Art Psychotherapy is a combination of art and psychology.
During each session, you will explore a range of art materials and make art. The emphasis is on the process, not the art product.
No prior art experience is required.
This creative process is facilitated in the presence of a trained Art Therapist to support you in making-meaning and gaining clarity.
Art Therapy is a highly effective and safe therapeutic intervention for self-expression, emotional processing and discovering insights to one's root issues.
Grief is a natural response to the profound impact of loss on our lives. These losses can be sudden, ambiguous, unexpected, or anticipated. Each loss is unique, just like how each relationship is unique.
The type of loss - who you lost, how you lost, and when you lost are all important facets to the grieving experience.
My clinical approach moves away from a stage-model, and is deeply rooted in exploring the attachment, significance of the relationship, nature of the loss, and what it means for your sense of self, identity, and how you perceive the world in its aftermath.
Offering compassionate care with an attuned sensitivity, we will process your unique grieving experience, acknowledge its personal expression (in all its forms...) and gradually make-meaning that can emerge from the wake of physical absence.
Art-as-therapy is an approach used in group work to foster overall emotional wellness and mental health.
Each workshop is thoughtfully designed and customised to meet the needs of an organisation or group.
Jolene has developed workshops and conducted guest lectures and programmes for polytechnic, university students, and adult learners.
