Mindful Art is a service based in Galway that offers Art Therapy sessions and Mindfulness workshops.
How can I help you?
Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family or others, start with getting in contact. Through opening up the conversation about the challenges experienced we can begin to explore, understand and work together towards change.
I support clients with the following:
Low Self Esteem
Let me introduce myself
My journey to art therapy began when I studied Fine Art at the Limerick School of Art and Design. After graduating I spent time working with children and adults with intellectual disabilities both in schools and in the community before training as an Art Psychotherapist at Goldsmiths University of London.
Since completing my masters in 2014 I have worked with CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), Youth Counselling Services, Therapeutic Crisis Intervention Services and have worked in both Primary and Secondary Schools as a Therapist.
Becoming aware of the need for help or support is a huge step in the journey for change.
Everyone deserves a space to be listened to and heard, to explore their individual experience and challenges, and to be supported in understanding themselves. Through this process they can be supported in connecting with self-compassion and work towards change.
Talk to me first
Start with getting in contact either over the phone or through email. From there we will have a discussion about the support you are seeking and the services I offer.
Book your session
If the therapeutic services I offer are suitable to your needs we will arrange an introductory session either over zoom or in person. When working with children I will first arrange a meeting with the parents/carers.
Come sit with me
From the first session we will begin to explore in detail the challenges being experienced and create a therapeutic plan together.
What is Art Therapy
You don't need to be an artist or "good" at art to avail of art therapy.
Speaking about feelings can be challenging, especially for those still developing their emotional language or those who do not have the ability to communicate their experience verbally. Art therapy creates a space where clients are invited to use art material through which they can explore, express and work through the issues, problems or concerns that brought them to therapy.
Art Therapy is an evidence-based form of Psychotherapy. It draws on theory from the fields of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, attachment, psychology and neuroscience. My approach is also influenced by play therapy, mindfulness, compassion focused, humanistic and trauma informed approaches.
