How Will You Benefit? In So many ways...
You do not have to be 'artistic' although I believe every one of us is an Artist
The less you know about Art the more effective my Approach tends to be
You will learn how to express yourself creatively using mixed media materials
You will learn how to tap in to your Intuition.
You will learn to really Listen to and Attend to Yourself, to Witness your Inner Child who may feel lost or forgotten
My Approach has a wonderful impact on the Relationship you have with Yourself
You will learn how to Let Go of unexpressed Feelings, Emotions, Somatic Experiences
You will learn how our Fingers & Intuition work beautifully with our Unconscious
You will learn how powerful art making can be. It can get to the heart of the matter whereby Talking Therapy hasn't been able to reach without the need for words
Most who undertake my ecourses tend to feel more Assertive and Confident in their Way of Being. You may discover new levels of inner peace, reduced stress, a developing nurturing relationship with YOURself and seeking comfort, joy and calm as you discover how colour and images soothe your Mind and Nervous System
What I have learned mostly over the years is, that through my Approach your Fingers, your Intuition will work through whatever you most Need at the time of creating.
"She was a galaxy, not one planet. She was a forest, not one tree.
She was an ocean, not just one river.
But the world had told her to close and be as small as could be.
But she woke up one day, longing for that little girl.
Who knew she was living in a small corner and not her entire inner world.
And so she slowly unlocked each door, deciding she wanted
to play, live, go wild, no longer hide. And that little girl was finally free,
the one who carried a dancing universe of galaxies, forests and oceans inside"
S C Lourie

When I created my Mixed Media Inner Child, I had no idea how my experience would unfold.
I've “attended” to my Inner Child within personal Therapy. I have also “workshopped” her - rather impersonal with hindsight. However, this time I truly wanted to connect with my Inner Child AND I wanted to do this My Way, through Expressive Mixed Media Art - a powerful combination of Love, Intention & Mixed Media.
Mixed Media simply means we use all sorts of materials and this could be anything - even polyfilla! Craft Papers, Magazines & Travel brochures, wrapping papers, gift tissue, old greetings cards, ribbons, buttons, glitter, sequins, Paint, Inks, Oil Pastels...
anything you and your Inner Child wishes to bring, just go for it!
My Unique Approach to Expressive Art has an incredible healing & therapeutic capacity that happens at a deep level. Working with my Approach brings about an incredible, beautiful, touching and honest experience.
I wanted to make a deep connection with my Inner Child. I wanted to let my Inner Child surprise me with who she truly is. I wanted to Honour her Stories and meet her with Love. I wanted to Accompany her Journey as her stories emerged.
Her journey will continue throughout my lifetime. I believe she is always there, somewhere within no matter what age I am. My Inner Child is wise and true to who I was born to become and I want to See and Listen to her wisdom.
As I worked through this experience, I realised that I Knew her Story in a Cognitive, Thinking way. I felt many things for her, but I had not allowed myself to really meet and connect with her.
Most of all, at last, I felt ready to Love her. This sent tingles through my Heart
On reflection, I learned that I had spent time judging her, viewing her with Critical and Cultural eyes, analysing her coldly, Theoretically, but I had never truly met with her from my Heart & Soul.
I also realised that my Inner Child had not received all that she truly Needed to support her journey through childhood. This is not a negative reflection of my Caregivers. I believe that they did their very best for me with what they knew back then. However today, through my learning and professional training, I know more and different and I want to offer my Inner Child all that I can give her, AND... as time passes and I learn more, I will also adapt and offer her that then, too.
