ARTFIX: Art Therapy EMDR Therapy Sandplay Therapy ArtFix has been offering support, in the form of Art Therapy, Sandplay, Educational Assessments and EMDR therapy, for children and adults since 2013. I am a registered Arts Therapist (ANZACATA) and Educational Psychologist (NZPB and NZPS). I am also qualified in EMDR and Sandplay.
Art Therapy clients may suffer from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or confidence, compulsive behaviours, eating disorders, anger control, phobias or any other issue that prevents us from living our lives as we wish. These may be a result of life experiences or trauma that have become linked to feelings or beliefs about the self, others or the world. Art Therapy provides a safe space and medium for exploring these issues, processing past and present experiences, connecting with and learning to manage associated feelings. Similarly, EMDR provides clients with opportunities to move on from past experiences that hold us in the past and prevent us from enjoying the present. Both art therapy and EMDR can be combined, along with sandtray work, depending on what clients prefer.
