Why Kerryn Became An Art Therapist
My practice involves a blend of three approaches, including my Master’s Level training over the past 14 years. My background includes 3 decades of experience in Community Services, Staff Training, and Business Development. Yet it is my unique lived experience that provides the vessel for the Transpersonal and Companioned Inquiry approaches I work with. I draw on the great insights I have gained on my own healing and practice journey and pay it forward to those I work with.
Kerryn’s approach draws on a blend of mind-body and spiritual aspects. These include looking beyond a person’s persona, inviting in personal Myth and Symbol work through Sandplay and a structured, research-based, expressive form of Creative Inquiry. Kerryn’s role is to companion you along your mental health continuum, and her techniques are suitable and deeply resonating for all ages and abilities.
Kerryn has over 3 decades of experience in Community Services, Staff Training, Lecturing of Arts Therapy students at Ikon Institute and Business Management. Together with this background and through working on personal setbacks and ongoing professional development, she discovered a safe, soft side approach to the issues she faced when she first embarked on formal studies in Arts Therapy.
In 2008, taking a leap of faith into the unknown, Kerryn commenced her Empowered Art Therapy private practice, where she turned her passion for Counsel and Art into a service that helps transform the lives of those she works with.
Kerryn works globally in a virtual setting and face to face from her Centre for mental health, Kindred Art Space, facilitating individual one-to-one sessions, team building, and professional self-care workshops for a variety of industries that seek to nurture their business, staff, and clients alike.
As an Art Therapist & Supervisor, I bring my life experience coupled with three schools of formal training into the work I do. These schools include the Transpersonal, Sandplay Therapy and MIECAT’s Form of companioned inquiry, all of which have changed my life!
