Karen is a Transpersonal Art Therapist, an artist, writer, curator and researcher. She is a firm believer in the inherent healing qualities of the Arts. She has run art therapy workshops for the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction, self-harming behaviour and eating disorders, for people seeking to bring about positive change in their lives and for health professionals working with trauma as a result of the 2011 floods in Queensland. She has a particular interest in Spiritual Emergence/y.
She uses Art Therapy to help in the resolution of her own life difficulties and is continually surprised and delighted by the insight it brings. She has also been using journalling for most of my adult life – first as a traveller in the world and now, more often, for inner exploration and understanding. She is Assistant Editor for Arts/Art Therapy at All Things Healing – www.allthingshealing.com – an online community for healing mind, body,spirit, planet. In her private practice, Karen brings empathy and experience to each individual and loves to see clients get back in touch with their own innate wisdom.
Karen is now based at beautiful Killcare on the Central Coast. She is available for private consultations and for group work, discounts are available for CCM students.
