nurturing environment.
Art Therapy sessions offer a profound journey into self-exploration and healing. My approach combines therapeutic techniques with the freedom and joy of artistic expression, creating a space where words and artistic skill are not necessary to communicate your inner world. Supported by a professional art therapist, each session is a step towards self-discovery and emotional well-being.

What to expect in my Art Therapy sessions.

Setting the Foundation

Start your healing journey with an intake and consent form, essential for a safe, confidential space. This helps me understand your goals and expectations. Your information will be stored securely.

During our initial consult, we'll focus on building trust and establishing a strong, therapeutic relationship.

Art Therapy Sessions

Our sessions together will be client led, allowing you to steer the direction of each session. I'm here to provide a more directive approach should you feel stuck.

In general, however, you maintain control over the flow and focus of each session, ensuring it aligns with your needs and goals.

The Healing Process

Art therapy focuses on the present moment. Whatever is alive for you here and now is what we work with.

It is best to approach each session with an open mind, as surprising or even unwelcome insights may emerge, though it's fine if they don't.

Your thoughts and emotions often continue to evolve even after a session ends.

A Healing Haven

Nestled in the serene farmland of Mt Duneed on the Surf Coast of Victoria, my art therapy practice offers a uniquely healing environment. 

Surrounded by the natural beauty and tranquility of the countryside, this setting provides a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The sprawling farmland, with its open skies and gentle landscapes, invites a sense of calm and connectedness to nature. This connection is known to foster relaxation and reduce stress, making it an ideal backdrop for therapeutic art-making. 

The quiet and private setting allows for uninterrupted self-exploration and creativity, while the natural surroundings inspire artistic expression. This harmonious blend of art therapy in a pastoral environment offers a holistic approach to healing, catering to both the emotional and environmental needs of clients. At Safe Space, women can find peace, rejuvenation, and a deeper connection with themselves.
