I’m your Art Therapist at Featherlight and my name is Linda. I became acquainted with therapy involving art processes following a sudden life changing event. Art therapy has enabled me to review my own perspective on life.
I enjoy the healing energy in creativity so I resolved to share this with others and chose to embark on studying art therapy formally. After completing my Masters of Art Therapy I am a qualified Art Therapist with the Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Art Therapies Association (ANZACATA) and a registered counsellor with the Australian Counselling Association (APA). My experience includes facilitating individual and group art therapy sessions with children and young people in out of home care. Additionally, liaising with carers and case managers within a clinical team.
Creating art in a supportive environment either individually with a therapist or in a group of like-minded people can be deeply nurturing. Living by the beautiful Budgewoi Lake allows me to continue my quest to appreciate nature as well as discovering new mediums and ways of exploring my own artistic and restorative journey.
Life before art therapy saw me enjoying administrative roles in private enterprise before spending many years as a Primary school teacher, Teacher-Librarian and support teacher.
