WHAT DOES TRANSPERSONAL MEAN?
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.
