Indigo Art Therapy is expanding into schools, aged care facilities, government departments and overseas art therapy retreats. The creative space aims to be within easy reach for local existing clients, allowing us to be very familiar with the area and the needs of the clientele.

Corporate groups, such as creative team building activities, school groups and other networks that can benefit from the sharing process, find the art therapy workshops powerfully effective, engaging and often …lots of fun. It’s about succeeding through creativity.

Why the name Indigo?

INDIGO, the colour of the BROW chakra or third eye, is associated with following your soul’s path and trusting your own intuition. It refers to the ability to see things from a ‘higher’ viewpoint which fosters your personal growth.  I invite you to join me in Art Therapy to realise a more integrated sense of yourself, authenticity and self-acceptance in a creative and safe space.

The key to healing is in the name…. indigo : Go IN, DIG it out and let it GO
