Founder, Your Loving Mind
Creative Arts Therapy: Dance Movement Therapy, Art Therapy & Counselling, AThR, DTAA (Prov. DMT), M.A.C.A (Level 2)
Expressive therapies to help you thrive
Hi, I'm Anna,
A mental health, trauma & pain specialist who works with individuals and NDIS participants.
I offer you a unique avenue to explore, express, and process your emotions and experiences via art, movement and dance. This therapeutic method nurtures your self-awareness, encourages self-expression, and regulates your emotions. By engaging in creative processes, you gain insight into your thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations, promote emotional healing, and develop effective coping strategies. It provides you with a safe and non-verbal means of self-discovery, making it particularly beneficial if you find traditional talk therapy challenging.
My approach is person-centered and trauma-informed, tailoring sessions and treatment plans to meet your unique needs. I'm dedicated to supporting your mental well-being by working collaboratively, ensuring you move safely towards your goals and needs.
As a professionally registered Creative Arts Therapist, I hold accreditation from the Australian, New Zealand, and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA). Additionally, my expertise extends to Dance Movement Therapy, recognised by the Dance Therapy Association of Australasia (DTAA).
With a Master of Creative Arts Therapy, specialising in Dance Movement Therapy, I have experience working with psychosocial disability, mental health, trauma, and chronic pain.
