Melbourne Counselling and Art Therapy

Healing through your creative mind

We all deserve to live happy lives. Sometimes to find balance we need someone to offer a different perspective. Someone who will listen, understand your circumstances and accept. To tell you it’s ok and you’re doing the best you can. Therapy and counselling services don’t have a one size fits all approach. Some people find it hard to express themselves through words, which is why I offer a range of services in Melbourne including Art Therapy sessions and workshops to help you make long-lasting positive growth in your life.

Who I Can Help

Children & Teens

Big feelings don’t just happen to adults. Therapy for children and teens can help to relieve damaging thoughts, feelings and emotions. As a therapist I pride myself on being soft, kind and thoughtful to the needs of adolescents.


The demands of everyday life take a toll, especially if you’re experiencing difficulties. If you’ve found previous therapists too clinical, my reliable, thoughtful and compassionate approach will make you feel at ease.

Compassionate. Respectful. Inclusive Therapy.

Creative Healing is a welcoming space where you are able to express yourself in a way that is most comfortable for you.

My counselling and art therapy services are available to everyone from children to teens and adults. Bringing a caring, insightful and accepting presence, I’m passionate about empowering women and children to make genuine and long-lasting growth in order to live a fulfilling life.

Different people have different needs in therapy. That’s why I’m dedicated to finding what works best for you. I offer in person one-on-one sessions in my Preston, Melbourne northern suburbs or I am available for online telehealth appointments too.

When you start to heal your mind and soul, you will soon see your world start to heal too.

About Sally Tyrrell

When I’m not off painting rainbows with my kids and getting stuck in glitter and scissors, paint and clay, I’m an experienced and Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and Sensorimotor Art Therapist who works with children, adolescents, women and families. I can help when you experience difficulties managing the demands of day-to-day life. Including the impacts of depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma and relationship problems. 

On a personal level, being creative has changed my life and opened me up to divine insight about myself. It allows me to express my inner world and helps me to integrate it into my outer world. 

Through creative expression I have been able to heal old wounds,  free myself of past worries and opened my heart to truly knowing, understanding and loving myself for who I am. This has allowed me to open my heart and invite new things to come my way. I now share this passion with women and children to help them on their path to positive growth too.  

My all-time favourite quote that inspires me and my work is, “You must give up the life you planned, in order to have the life that is waiting for you…” Joseph Campbell
