Hi, I’m Angela. Thank you for taking the time to explore my website! I'm a qualified Transpersonal Art Therapist, Meditation Teacher and Holistic Counsellor. What I love about transpersonal work is that it expands our awareness beyond our current sense of self to see and understand more - beyond our current perceptions. Transpersonal work helps us to find insight, meaning, purpose and helps expand our awareness and transform our lives. It shifts us into the realm of endless possibilities!
Art therapy is such a powerful tool at the core of what I do. Creative expression has always given me a sense of release and relief, along with the feeling that my soul has the chance to speak... Through art making, we can connect to the deepest parts of ourselves – the parts that can quite often get lost in the busyness of everyday life.
I'm passionate about helping you regain a deep, sacred connection with yourself, so you can hear your soul's voice and find the answers you seek, within. I not only work intuitively with you, I guide you to step into your power, authenticity and connect with your own intuitive voice.
I feel blessed and privileged to share the immense power of exploring life through art and holistic therapies.
My Qualfications include: Advanced Diploma Transpersonal Art Therapy, Certificate in Holistic Counselling, Certificate in Meditation Teaching. I gained my Art Therapy qualification through IKON Institute - a leading training organisation specialising in art therapy. IKON Institute is an RTO approved by The Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA); the peak professional body that represents creative arts therapists in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia/Pacific region.

I help you navigate your inner landscape and strengthen the sacred connection you have with life, and yourself.
I see our inner landscape as a complex combination of thoughts, feelings, sensations, emotions, ideas, beliefs and dreams. Within each of us, there is a wondrous, surprising and sometimes challenging landscape to navigate and explore.
To exist in the chaos and busyness of this world and stay connected to your core - the deepest part of you that is your calm, true essence and authentic self, can certainly be challenging.
Amidst all of our responsibilities and tasks to be done, we can so easily fall into feeling disconnected from who we are. Plus, we have social media, videos, games, on-demand movies and music – a whole range of on-demand external stimuli to distract us from our internal wellness. Stress and anxiety are on the rise for so many of us, and we can too easily lose our sense of self.
THIS IS WHY I USE A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF CREATIVE
ART-MAKING, MINDFULNESS, MEDITATION & BODY AWARENESS TO HELP YOU NAVIGATE YOUR INNER LANDSCAPE AND HEAR YOUR SOUL'S VOICE...
A holistic approach so you can feel connected on all levels and step into your power and authentic self.
