Trauma leaves us with knots of buried anxiety, flavouring our perspective with fear and constricting our capacity to trust, to enjoy life.

Marianne provides the space and support for each child/adolescent to find their own pace and path towards trusting her, leading eventually to a deeper trust in themselves. She offers sensitivity and skill, a deep conviction of their potential, and a sense of fun.

Within this, the flow of creativity and imagination of a child/adolescent’s artmaking can’t help but loosen these knots. Inevitably it brings echoes of their buried fears into form. Thus anxiety becomes gently eased, confidence enhanced, and profound insight becomes possible.
