Creative Arts Psychotherapy
Creative Arts Psychotherapy uses person centred, strengths based approaches, mindfulness strategies, art therapy techniques, body awareness, to help you reconnect with yourself, heal your past and start thriving again. Modalities include using sandtray therapy, movement, music, drumming, voice therapy and art therapy techniques to help you reconnect, process and recover. No previous artistic experience required – it is about your process, not the product.
Somatic Psychology – Trauma Therapy
Using a trauma-informed approach we work from a whole brain based perspective. Once we understand the neuroscience and history of the brain, how it develops, why secure attachment relationships in childhood are so essential for healthy brain development, and how early trauma (including in utero, birth and sensitive periods of brain wiring) impact brain development, we can learn strategies to help manage our behavioural ‘symptoms.’
Modalities include Mindfulness, Somatic Experiencing, Sandtray Therapy, Sensorimotor psychotherapy, Somatic regulation, Creative Arts Counselling and Trauma Sensitive Yoga that work with early traumas, sensations, and stresses that are stored predominately in the right and lower brain regions. We focus on building our resiliency and capacity in these symptoms, cultivating self-compassion, rediscovering the language of the body and using it to guide our healing, and creating our own sense of safety – within ourselves and with others.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), this widely used and evidence based technique is very successful with helping people struggling with anxiety, eating disorders, depression, chronic pain and OCD.
Virtual Reality Immersion Therapy with Psious
This revolutionary approach safely immerses clients in varying environments that help them to grow their skills and strategies which can be used in their lives outside of the therapeutic space. It uses biofeedback to track how they are responding to situations so they get a measurable outcome on their success as they grow in skills and strategies.
