WHAT I OFFER
HOLISTIC INTEGRATED CREATIVE ARTS THERAPY
is a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art-making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages.
I always make sure my clients feel relaxed in my home office. Each session is created around the clients needs - as every single person is a unique version of themselves
My clients vary in age from 4 years old and upwards. Most clients are teenagers and males have made up a large percentage of my clients lately which is so great to see!
Stress, anxiety, depression, autism, ADHD, self-love, bullying, anger issues, past trauma, LGBQT, teen issues, trauma, loss, accountability & life coaching etc
NDIS self & plan-managed clients welcome
Mindful Photography has been absolutely life-changing to incorporate into my work with Kids, Teens, NDIS clients & Adults. By expressing thoughts and emotions through the lens, it has opened up a whole new way for clients to express how they feel without words. This is my most successful therapy yet.
Mindful Photography sessions can be one-on-one (if requested), online courses are a group session.
Twice a year we do a 'Photography Exhibition' at the Bendigo Bank which is on display for a month.
The kids are so proud to showcase their work to family and friends.
I ALSO .... HELP CLIENTS TO SELL THEIR ART OR PHOTOGRAPHY - EXHIBITION OR ONLINE.
ONE-ON-ONE OR GROUP AFTER SCHOOL SESSIONS AVAILABLE EACH TERM.

What They Say
Finally found someone who genuinely wants to help you and works around so many barriers that you didn’t even realise were there! There are very few people with this level of kindness - genuine and so easy to communicate with. I have already got so many new ideas to help me relax and hopefully help me to sleep better! I feel like I have known Jackie forever - such an easy going person and so easy to talk to. Thank you so much for everything.

Jackie has an amazing calmness and has been so helpful with helping my young foster teens relax and think about their futures and ways to manage their anxiety. I recommend her highly, she is a calming spirit.

One - One Counselling and Group Therapy Session Information
All online Creative Therapy and Counselling sessions are available live via Zoom. You do not need a Zoom account as I will email you a link which you click on just before the appointed time. The great thing about an online session is that there is no driving through heavy traffic to make it on time, you do not have to leave your home (which is a bonus when you have children), you don't get wet when it rains. Adult sessions are mainly after the kids have gone to bed (so you can concentrate) and it is quiet, & finally you can even be on the other side of Australia or in NZ!!
Just make sure you allow for the time difference if living outside of Queensland or on holiday :)
One-on-one sessions can be booked by contacting me privately on 'lets chat', email, text, or phone. Sessions can be held at my home office in Tewantin, 4565, Qld or Walk 'n' Talk sessions are popular for teens. If you would like to meet me first we can catch up over a coffee at the local cafe. Sessions go for 50-60 minutes and I have a range of different therapies to offer such as Creative Therapy, Sand-Tray Therapy, Music Therapy, Meditation, Mindfulness, or Art Journalling.
GROUP SESSIONS AND WORKSHOPS
If there is a subject you would like me to create for a Workshop or Group Session please contact me and we can make it happen! At present for Group sessions I have a Mindful Photography 10 week course which is full for Term 2.
