In Search of Self with Expressive Art
I am Kassi, an Expressive Artist, Creative Therapist, Writer
I have come up against conflict, ignorance, misunderstanding. My Path will not always be easy, I imagine. However, I have and will persist, trust and allow it all to unfold.
My Essence, my Soul, Spirit… whatever that word is for you, continues to Become and I consistently release myself from all of those Conditions of Worth and Attributes that I was raised with, to gradually grow into my most Authentic Self.
If YOU have spent your Lifetime so far Seeking Yourself, your Truest Voice, your Soul’s code; whatever you are - a Singer, Writer, Carpenter, Artist, Wanderer… it is all still waiting for you to own and become You.
I can and will Accompany You fearlessly as you shed your psychological shackles in search of Yourself.
This is what I do for those I work with.
Expressive Artist, Creative Therapist, Writer
In 1996, I realised with huge excitement that my love of Art making complemented my Counsellor training beautifully. Soon after I created my first course 'What Kind Of Tree Am I' and shared it widely in my locality. Most of those who came along hadn't painted since School however amazing, unique Trees emerged, as they shared their Life Stories, offering Healing through the expression of their art making.
Following a period of Burn Out, I took some time to finally offer to myself what I offer to everybody else. My kitchen was transformed into an Art Studio and I dug out all my beautiful art supplies I'd stashed away because I had been too busy working to make time for Art and Self Care for me. At last I was listening to Myself. My paintings were raw and spoke of Escape, Fear, Overwork and the broken System I had been working in for many, many years. I could not ignore what my Art was telling me. I left my job, my security, my pension and put a whole new show on the road.
Art allows a deep connection with Oneself and this is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. Self acceptance and how we talk to ourselves can make or break us. When we begin to truly see and hear ourselves, this impacts our relationships at home, at work and in the wider world.
I believe this helps improve our health and the World bringing with it Soulful, meaningful Expressive Art that touches others deeply.
I offer You the opportunity to honour your stories as they arise. My Reflective Prompts invite Self Acceptance and a gentleness towards your self which raises Self Esteem and Confidence, reduces Anxiety and Stress and lifts Mood .
