Art Therapy Services

Art Therapy assists you in gaining clarity and making positive changes in a creative and culturally appropriate manner through the medium of art-making, meditation, mindfulness, sandplay therapy, dream work, body movement and more in a safe, nurturing environment.

What is Art Therapy?

Drawing on multiple areas of your brain in connection with your body’s felt senses, creative expressive processes are integrated with models of counselling and psychotherapy. This allows you to gain a different perspective on issues and find solutions.

No previous art experience is necessary – Art Therapy guarantees to draw out your unique creativity, clarity and confidence to bring you emotional, spiritual, and mindful wellbeing.

How does Art Therapy work?

As part of the training of Art Therapists at Kindred Art Space, they understand and work with symbols, metaphor and storytelling in the art-making process, guiding them to ask you key questions and empowering you to find meaning.

You always hold the meaning, personal associations, and feelings of the artwork. Kindred Art Space Art Therapists hold the energetic space for you in a safe and nurturing environment, helping you unlock your power to find your answers. Just as each art piece is one of a kind, the attached meanings to them are highly individual, very powerful, and hold the potential to create profound and long-lasting positive change.

About Kindred Art Space Art Therapists

Kerryn Knight and her fellow qualified Art Therapists at Kindred Art Space and affiliated with the Kindred Art Space Therapist Directory are trained in psychotherapy and counselling processes. They specialise in using art-making and the creative process within the therapeutic relationship. Therefore, Art Therapists undergo similar training to other traditional “talk therapists” but have additional training in using the healing arts within the therapeutic process.

Kerryn Knight, Founder of Kindred Art Space, is a specialist Art Therapist, registered Clinical member of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), and Professional Supervisor with many years of experience in the industry and previously in Staff Training and Business Management for 20 years. Kerryn and her fellow Kindred Art Space practitioners are committed to ongoing personal & professional development to assist you with your development.

I’m not artistic – is Art Therapy suitable for me?

There is no need for any art experience, as Art Therapy does not focus on an art outcome. Instead, its power appears within the art-making process itself. Art Therapy is two-fold, acting as a release and as a tool for self-discovery. Kerryn and her fellow Kindred Art Space Art Therapists guide you through processes that stimulate your right brain hemisphere. This empowers you to unlock your potential, look at issues from a different perspective, find solutions, or just find peace within.

Each session is guided by you in a nurturing, safe place at your pace.
