Creative Arts Therapist, Marita Jacobsson offers one-to-one & group sessions online and in Castlemaine at Thresholds Studio: A spacious light filled studio in regional Victoria, Australia.

Dear Guest to this space, welcome warmly,
 
Perhaps you are seeking support for yourself or someone you care about. Or perhaps you work for an organisation and you’re seeking therapy for an individual or a group of people, in your care.
 
Here, I will give you a little overview of my work and approach and if you would like to know more, feel free to reach out and we can have an email or phone conversation.
 
I offer in-person sessions for indviduals and groups at my Thresholds Studio in Castlemaine, plus online sessions for individuals and groups too. In addition to individuals’ self-funding their sessions, organisations such as Anglicare, Amicus and VOCAT also fund me to support individuals and groups needing therapy.
 
I work with women, customising my work to individuals' needs and intentions for therapy, wellbeing support and creative connections.

Presently, I support people navigating an array of challenges including trauma, anxiety, depression, self-harm, chronic physical illness, chronic mental illness, grief, anger and life purpose re-desiging. I work with a multi-modal arts approach (from my Masters training at The Melbourne Institute for Experiential and Creative Arts Therapies), companioning people to inquire into what they bring to their work with me, using an array of artistic mediums (including visual arts, writing, poetry, letter writing, photography, drama, dance, movement, textiles, sculpture, play etc.).

I am also passionate about creative movement and therefore embodiment, so this medium of somatic (body-based) awareness is woven in according to people's comfort, with bringing their bodies into the work. My work is trauma-informed and connected to; neuroscience approaches, Narrative Therapy influences and is now becoming even richer through studies in:  'Somatic Experiencing' , 'Internal Family Systems' and 'Mindfulness Self Compassion'.
 
I also support individuals who are managing their own NDIS funds and others who are 'Plan Managed’ and have chosen to experience Art Therapy with me, as part of their NDIS plan. I am a Registered NDIS Provider, so drop me a line to discuss how you can use your NDIS package for sessions with me
 
I am offering you an introductory conversation to see if my approach may be the right one for yourself or for someone in your care. I offer online sessions if distance is an issue. If you're curious to know more, feel free to reach out, ask questions and start the conversation.
 
However, if you decide I am not the right person after our conversation, I will try my best to connect you to other amazing professionals, hoping you will find the right one for your needs.
 
With kindness,
Marita
