The version of Expressive modalities (ExAT) I practice, combines expressive art(s) therapy, Psychodrama, process work & somatic therapies.

In a session(s) we experientially focus on refining our 5 SENSE perception and INTUITION as a gateway to our evolved faculties of Creative Imagination, Expressive movement, Vocalisation and Sensory-motor rhythms. The methodologies are evidence based and validated by neuroscience research on the pyscho-sensory-neuro-biological foundation(s) of mental & emotional well-being as well as scaffolded by the ancient cultural and communal healing practice(s).

Art that arises out of the inner landscape, and is connected to our lived experience, illuminates the darkness and heals the soul.
