Since 1989 I have practiced as an art therapist. Expanding aspects of caring, increasing creativity promotes and empowers client self-awareness in a supportive environment. I value and believe in self-expression and communication, encouraging exploration, experimentation and extending creative abilities. I encourage people to explore and develop their own visual language and self expression using a variety of materials. I work with people who desire to be creative, people who feel blocked and people with different health conditions such as ALS, strokes, depression and cancer. Web Site: Catherine Fraser

I have always believed in the resilience and courage of the human spirit, our ability to create change in our lives, and our need for compassion and connection. My work as an educator and art therapist with children and adults – special needs, stroke survival, trauma, anxiety, mental health and addictions, life transitions and wellness – has only strengthened this belief.

After an extensive training and with my experience in the areas of Psychology, Expressive Arts Therapy and Medical Assistance over 20 years, I developed and implemented these in “Healing Arts Therapy”. I have successfully used “Healing Arts Therapy” since 1991 in my private practice in Switzerland, where I treated clients with serious disorders, such as incest, depression, cancer, suicide, alcohol-drug abuse, anorexia etc.
“Healing Arts Therapy” is a holistic approach to mental and physical health and contains a variety of different methods. It distinguishes itself from the traditional psychotherapy by working with all levels of the person (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual). In order to change destructive patterns, “Healing Arts Therapy” works with the unconscious body and its hidden emotions to bring into awareness the root cause of the problems. It is fundamental for inner growth, to be seen in our potential rather than in our mistakes. Therefore “Healing Arts Therapy” has a strong focus on the individual vision of each person. We learn how to bring this vision into life by strengthening our inherent qualities of patience, endurance, self-confidence, humility, creativity and forgiveness to mention a few.Web Site: Dimutara
