Creativity


Creativity. art stone



I’d like to say something about creativity.

I believe that creativity is vital to a fulfilled life. I don’t just mean being about to paint or sculpt something – it’s more about being personally expressive in what ever way is important to us, and about being innovative at work in order to meet our business needs.

I use creativity in my work as much as possible.

In doing therapy or counselling I might ask the client to do something that feels odd yet helpful, like talking to a person who isn’t there, imagining a situation they either dread or desperately want, or even opening negotiations with a part of themselves they don’t usually acknowledge. Some clients prefer to draw an image than talk about – and drawing itself can be very therapeutic. Others will rather just talk and that’s fine too.

In my personal life I like to keep my creativity flowing by creating things –in the past I’ve painted, made pottery and jewellery, rugs, tapestries etc. Lately I’ve begun experimenting with textiles.
