Art Therapy Inner Child Workshop

This weekend, my colleagues and I are running an Inner Child workshop for women.  I’m really excited about it!  There are still a couple of places available if you are interested in coming along to this gentle and creative day in the hills.  Due to the fact that Joyce and I are supporting an Art Therapy Placement (Dianne Smith, who I’ve seen in action many times over the past few months and she’s a fantastic therapist and group facilitator), the fee for this one day workshop in only $60!

Facilitators: Dianne Smith (Transpersonal Art Therapy student  & Educator) , Joyce de Haas (Counsellor, Facilitator) and Toni Jackson (Counsellor & Psychotherapist).
Sunday 12th July 2015 10am-4pm
at Mundaring Wellness Centre

$60* including materials
Art therapy techniques will be used to explore possibilities in a non-threatening, enjoyable and supportive environment. Creative media (such as paint, pastels, texta, collage, clay, modeling, sandplay, movement) enable the unconscious to be accessed to gain personal insights without having to discuss at length one’s situation.

You do not have to be an artist (or have even held a pencil)—each image or piece is simply a means for each person to gain understanding of her own situation and to move forward. Art Therapy is a process used for healing as well as making decisions and/or establishing new directions.

BOOKINGS: 0413 034 348
*special rates as these workshops are part of a student placement as MWC.
