Meet our Art Therapist:
MA. Art Therapy (La Trobe), BA. Fine Art (RMIT)
With a background in fine arts and a passion for employing art therapy to help people, Abigail has delivered art therapy programs at the Alfred Hospital, Montefiore Aged Care Facility, and the Metropolitan Remand Centre.
Abigail independently designs programs tailored for clients, helping them achieve respective outcomes.
For patients with mental health issues, her programs expose patients to different art materials to provide opportunities for self-expression and to find relief.
For people in aged care, Abigail creates spaces where the residents feel comfortable experimenting with different mediums, whilst discussing how they feel and socialising with others.
Most recently, Abigail has run art therapy programs at the Alfred, in the adult psychiatry unit, with programs designed for both individuals and open studio art groups.
Each home and community is different.
That’s why Abigail will tailor art programs to suit the needs of your clients, delivered on-site.
