  • CC Youth Worker, Frankston

    Hi Kez!, I just wanted to extend my thank you for the art therapy session you ran for youth services the other day. The training session provided me with not only professional development but on a personal level as well.  Thank you for inspiring and motivating us.

  • Kez Thank you for an amazing session, we are still buzzing about it.

  • Kerryn is genuine and focuses on my needs. Being very organized and thorough in her approach I am safe to share my experience with her.”
    “She has warmth about her that made me feel comfortable to express myself.

  • Kerryn seems to know what to say and when. She pushes me when I need it but she also lets me sit with stuff that I come to recognize when I see the patterns in my life that no longer serve me.

  • Thanks Kerryn, I now have more confidence in myself. After realizing the bad habits I had got into and repeated in my life, I could make the choice to take back my power. The awareness I now have has helped me to make changes in my life.

Start Up With HeART – How To Market Your Authentic Therapy Practice Course

  • Marbs, Counsellor

    Thank you again for a truly wonderful workshop and for the certificates and slides.

    I came away buzzing with motivation and inspiration thanks to you.  I also found that I was interpreting more revealing things in the artwork.  You’ve probably heard it before but you have a gift and I thank you for sharing it.

  • Tita, Counsellor

    When I registered to attend 2 workshops to help me learn about setting up and growing my private practice I was not sure what to expect with the idea of doing this using art and creativity as part of the process. This was a most enjoyable experience led by Kerryn whose gentle and friendly manner made the process very special. I learned a lot and was able to also appreciate her beautiful and interesting venue Kindred Art Space! I highly recommend her workshops!

  • Clarisa, Counsellor

    Thank you Kerryn for the fantastic 2-day workshop!! The experience was invaluable I highly recommend to everybody. The workshop provides the opportunity for self-growth, so you can work through any personal blocks at your own pace. It was a complete surprise to be able to explore art therapy on a deeper personal soul level. Not only do you learn about business development, you have the opportunity to bond with others and share similar experiences too. The environment of Kindred Art Space is super welcoming and beautiful. The experience was 100% positive and supportive all the way, plus the fireplace was an added bonus!

  • Hayley Brenton, Therapist

    I attended the two day workshop ‘Start Up and Grow Your Business’ for counsellors/therapists. It was such an amazing experience! I walked away from the two days feeling connected and inspired and even though it was a few months ago that I did the workshop I still regularly refer to the notes. Kerryn is a fantastic art therapist and made the workshop incredibly interesting with a wide variety of activities and discussions. I came away with very practical knowledge of steps to take, as well as personal insights that have changed the way I work in my business. Thank you so much Kerryn! It was such a pleasure meeting you and doing your workshop. ❤️ 

  • Marianne Ellis, Soul Reflection Coach

    The two day workshop for growing your private practice was really informative. I felt very well supported and came away feeling inspired and uplifted. I’m really grateful for the opportunity and looking forward to putting into practice what I have learnt, thanks so much.

  • Josephine Edmonds, Art Psychotherapist

    The Start up and grow workshops (now How To Market Your Authentic Therapy Practice online course) helped to clarify my vision of my future business. Kerryn is very welcoming and the large space is beautiful. The creative processes help to get to the heart of your unique experiences and how this can be a positive addition to your skills. I highly recommend doing this workshop for anyone starting a business or feeling their business has lost direction. Loved it!

Community Art Projects

  • Manager EYA

    It was such a pleasure working with you Kez. The young people and staff love it when you’re here. You bring something really special to the refuge every time you come. It will be great to have another mural on the wall.

  • Youth Worker Casey Council

    Kerryn just took her time and put it out there and let the kids come to her. This slowly brought the crowd in until they were all involved. It shows that she was doing it right and shows the community to give an outsider a chance and through this art it has helped them explore their culture and emotions. Go with the flow is the Aboriginal way and Kerryn did just that. I feel that it all comes down to personality.
