Healing in Community

 

Art Therapy Workshops

We believe that sharing and witnessing each others story is an integral aspect of healing. In our workshops we use art, meditation, imagery & metaphor to take participants on both and individual and shared journey. 

We run a variety of workshops and can tailor these to a group or corporation or design something to suit your unique needs.

Live Softly hold their own groups, and we have also run groups through The Butterfly Foundation, Body Matters Australia and the Eating Disorders Unit at Wesley Mission Hospital.

Art Activations

Corporate Events

& Design Workshops

If you have a space to activate we can design art and interactive installations to bring it to life. We once designed a giant interactive mandala for the MCA Art Bar. 

If you are a team leader and need to think of some creative ways to inspire and help your team connect we have done this for Linkedin and other corporates.

If you are interested in our knowledge in social enterprise and design thinking we can design a think tank and teach creative design thinking skills to help your group or students to come up with out-of-the-box and purposeful solutions!

Art Therapy Workshops

& NDIS Workshops

We design & facilitate art therapy groups for teens, schools and NDIS Agencies, focusing on experiencing art therapy in a group setting, developing emotional literacy skills, sharing and listening skills. These workshops will often involve art making processes, sharing in groups and other experiential processes to suit the theme and age of the group.  

Live Softly have designed groups for teens (10-13 yrs) around the theme of puberty, creative groups for kids with disability and groups designed for the over 65s. Please get in touch if you would like a group designed for your clients.

Testimonials

I so enjoyed my day at the art therapy workshop. It was such a peaceful, reflective way to escape the grind--I left feeling revitalised and centered.  Elise was a fabulous facilitator. She has a presence that makes every idea feel valued and creative; she brings a sense of sincerity to her practice that is really refreshing. I honestly could have spent many more hours in the workshop and will highly recommend Elise's future workshops to everyone I know!

I highly recommend attending a workshop with Elise. I have never done anything like this before.  The draw card for me was coupling the day with an opportunity to express myself through art, which was better than I could have imagined. The day was relaxed and the space felt very safe, Elise was amazing and very nurturing.

I highly recommend this experience and would do it again in a heart beat.!

This was such an amazing workshop. It was the perfect way to start and activate this new luna year. I will definitely be at the next one and am keen for the next art therapy adventure.

Such a beautiful healing experience.
