My mission is simple:
To deliver a little bit of sunshine to as many people as possible through creative expression and random acts of kindness.
Mishy Rowan, Art Therapy & Counselling
My mission, to deliver help to those in need, extends to my art therapy practice which is informed by a strengths based, client lead approach encouraging authentic self expression and empowerment within a creative, heart-centered environment.
As a graduate of the Master of Art Therapy at Western Sydney University (MA ATh) I hold a professional membership with ANZACATA, along with the necessary insurances. I work with clients who experience a range of mental health challenges, many who are recipients of NDIS and I hold a current Working With Children's Check. I am also a certified yoga teacher and a dedicated meditator.
Whilst I currently work with clients who experience psycho-social disability, I have worked with youth in out-of-home-care and women who experienced DV. I enjoy working with all ages and abilities and I look forward to discussing how art therapy could help you achieve your specific therapeutic goals.
Being client lead, art therapy sessions are attuned to your interests and abilities, encouraging you to find your own forms of therapeutic expression using a range of medium, be it eco-art, found objects, costumes, clay, painting, drama, storytelling, sound-making and various other forms of creative expression.
I know first-hand how art therapy can be used to overcome life's challenges, as my story with Art Therapy was borne out of a desire to surround myself with colour after experiencing severe pain after surgery. This journey presented me with an opportunity to experience first hand the healing power of art as therapy - its ability to ease physical pain whilst also creating pathways to improve self-esteem, enhance resilience and repair relationships.
