ABOUT ETC

Expressive Therapy Clinic was founded by Megan Shiell in 2005.  The clinic focuses on delivering DBT Training to health care professionals with emphasis on the standard model of DBT. At ETC we are passionate about the use of Art making alongside the skills of DBT. We believe that adding a non-verbal approach to the verbal learning of DBT Skills enhances the learning for clients. Online 10 session DBT informed skills training program ‘ME’ Managing Emotions endorsed for health care professionals & for clients now available under ‘Training’.

WHAT IS DBT?

A key component of DBT based skills is teaching a client to stay a little longer than before with feeling emotional pain, validating and accepting their experience whilst moving towards changes in behaviours. Clients are shown how to become present with their emotions and learn how to tolerate the distress that may be experienced. DBT teaches clients how to control urges and impulsive behaviour that can harm relationships and effect their quality of life.

 

 

WHAT IS ART THERAPY?

Art Psychotherapy is a form of treatment that uses creative modalities to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well-being. The emphasis is on the process of creating, rather than on the end product. The art of making allows the unconscious mind to produce material that can assist clients in gaining insight into their behaviours, emotions and beliefs in the safe contained environment with an Art Therapist.
