Therapeutic Arts Coaching promotes the healing power of creative expression to work through your life’s challenges, and help you achieve your goals.
Are you overwhelmed by the demands of managing diabetes?
Have found yourself testing your blood glucose levels less, missing important appointments, avoiding treatment, or falling back into old unworkable routines?
You’ve been wondering why others ‘have life all figured out’ and you are struggling to keep it together?
You’re feeling tired and worried about the future?
Feeling unheard and unseen?
Or perhaps, you feel like you just aren’t enough.
If you answered YES to any of theses questions, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I’ve been there and I can help. There is hope! Engaging with therapeutic arts coaching is a perfect step toward healing and growth.

Therapeutic Arts Coaching Appointments
I believe that change and growth is absolutely possible.
Your experience, your process & creations and your insights will guide you towards personal growth and healing.
NO artistic skill is required to participate or benefit from the process of Therapeutic Arts Coaching. All that’s required is an open-mind, open-heart and a willingness to explore through creative expression.
To schedule an appointment with me you need to first contact me via Email or through the form found on the Contact page. Please share why you want to work with me. If I feel I can be of assistance I will reach out to organise a free 15 minute phone call where we can get to know each other.
On the rare occasion I feel I can not assist someone I always respond with suggestions of a better suited practitioner.
Individual sessions run for 90 minutes and I charge $125 (Standard Fee).
I do offer a limited number of Individual Concession sessions throughout the year. These run for 90 minutes and I charge $65 (Concession Fee – requires a Centrelink Pensioner Concession or Health Care Card).
If you require a Concession session please contact me via email, the contact form or phone to discuss appointment availability.
