Art Therapy and Counselling 

Individual Therapy Sessions

 

Individual sessions can be as a 60 minutes or 90 minutes session. These are available to young people, children, and adults. Sessions include Art Therapy and can incorporate Talk Therapy modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Narrative Therapy. I don't like to use labels or over-pathologize individual experiences, but the type of things we can work together on include:

Generalized Anxiety and Feelings of Overwhelm

Depression and Low Moods

Traumatic Events and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 

Self-Esteem and Self-Compassion 

Sexuality and Gender Identity 

Personal Development and Wellbeing

Autism and Neurodiversity 

Identity and Individuation

Grief and Loss

Cultural Diversity and Navigating the World

Transitions and Changes 

The use of Therapeutic Arts Practise also incorporates Play Therapy, Sand Play and Dance and Movement. If you have an NDIS Plan, I am a registered NDIS Provider. I can work with you to identify goals and holistically support your NDIS plan with a combination of therapeutic interventions.

Rainbow Muse also offers therapy for children click below for more information. 

Group Therapy Sessions

 

If you are looking on behalf of an organisation, school or community group I can offer therapeutic support in group settings. Art Therapy can be held as a group over 4 to 8 weeks. ​Sessions can focus on a particular mental health concern, or explore themes specific to the cohort. Participants journey and process together. All groups are age and developmentally-appropriate, culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, and inclusive. Creative and Expressive Arts Therapy engages the whole brain and allows for the integration of cognitive, feeling and sensory processes. Groups can aid participants to:

Express feelings that may be difficult to verbalise

Share in a safe nurturing environment

Improve motor skills and physical coordination

Explore their imagination and creativity

Develop healthy coping skills and strategies

Create new ways of regulating emotions

Improve self-esteem and confidence

Find alternative ways to communicate and express

Identify blocks to emotional expression and personal growth

Groups can also be constructed with a focus on evidence-based group programs I am trained in contact me for a full list.

Connecting Body and mind

Yoga, Mindfulness and MBCT 

Rainbow Muse offers mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), a therapeutic intervention combining elements from mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). MBCT incorporates mindfulness exercises such as yoga, body awareness, as well as daily homework, like eating or doing household chores with full attention on your actions, moment by moment. This helps cultivate feeling truly present.

Rainbow Muse can also incorporate Yoga and Mindfulness as elements in therapeutic groups and individual sessions, or when working with young children or teens. Or they can be run as sessions on their own. As a registered yoga teacher with vast experience in mental health and community development settings, Chenai is able to develop programs that meld physical and emotional wellbeing with movements specifically-designed for mental health and grounding.
