About

I like to work collaboratively with clients to establish some therapeutic goals, explore creative expression, address trauma and facilitate growth. There is no prior experience with art making required as it's more about the process than the final image. There is usually a focus on sensory regulation in addition to evidence based practice that incorporates DBT skills and principles. WE are a provider for the NDIS.
DBT informed Art Therapy is ideal for clients over 16 years of age who are ready to live happier and emotionally healthier lives
I'm happy to discuss your needs and current concerns and if art therapy can be useful for you

Bella Insch's Groups

teenage group for girls, non-binary teens

This is a group for high school/collage aged teens in the ACT & surrounding area who wish to advance their social skills in a peer supportive group. The group is open to all non-binary and female identifying teens. Participants are required to sign up and attend each of the 8 weeks sessions (after the initial intake). Group is at the Kingston studio on Wednesdays in terms 2-3. It is ideal for people who struggle to form and maintain friendships or who would benefit from a group where belonging and shared interest is valued. We often make cosplay/anime
