Honouring My Inner Child £350
Welcome to my Expressive & Therapeutic World
I've created an Intuitive, Expressive Process which gently guides you in an Experiential way to Connect with your Inner Child, who I believe is always Present, although may be hiding.
Experiential Learning means you learn by Experiencing, by doing & participating, by observing me in my videos and by reflecting on your experience - I guide you all the way through this.
As I model my Approach, I share generously throughout my Videos and Reflective Prompts which allows you to place my Approach in to a Context and eases you through it.

Most who undertake my ecourses tend to feel more Assertive and Confident in their Practice and their Way of Being. You might wish to develop yourself in terms of inner peace, reducing stress, developing a nurturing relationship with YOU and just seeking comfort, joy and calm as you discover how colour and images soothe your Mind and Nervous System which are benefits too..
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. You don't need to 'know' just be willing to embrace my Process and observe what happens.
"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"

When I created my Mixed Media Inner Child, I had no idea how my experience would unfold.
Over the last 22 years, 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.
I invite YOU to Honour YOUR Inner Child through my unique process, here.
