Alana Stewart of Finding Wellbeing Art Therapy & Counselling

Group size:

Group size limited up to 5 participants (and their support workers) + 1 facilitator 

- Support workers directly assisting participants with art and crafts are also welcome and can attend for free. 


- Located in an Art Therapy studio with lots of paints, pastels, pens, crafts and more.

- All materials provided.

- Please dress in old clothing, disposable plastic sleeveless smocks available. 


There is no requirement to enrol in a set term period, however for best experience a commitment should be made to attend fortnightly for an agreed period of time. This supports participants to not miss out on instructions for different craft projects and have a chance to complete their projects. It also allows group attendees to feel familiar with each other and more comfortable in the group.

Spaces are limited to 4 or 5 group participants.


NDIS and private paying clients accepted. Concession available to those without funding.
