Zeva Art Therapy

Hello, I'm Zeva, welcome to Zeva Art Therapy - a holistic, creative therapeutic approach. I companion people to connect with their creativity, focus on wellness and grow. We all have an innate capacity to express ourselves, be creative and make meaning from our life experiences. 

Both of my offerings, Creative Companioning and Creative Arts Therapyare invitations to express yourself and experience change and growth, bringing attention to what's meaningful. Both these offerings are for those with an openness to imagine new possibilities.

 

What is Creative Companioning?

“It is in our nature to explore, to reach out into the unknown. The only true failure would be not to explore at all.”- Ernest Shackleton

What if you could explore new possibilities for your life and way of being in the world?

  • Are you looking to rejuvenate your creative practice?

  • Build a creative life for yourself?

  • Are you looking for a companion to explore your creative practice?

  • Are you feeling stuck with expressing your creativity?

  • Have you been feeling overwhelmed by self-doubt or perfectionism?

  • Do you want to develop creative confidence?

  • Do you want to develop trust in your emergent self?

  • Do you have a creative idea or project you want to explore with another?

So what is Creative Companioning?

It's 1:1 companioning that is holistic and takes into account your whole creative self. Each session is individual and flows in an organic process that is emergent. You don't need to be an artist just have a desire to explore the creative process with whatever is present for you in your life. These sessions help you reframe how you want to be in the world. 

What I offer as the Companion is...

  • gentle presence

  • deep listening

  • non-judgement

  • asking questions 

  • warmth and care

  • empathy

  • playful perspective

  • patience

  • belief in your potential

I feel very fortunate to have experienced your kind, creative, generous quality of presence, your insight and your warmth. I'm excited for the lucky folks who come along to the safe and special space you'll hold.

I always feel honoured and heard with Zeva. She has a way of listening, observing and responding very deeply. Then she plucks out the most meaningful content and highlights it. Zeva's way of working helps me to hear myself. It's always a beautiful experience.

Eva Dell Neel

Zeva creates a kind and safe environment through her art therapy sessions-which facilitate personal insight and development through creative self-expression.

Taryn

Zeva was such a warm and kind support as she guided me through some powerful emotions. The connections she made between my feelings and the artwork i created felt so profound and really helped my healing. Her expertise really shone through in each session as there was always something new to do or explore. She did all of this through Zoom sessions which is amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better art therapy experience.

Hayley

Zeva, I just wanted to pass on my heartfelt thanks for our Creative Companioning session yesterday. Your insightfulness and suggestions to help unblock my 'blocks' were amazing. You have totally left me with some useful tools and ideas to help me move forward with my dreams.
