Marg is registered as an art therapist with the NDIS. She sees clients with NDIS plans and assists them to focus on their abilities and their strengths. She works with a calm, non-judging presence which puts clients at ease so that they feel comfortable to express themselves authentically. This inspires great freedom in art making and enhances communication.
Just because we use art making in art therapy it doesn't mean a person has to be 'good' at art, or even have a special interest in it. It's more about the expression and the connection to the non-rational part of the brain than creating a finished product. So it can be beneficial for anyone who is seeking support to bring more ease, resolution and freedom to their lives, or to understand themselves better. It can promote a greater sense of possibility and a deeper sense of self-worth.
Marg has worked with people with Down Sydnrome, Bi-polar disorder, depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD & ADHD, Aquired Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy and MS (amongst others). Her approach is to promote a sense of safety and trust-worthiness, to work in collaboration and offer choice.
