Art4Change Program

This is where art and neuroscience intersect.

Using art as a starting point, this program comprises a series of fun workshops  and group coaching experiences designed to help you challenge your fears and develop more confidence while letting go of perfectionism and self-sabotage.

Using the Neuro-Change Methodology combined with art practices, you will learn to:.

  • embrace uncertainty
  • let go of a need to control the outcome and enjoy the process
  • explore of the unknown
  • learn from and give new meaning to mistakes – ‘Happy Accidents’
  • awaken your own creativity
  • find balance between analytical and creative thinking
  • embrace playfulness and curiosity

Come and join us in the studio, in a safe, non-judgemental and supportive environment – even if you are not ‘arty’or have no experience in art creation. Whether you are a complete novice or are a far more experienced artist, these sessions will help you tap into that part of you that is uniquely YOU.

All materials are supplied and you will leave with a new-found confidence that will flow over into many other parts of your life.

15 Day Creative Expression Experience

This is a FREE experience for you to learn to express yourself creatively and start challenging yourself to think outside the box. When you start thinking and expressing yourself through the lens of creativity, new doors open and you become aware of possibilities than you never recognised before.

Each day you will have a new activity to pursue. You will need to have a journal of some kind, whether it be a sketch book, a guilt edge writing journal or a repurposed book that you can draw or write in. An email will be sent to you each morning with the day’s challenge, You can choose the time of day you want to do it and then you have the option to upload it into the dedicated Facebook group, Wise HeART Champions. (request to join the group and you will be added just before the challenge starts.

Activities will include collage, drawing (don’t panic if you don’t think you can draw – it’s about the process, not the outcome, so no experience is necessary), mandalas, journal writing, scribbling and doodling, guided writing topics and much more.

All you need is a journal or book to create in, a pen and some colouring pencils or felt tips pens, paints if you have them, a glue stick, and an open mind. This is where you get to stretch yourself, step out of your comfort zone and have some play time for YOU.

I’ll be in the Facebook group each day with your daily task and, if you miss one day, or want to revisit a previous day, they will all be here in the group with a # so you can find them.

This is a FREE experience so please invite your friends or relatives to join us. The more the merrier.

Why am I doing this? I believe that being creative is ESSENTIAL to your mental health and personal expression and, right now, we need all the help we can get in keeping ourselves emotionally fit, right?

So, no excuses, don’t let Resistance hold you back. There are no prizes for letting fear or negative self-talk run your life yet the wins for embracing something new are astronomical!
