Finding Beauty in Dark Moments ...


I'm Assistant Editor, Arts and Art Therapy, on a wonderful site called They're lovely people at ATH and I'm forever grateful I wandered onto their site three years ago and saw they were asking for editors. The site brings together a worldwide community of individuals and alternative healing sites and organisations, dedicated to educating and inspiring people on topics relating to alternative healing of mind, body, spirit and the planet.If you're a practitioner, you can register your practice or orgainisation on the site for free. 

I've included a list of articles I've written for the site, articles I've commissioned from other artists and art therapists, plus youtube videos to do with the use of art and art therapy as healing tools. They will give you a good idea of who I am in relation to art therapy and using art/writing as therapy which you may be able to apply to your own life.

If you have an article on art therapy, how art has helped you through difficult times or just generally how you use art in your life, please feel free to contact me and I can submit it to allthingshealing.
