My Story

Hi I’m Mariangela

I’m a Creative Arts Therapist who is passionate about the healing nature of the Arts. I believe the creative process deeply connects the mind, body, and spirit. Emotional conflicts can be addressed, physical symptoms faced and accepted, and spiritual experiences realised, restoring harmony with self, others and nature.

I provide a trauma-informed, person-centred, holistic approach that integrates the expressive arts (image making, clay, music, creative writing, sand-play, movement and somatic awareness) as a gateway to healing, reparation and transformation. I work with all mental health conditions and specialise in disordered eating, eating disorder recovery, body dissatisfaction and body image. Creative Arts Therapy focuses on the process of creation rather than the final product with the goal to appreciate who we are in the moment, explore reasons for our behaviours, and establish new barometers for self-acceptance.
