What is ET?

The Australian form of Expressive Therapies has been largely developed by Mark Pearson and Helen Wilson over the last 35 years. We combine Creative Arts Therapies with Emotion-focused and Somatic-focused approaches to therapy. This integrative and pluralistic approach combines: Art and Music in counselling, Symbol work (use of miniatures), Sandplay Therapy, Somatic focus, Relaxation, Mindfulness and other Self-awareness activities, Therapeutic and Expressive writing, Self-discovery worksheets, Visualisation, Drama and Role-play, Emotion-focused processes, Bioenergetics and movement activities, Self-esteem activities using meditative techniques, within a client-centred counselling approach.
