Narrative art tells a story.

One On One Sessions

A 90-minute in-person session provides a holistic healing experience through narrative arts therapy. It includes a guide book by Dr Winberg for continued self-guided healing, and audiovisual resources for further exploration of narrative arts therapy.

Online Sessions

Online therapy is increasingly popular due to its privacy, autonomy, and the ability to choose a preferred environment. Teenagers find it effective and less stigmatizing, as they can have therapy in their own room. It is more affordable.

Courses

An introductory session followed by six sessions, includes "The Story of You" workbook, and audio-visual resources. The course is beneficial for women and teens facing challenges, including grief, trauma, anxiety, loss, menopause, or chronic illness.

Podcast

Dr Winberg discusses the history of healing through the arts, focusing on loss, grief, life transitions, and recovery. The podcast includes adapted stories of her students and clients, along with book reviews on neuro aesthetics and the science of art.
