About me.

My Creative Counselling draws from my life working in visual art and media, my experience in Transpersonal Art Therapy, my Masters of Fine Arts research, now melded with counselling.
In conjunction with counselling therapies, creativity a powerful pathway for healing to occur .

I have had a life long fascination and engagement with creativity and its healing affects. Personally creativity has helped me work through and deepen from the "curve balls" of what life has thrown at me. 

Helping people creatively work through their psychological blocks to discover and develop their strength and potential, gives me great satisfaction.

In my early career I've been an animator and animation director of my own projects and commissioned work. I've researched and written for film, been a graphic designer and TAFE teacher in visual art and media subjects. Themes I explored in my own media projects were often psychological and/or about women. I have long been fascinated by the psyche, and how our interior life impacts all levels of our exterior lives, society, culture and how we navigate into the future.

In this work together you make the breakthroughs, while I help facilitate and guide your healing process.

​In my Masters of Fine Arts I researched the work of a doctor who'd integrated his  immunology and psychotherapy practice and how physical conditions can at times be healed through talking therapy. The written thesis was accompanied by traditional and digital media; moving and still imagery. Traditional media elements were oil paintings on canvas. Moving image work included a documentary short which visually elaborated on an interview I conducted with an ex patient of the doctor's.
