Expressive Arts Workshop Testimonials

“I recently had the pleasure of attending Tracey’s Creativity Exploration Workshop, and found the experience to be thoroughly enjoyable.  Tracey has a sensitive, fun, and supportive approach to instructing, and I found myself feeling both nurtured and inspired by her presence.  The art projects themselves were varied and gave the opportunity to express different parts of myself through different mediums.  I enjoyed the sensory experiences of all the different approaches, including the music, movement, art tools, sharing with other women, and the baked treats!  I would highly recommend people work with Tracey and know they will feel both inspired and supported by the welcoming environment she provides.  I’m looking forward to the next workshop!”
~Jenny B, New Westminster, BC

Tracey creates a relaxing and healing atmosphere that encourages free exploration of various themes within adaptable exercises. She is very good at holding space for her clients and validating both their emotional journey and creative works. I did not expect to encounter so much synchronicity. I left each session feeling a powerful sense of completion through both the tangible creative work itself, and the insights I was able to gain from that artwork. It’s been so powerful and healing. Outstanding class!

I felt very safe and supported throughout the whole process and would highly recommend her and her services.

Tracey is very creative and this comes through in her workshop. The activities opened up my own inner creativity and vision – it helped to address life’s present concerns and be present, in the moment. It was a lot of fun too!
Thanks Tracey!”

Thank you so much the most for your desire to help us heal, for your thoughtfulness, for your kind caring heart, and for your wonderful gift of creativity.With appreciation.”

“I attended two workshops and found both Tracey and the activities she had us do absolutely compelling. I feel I am a very self-aware person, but what a delight to discover that Tracey found ways to open me up even further. How “nice” to be surprised! She is kind, approachable, smart, and non-judgmental—and oh-so skilled at what she does. I look forward to future “issues” as that would mean I can spend more time with her in the healing shade of her passion for healing and people.”
~Marilyn H., Cloverdale, BC

“Tracey has a lovely, warm, unhurried but focused manner that puts everyone at ease, always offering choices so no one feels pressured to share outside their comfort zone.”
~Anonymous, White Rock, BC

“Tracey is such a warm, nurturing, inviting soul. I felt so comfortable and enjoyed being a part of the group. I would recommend to anyone interested in taking a few hours to look inside, clear your mind and maybe release some parts of you that you hold too tight. Thanks!”
~Anonymous, White Rock, BC

“Tracey’s facilitation skills in our career counselling workshop were excellent. Her ability to impart knowledge in an educational manner as well as keeping the various sessions interesting, highly interactive and very educational was simply amazing. She was very aware of each of the participants needs and catered to each with a very personal and effective approach. She was well prepared for each session, delivered course content clearly, adapted as the need arose, and used inspirational examples. Well organized, professional, pleasant, kind, courteous, respectful and very competent as a counsellor. It is a pleasure and an honor to have worked with Tracey.”
~Gail A., Surrey

“Tracey demonstrated excellent facilitation skills in assisting her clients. She keeps up-to-date information and included humour as a means of lightening up content for her groups. She met individually with clients and provided one-on-one and group counselling. She was able to work with a variety of clients and was well liked by them. She was very patient, considerate and comments in evaluations of her programs included: “being respectful, helpful, understanding and inspiring.” Tracey will go the extra mile for her clients and keep in touch with them to encourage them to follow through on their action plans. She handles pressure very well as our programs are very busy. She is a team player and is quick to take initiative. I have no hesitation in recommending Tracey as she is dedicated and always gives her best.”
~Carolyn R., White Rock
