I have been 'talking' with Kit for a while now and I wonder each time at her ability to deeply listen to me and to hear beyond what I say, to decipher what I need to hear back in order for me to understand myself and to move forward. She does it with honesty and compassion, being straight and loving at the same time. It is all one could ever ask for. To be seen and heard and then be guided to do the work we have to do, that nobody else can do for us.
I came to Kit with a life-changing decision to make. Following brief counselling, I created an illustrated storybook with a lead character, and supporting characters, which did the work in the magical world. Through my story, I readied my psyche to make the decision I needed to make, then to communicate safely to loved ones and set myself up for the next chosen phase of my life. My own creativity supported me to do this safely and at my own pace - sometimes not even a pace I was aware of. It all kind of unfolded as we went. Also, as we progressed, I found out I am creative, and I honestly didn't believe this before.
When I came to Kit my emotional state and confidence were at an all time low. Kit helped me to use art and creativity to uncover the different sides of my psyche. We discovered the traumas at the root of my problems and Kit taught me how to heal them through creativity and play. Working with Kit, I have developed specific tools that allow me to feel and process my hard emotions in healthy ways. I now have the ability and confidence to use art, movement and my creativity to overcome big and small strssors. I have discovered my true self and I love her.
As a child, I was always creating. My ideas were limitless. My creativity is truly my superpower. Unfortunately, as I developed into adulthood I forgot how to harness my creativity and curiosity in a positive way and made some bad choices. Due to this, I began to fear my superpower. Kit’s incredible guidance has helped me unlock my creativity again and channel it into healing myself and those I have hurt. Creativity is now fearlessly incorporated into my daily practice. Kit has helped me navigate the truly hard stuff and deep dive into soul work bravely. I cannot recommend her enough if you truly want to talk to your subconscious.
Kit shows an amazing ability to explore one's creativity both by listening and encouraging while at the same time keeping the sessions very goal oriented. We worked very specifically and I find that very helpful and you feel immediate results. Kit process and work are really organised and she provides you with a review you can read back on to and reflect on the work you are doing. Kit has an amazing creative intuition that guides you in finding your own creative force and intelligence. Anyone that has a creative or work-related problem, Kit would untangle that issue with you.
I came to Kit with a motherload of anxiety and overwhelm as my personal life and professional life collided. Using art therapy helped me to draw out some of the stories that were on high repeat, and reconnected me with a deep calm so I could get back to the person I want to be.
I had already attended eight counselling sessions (with a different practitioner), which were quite helpful, but I felt that we never really moved beyond talking about what had happened. I had 5 sessions with Kit, during which we worked with a variety of media and processes, and as a result, I feel that I went through an emotional transformation. Through the work that we did, I feel that something changed fundamentally inside me, without really having to focus on what the apparent problem was. I found Kit to be an incredibly sensitive, intuitive, creative, confident and funny therapist, who really knows her stuff. It's probably also worth saying that all of this happened while she was in Australia, and I was in the UK - all sessions took place over ZOOM, which worked really well (all without leaving the comfort of my own home).
Kit helped me to regain my lost perspective and, eventually, my resilience. Thanks to her, I was able to see my situation for what it was and slowly but surely emerge back into the light. My obsessional preoccupation with work problems was slowly replaced by a much healthier, more rounded perspective. By encouraging me to paint (something I hadn't done since school), to write poems, to try simple mindfulness exercises and - in particular - to pay attention to the natural world around me and take comfort from it, she gently and skilfully brought me back from what felt like the brink of something awful to a more familiar, comforting place where I was able to gently heal.
I chose to work with Kit and use art therapy to explore an idea I had and the results were profound. Drawing rather than writing or analysing brings insights from the unconscious. Over six weeks working with Kit, new opportunities and creative solutions started to show up easily. I highly reccomend this for individuals, corporate teams and organisations.
I sought Kit's Arts Psychotherapy sessions as a way of finding healing, guidance and self-discovery. Kit's straightforward approach and honest and supportive guidance gave me the space I needed to find the answers I needed. I felt clear after the sessions and I have also learned creative tools for my own use. I highly recommend Kit as an arts psychotherapy facilitator.
