Expressing Feelings in Colour
Expressing Feelings In Colour
This eCourse contains many different Videos and Prompts. I demonstrate through my videos how we can Express our Feelings & Emotions through colour & texture without the Need for Words.
Feelings, Emotions, Thoughts, Somatic Sensations, Pain, Inner Conflict...
When I Embrace and Accept everything happening within me, all the uncomfortable, painful Feelings and Sensations ease.
Like me, you may have been taught as a Child Not to Feel, Not to Cry, Not to Open Up and Share and strongly encouraged To Be Strong, Not Make a Fuss or cause a Scene? Therefore we learned how to stuff down our Big, Uncomfortable Feelings, sometimes accompanied with food, alcohol or something else, denying and ignoring our Selves and growing up not knowing what to do with our Feelings and Emotions - or anybody else's to that matter!
There was a time when I rarely knew how I felt, which is why I Paint and make Mixed Media art.
I doodle, scrawl with my non-dominant hand, collage and finger paint. I Express and Acknowledge my Self by Listening to - and Accepting - who I am and how I Feel as much as I am able.
I may not know what the Feeling is about, but by expressing myself, the discomfort eases within and we begin to feel much better, and remarkably, very quickly.
As a Counsellor, Artist, Body & Somatic Therapist I Understand the Importance of Self Expression, Acceptance and Acknowledgement
Discover Why We Avoid Our Feelings
We rarely quell our Laughter or our Joy. Yet we squash our more uncomfortable Feelings like Sadness, Anger, Jealousy into a big, shadowy sack which causes us great Pain & Discomfort.
In this course I will share useful information which will help you make sense of our avoidance.
Making Art To Express Our Feelings
I share through many different videos, along with Reflective Prompts, demonstrating how we can use paint, colour, texture, papers and movement in our arms and hands to express how we feel without the need to know exactly What we are Feeling.
It's the Process, not the outcome that counts.
I am skilled at helping people to Express themselves.
Discover more about your Uncomfortable, Somatic Feelings
We usually know we are feeling something. Big feelings and emotions tend to have a way of letting us know they are there. Could be a ripple, a spiraling, a tightening, a weighing down, fluttering butterflies, a lump in the throat... just for starters. Migraine, fatigue, body pain, stress and tension... it all finds a way to become known to us!
Whether through tears, aches & pains or migraine, if we do not allow ourselves to Feel, our Feelings Will find a way to be expressed bodily. I truly believe this.
As you watch my videos and express your self, you will notice what happens and how we can find a way to self soothe, self regulate and find words all of which leads me to feel much better and more grounded. I teach you how to do this. Self Love, Self Acceptance, Self Compassion... it is all vital for great mental health and well being.
Research teaches us it is vital to Feel our Feelings and to find ways to express and accept them as this leads to a much more Regulated and Soothed Living experience. It reduces Stress, Anxiety and Lifts Mood. It reduces Body Pain and all of this leads to greater Health & Wellbeing.
