Somatic Art Therapy

My Somatic Art Therapy approach integrates knowledge of the nervous system, the power of creative expression and other methods of psychotherapy.

I see therapy in general as a collaborative process that requires the knowledge of both client and therapist to be successful. You arrive with your insights into your life context and I contribute my skills and observations to help you get closer to the life and relationships you envision.The flow, content and approach of each somatic art therapy session depends on what is most relevant to you.

 

Art therapy focuses on the gifts of the "art process," rather than creating an "art product." Though many people have some initial hesitation about creating art as part of therapy, I find that any discomfort diminishes quickly. Art therapy sessions generally include a period of talking (clarify concerns, goals, ongoing reflections), a time of engaging with the art materials and a therapeutic discussion. The beauty of the creative process is how it facilitates your understand of and ability to overcome blocks that can be harder to access through talk therapy.

 

Since my background as a therapist also includes an extensive career in counselling, I also draw on my training in Somatic Transformation, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Solution Focused Brief therapy, Client Centered Therapy and systems perspectives to help you achieve the change you desire in your life.
