Circling around the same feelings or issues at work?
The healing arts have been with us since ancient times. Combining psychotherapy and expressive arts therapy is an innovative and effective way to create change in our lives.
It assists us in gaining clarity, expanding our mindset, and finding new perspectives to problems in our lives. Expressive arts are a natural resource that can be used to help us become grounded and regulate our nervous system. There is wisdom in our creations that we can access in contemplative practices.
The creative process provides a path to connect with our Self and inner healing intelligence.
"To use the arts expressively means going into our inner realms to discover feelings and to express them through visual art, movement, sound, writing or drama. This process fosters release, self-understanding, insight and awakens creativity and transpersonal states of consciousness." ~Natalie Rogers
About Lindsay (she/her)...
After completing a Masters in Counselling Psychology I worked in several mental health clinics. During this time I developed a curiosity for the psycho-spiritual aspects of mental illness, psychological suffering and problems in living.
This curiosity led in several directions. I pursued training in expressive art therapy with Prairie Institute of Expressive Art Therapy. Having a lifelong interest in creative outlets intuitively led me in this direction. I believe in the power of creativity to help us restore our health and thrive.
Another discovery was the work of Dr. Stanislav Grof, a psychiatrist, pioneer in psychedelic research and a co-founder of transpersonal psychology. In 2018, I started practicing Holotropic Breathwork, an experiential technique developed by Dr Stanislav and Christina Grof for entering holotropic states (non-ordinary states) of consciousness.
These two therapeutic approaches have shaped my personal self exploration and influence how I approach my work. I am grateful to many people who have supported my journey.
If you are experiencing suicidal or homicidal thoughts or impulses, please call 911 or go to a local emergency department to seek mental health emergency care.
