Art Heals

We give meaning to our lives through the personal stories we develop and carry with us. We can transform our memories, heal broken stories and re-author our narrative plot. Narrative Arts Therapy is a creative, psycho-social form of therapy that helps us re-construct strong narratives that support our growth.

One On One Sessions

A face to face session of one and a half hours offers you a holistic experience of healing through narrative arts therapy. It is specifically structured to support you in continuing the process on your own, with a guide book written by Dr Winberg for use beyond the session in your own time. You will be given references to a range of audio visual resources to appreciate narrative arts therapy beyond the therapy studio.


Online Sessions

Online therapy is fast becoming a preferred option due to increased privacy, autonomy and the ability for individuals to choose or create a preferred environment conducive to the therapeutic process. Teenagers often prefer this highly effective online experience. It frees them of the stigma that are sometimes attached to having therapy, and allows them to invite the therapist into their own room.

It is a more affordable option.

Courses

Dr Winberg's course consists of an introductory session, followed by 6 sessions for the first module. Accompanied by the course workbook, The story of you, the course offers a wide range of audio-visual resources and references. People whose stories are marked by grief, loss, trauma, anxiety, divorce, menopause, addiction recovery or chronic illness, found this short-term therapy a profound healing experience.
