NDIS Registered Art Therapist Melbourne

If you’re struggling with an intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability that impacts your life or the life of a loved one, the world can sometimes feel like it’s full of roadblocks. Holding you back from enjoying a happy and fulfilled life. And that can lead to feelings of helplessness, frustration and loss of self-belief.

Sometimes to find balance we need someone to offer a different perspective to our challenges. Someone who will listen, understand your circumstances and provide compassionate support. Someone to tell you it’s ok and give you insights, strategies and coping techniques.

As an NDIS provider I offer NDIS-funded counselling and art therapy services to help you to improve your wellbeing. I bring a caring, insightful and accepting presence and I’m passionate about empowering women and children to make genuine and long-lasting growth in order to live a fulfilling life.

Art Therapy NDIS Melbourne

Some people find it difficult to express themselves through words. I believe creativity is the language of the soul and can help you to relax, focus and connect. Art therapy can help you to express your thoughts and feelings without words.

Working with an Art Therapist can be a transformative experience for people living with a disability or mental health disorders. Sometimes you can go over and over what’s happened in your head or how you feel until you get to a point where you’re not getting anywhere. It’s in times like these that expressing your emotions verbally doesn’t always work.

You don’t need any art experience to take part. The purpose of art therapy is to provide a safe and supportive space to explore and engage in the creative process.

Creating art can help you to heal because it allows you to express yourself, focusing on your emotions and relaxes you. I also offer art therapy in a group setting which helps you to connect with other people.

Some of the areas an NDIS art therapist can help with may include:

  • Working to combat symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Give you the techniques to help you cope with life’s challenges
  • Coaching specific life events or life goals
  • Help you cope with mental health disorders and build coping mechanisms
  • Build self-confidence and independence
  • Alleviate symptoms of negativity and let you work through the feelings in a safe environment
  • Help you to work on your relationships, both social and family-based
