About Creative Healing

Compassionate. Creative. Comforting.

Choosing a therapist can be one of the hardest decisions on your healing journey. You want to make sure you find the right person to hear your story, whether it’s through words or art. You need to feel comfortable to open up and find a therapist you can trust. And you want your chosen therapist to make you feel safe, comfortable and understood. From my counselling clinic in Preston area Melbourne northern suburbs or through my online telehealth appointments, I provide you with a calm, warm, welcoming and safe environment to express yourself. When you come in for therapy with me, I create sessions tailored to you, your situation and the way you are most comfortable expressing yourself. My kind and thoughtful approach helps you to understand your reactions, accept them and learn how to modify them to experience real growth in your life.

Over many years I’ve studied and practised counselling and different types of therapy.

My qualifications include:

  • Degree in Social Work

    Postgraduate Certificate in Sensorimotor Art Therapy
  • Clayfield therapy
  • Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy with Dan Hughes

It’s my mission to be the kind, supportive guidance you need to feel empowered to work through your mental struggles and create genuine and long-lasting positive growth in your life. Through creative expression, I’ll help you find ways to feel centred, so you can live a joyous life. We’ll also work together on helping you build resilience, so you are better equipped when life throws you a curveball.

About Sarai

Hello there! Nice to meet you! I’m Sarai, the new creative therapist at Creative Healing. I’m so excited about working here and looking forward to working with you! I believe that through art mediums like drawing, paint, sand tray, polymer clay, yarn and moving your body you can process your life experiences and learn skills to cope with challenges. We can use these mediums (and more)health and community settings.

I’m an accredited mental health social work counsellor who has been working creatively with women, young people and the LGBTQIA+ communities for over 15 years. I have experience working with grief and loss, bereavement, non-directive pregnancy options counselling, anxiety and depression and other mental health challenges

I’m passionate about mental wellbeing and creating safe and supportive environments for people to explore their challenges. My goal is to walk beside you through your experience, signposting the way through challenges and providing options for you to explore so you can build your own personal toolkit of strategies. I want you to feel empowered! Using your unique expression, I will support your self determination to find your way to thriving.

When I’m not working you’ll find me enthusiastically making and playing! I love sewing and working with yarn and other textiles, collage, creative writing, printmaking, dancing, singing, walking in nature….

My beliefs about Creative Healing

I believe in the importance of play and creativity to support our healing process. You know the saying, “a picture has a thousand words”? Well, it’s true.

We often find it difficult to talk about what is going on for us, and sometimes we don’t even have the words.

Through my art therapy, you don’t even need words. I will challenge you to make shifts in your life while creating a safe space for you on your healing journey.
