My philosophy with regards to counselling and expressive arts is based upon a strength-based approach, influenced by appreciative curiosity, an orientation focused on processes, and solution focused therapy. My role as a therapist is to provide a gentle presence, supportive listening and flexibility so you can find peace in letting go and in opening the heart.
Counselling and expressive arts is a way of facilitating growth, healing, learning and change in yourself. My guiding belief and principle is that we each have unique gifts and challenges that we bring to the table. I recognize that those gifts and resources is what you makes you special, instead of focusing on labels, categories or weaknesses. We avoid making judgements of good vs bad, right vs wrong and instead explore what art does to us instead of making interpretations of meaning or rationales of creation.
