Lynsey is a counsellor, Art Therapist, neurodiversity advocate, and a VIT and TRWBA registered teacher, with UK special needs training recognised by AITSL. She has a specialist interest in women’s health and is passionate about supporting women experiencing infertility.
She completed her certificate in Arts Therapies Foundation with Hertfordshire University in the UK and a postgraduate diploma in Therapeutic Art practices through The Miecat institute in Melbourne, Australia. After a short break to have her first child in the first lockdown of 2020, Lynsey has returned to her studies to complete her Masters in Therapeutic Arts Practices through her work with Warwick Psychological Services.
Lynsey works with children and adults, including NDIS participants. She has experience in the lesser-known expressions of female autism and female ADHD.
She is available to work with individuals and groups. Open to schools for workshops, group work, and professional development. Lynsey also offers a short half-hour session known as ‘Art Play’ where individuals can utilise a number of art materials and tools in a casual or play-based way. She was inspired to offer this after listening to an autistic mother talk about how she wanted to play with her ADHD daughter but struggled to know what to do. If this sounds like you, you can come in with your child and let Lynsey help you do something fun and creative together. Otherwise, ‘Art Play’ can be used as a precursor to an entire art therapy session – where clients can find out if they enjoy art-making as a therapeutic tool.
