Psychologist Sydney CBD, Art Therapy

Maja provides evidence-based therapy using a range of therapy styles, predominantly Mindfulness based strategies, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). As she is also a Registered Art Therapist Maja brings an inspiring, creative edge to her sessions, and so may utilise the transformative and healing qualities of creativity as part of the therapy process.

Personally experiencing the benefits of a creative practice she firmly believes we all have the capacity to engage in some form of creativity….no artistic ability required!

Senior Psychologist Maja’s tip for dealing with anxiety

“Anxiety is a normal part of the human experience. When you notice some uncomfortable feelings, try to take a moment to check in with yourself.

Ask, “What am I feeling? What’s going through my mind right now?” Noticing in this way allows for an opportunity to take a step away from the experience and remind yourself that thoughts are just thoughts, not facts.

Include some mindfulness in your daily life. This can be as simple as paying deliberate attention to how that morning cup of tea tastes, or really listening to the lyrics of your favourite songs. Or take try a meditation course or yoga classes.

Checking in with yourself as you go through your day helps cultivate mindfulness, which then grows your ability to observe rather than react to your thoughts and feelings.”

Outside the Therapy Room…

“You can find me making art and wandering around art galleries like White Rabbit in Chippendale, taking in inspiration. I love a dip in the ocean, hanging with family and friends, checking out live music and I am currently trying to master the headstand in yoga class.”
