Transpersonal Art Therapy includes elements of meditation and delves into more than the personality of the self and includes all aspects that are closely connected. This includes the thinking mind, the physical body, the emotional heart and the spiritual nature.
Helen believes when we are not feeling 'well' we have disconnected from a part of ourself and what we are truly about. Art therapy sessions enable us to rebuild and reconnect our mind and body. It enhances relationships with both one self and others, and gives meaning and purpose to every day life. Helen uses Art therapy to guide the mind to alternative ways of thinking; ultimately enabling the individual to discover ways to enrich life and live in a more peaceful manner.
Expressing emotion through art mediums is insightful and empowering. Helen knows this powerful, healing and style of client centred counselling and therapy is one to be explored and experienced.
Art Therapy sessions can enhance your way of living as you learn to connect with your own intuition and wisdom which assists in living a more meaningful and joyful life. Through talk and creative expression you will gain insight into your own inquiries and connect with feelings, emotions and situations, gain more understanding, acceptance, self awareness, gratitude and perspective for your state of being.
