"SAFE HAVEN" was the exact words one of my first clients used to describe our time together. It was this sense of safety and connection that allowed her to explore life events that had previously kept her: isolated, fearful and angry. Our work together, incorporated directive based and open therapeutic art-making to help her share the burden of her trauma, understand how she was feeling in relation to what she had experienced and to facilitate forming a new sense of direction.
