Art Therapy assists you to gain clarity and make 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 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 about emotional, spiritual, and mindful wellbeing for you.

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 the use of art-making and the creative process within the therapeutic relationship. Therefore Art Therapists go through similar training to other types of traditional “talk therapists” but have the additional training in using the healing arts within the therapeutic process.
How does Art Therapy work?
As part of the training of Art Therapists at Kindred Art Space, they have an understanding of and work with symbols, metaphor and storytelling in the art making process which guides them to ask key questions of you, empowering you to find meaning. The meaning, personal associations, and feelings of the artwork are always held by you. 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 deep and long-lasting positive change.
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, it’s power appears within the art-making process itself. Art Therapy is two-fold acting as a release but also 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 and find solutions or simply just find peace within. Each session is guided by you in a nurturing safe place at your pace.
