Creativity in all its forms is a healing and transformational tool for all

“Mother Earth” by Masha

In my therapy practice I use Therapeutic Art, Sandplay Therapy, Sound Healing, Metaphor work and other forms of creativity, incorporating these as appropriate into the client sessions. There is no requirement to be “artistic” – as children we are all creative and imaginative, but many of us are discouraged from expressing our creativity by the school system and sometimes by the family. You can re-discover and re-ignite your creativity at any age or stage of your life.

Creative Approaches for Professionals

“Waterfalls” by Masha


I teach courses for health and care professionals on Integrative Sandplay, Metaphors of Movement, and other workshops incorporating creative approaches into their work. These latter could include the essentials of using arts / crafts, music and sound, creative writing and sandplay.
