Alchemy: Healing through Art and Nature

The world can be stressful and confusing…but there is hope. If you’ve tried conventional talk-based counselling but nothing has “shifted”, Transpersonal Art Therapy can be a refreshing change.  I specialize in Group Programs and Workshops and I also focus providing services for people in rural, regional and remote areas. 


You found me! I'm Sara Isherwood.

I run Alchemy, a healing service with a focus on the healing qualities of Art Making and Nature. Would you like to

  • Connect with Nature and your imagination as a source of healing...?

  • Learn sustainable, satisfying ways to work with Mother Earth and your creativity to solve life's problems...?

  • Be more resilient and courageous...? 

You have come to the right place.

I offer professional services in Counselling, Transpersonal Art Therapy and Reiki Healing. I also design and facilitate specific Workshops and Programs for people living in rural, regional and remote areas.



The word Transpersonal simply describes experiences and worldviews that extend beyond the everyday – such as different states of consciousness, dreams, symbols, myth and story in the human psyche.

Transpersonal Art Therapy uses transpersonal experiences (which we all share), art and natural processes in a healing way. Transpersonal Art Therapy can be a engaging, satisfying and refreshing way of solving problems. 



I was born in remote central Australia and grew up with a connection to the Earth, and a love of drama making art, and the bush. At 19, I moved to Brisbane to study a BA in Drama at the Queensland University of Technology. Since graduating I have worked, lived and travelled through much of Australia and overseas. I worked in community arts and theatre, retail and small business, biodynamic farming, administration, disability services, child protection, and private practice (counselling).

I offer concession rates for students and pensioners.

Thank you for visiting and feel free to send me a message or enquiry.
