Work with clients can include using a wide variety of art materials, postcards, Native American Medicine cards, soft toys, Emotional Literacy cards, stones, shells, models, art materials, Blob Trees etc. I invite clients to choose a stone or postcard for example to represent themselves or how they're feeling in some way. We then examine together what has been selected.
Native American Medicine Cards
I work with these cards symbolically, in much the same way that I use other creative techniques.
I invite you to select a number of cards that represent aspects of the self in some way. Sometimes a card has a strong pull but you may not quite know why. Cards can also be selected for particular emotions or a dependency for example.
These cards can be quite powerful in conjunction with our other work, tapping into the unconscious. They often bring another dimension to our work and enable more connections and a deeper exploration. I find that many clients really enjoy working with the creative materials.
