Seeing the Butterfly

Calming the mind through Creativity

Does your life get too fast, your mind can get caught in overwhelm and anxious chatter? Do you feel as if you are missing moments of calm and beauty?

Art can help.

I have called this course Seeing the Butterfly after a conversation with a friend. We were talking about anxiety and how it is like the constant adrenaline fuelled watch for a predatory beast. The beast may or more likely may not appear, but while we are in this fearful state, we have no time to slow down and notice the small and beautiful things. Like the butterfly.

In this course I offer you mixed media creative prompts, designed to slow you down, invite your imagination and take delight in your process. Each subject has:

  • A prompt, an easy to follow, no experience required invitation.
  • My process. I show you my approach to the prompt and share some of my thoughts along the way.
  • Art Therapy theory. To develop understanding on how this process works.
  • Taking it further. Another prompt which encourages deepening the experience.

I’m your guide, I am an artist and art therapist with thirty seven years experience of running workshops and twenty six working as an art therapist. I’m also a practicing artist with many exhibitions and collaborations to my name.

I’m so passionate about the healing and revealing qualities of the creative process. It has been my go to place in times of calm as well as struggle, I find a timeless wisdom there, I just need to show up. I want to share this with you. I do hope you will give yourself this gift.

The course and all six chapters, complete with original inspiring illustrations is £47.

Work With Me One To One

I am a qualified arts therapist with many years experience. It’s my job to provide a safe confidential space for you to bring whatever feelings you have.

Often it’s hard to make space for difficult feelings in ordinary life, and if left unheard they tend to become more problematic. I’ll help you to become a better friend to yourself.

There are many things we shouldn’t have to do alone.

I can provide a supportive holding space for you to express and explore whatever you need to. All your feelings are welcome.

If you decide to work with me we will commit to an initial 6 weeks. I charge £60 an hour for an online session.

Email me at fran@arti-ms.com to book your free 15 minute chat to ask questions and check me out.
