Herminia Esperanza Garcia Aviles (BACP) PG Cert Arts Therapy, PCert Counselling
34 Exchange Street
Creative Arts Counsellor.
I am a Creative Counsellor, What do I mean by this?
I work in an integrative and creative way. No artistic experience or ability is needed to benefit from these sessions.
I work on the base that every individual is different and unique, bringing to therapy a distinctive experience of life. I tailor my sessions to every individual with respect, genuineness and empathy. I create a non-judgmental, open and safe environment, allowing the clients to explore creativity, personal growth and self-development, as well as acknowledging a variety of choices by bringing self-awareness.
During the sessions, you could work with pastels, paints, clay, sand tray, active imagination, visualization, drama, post cards, bodywork or mindfulness. It is a tailor-made service where you will feel free and safe to explore, rediscovering productive imagination using the right media for you.
