As an art therapist I accompany a client on their inner journey. Together we explore the use of art materials and the artistic process. Each person is unique, and each approach tailor made.

Benefits include:
? helping with self-confidence and a sense of purpose
? promoting relaxation
? encouraging artmaking as a healthy hobby and outlet for emotions

My overall approach is one of compassion focussed therapy. I believe we need to meet trauma responses, difficult and problematic behaviours and emotions with acceptance and kindness. I offer art therapy support for the 12-step programme and dialectical behaviour therapy.
I trained as a Community Art Counsellor at Lefika La Phodiso in 2011. I have worked at a psychiatric recovery centre since 2013, have many years of experience working at an addiction recovery centre and in a children’s home. I am part of the first cohort of art therapists to be trained locally, at the University of Johannesburg at a master’s level.
