We all face challenges that can overwhelm us. Maggie Date Art Therapy has a range of options aimed at helping you to get back in touch with your felt senses. Unless stated otherwise, all services are located in Reservoir.

Individual sessions

I will work with you on a one-on-one basis for as long as you need. Together we will decide on the art modality to use and that can change from visit to visit. Sessions are private and confidential. Individual sessions are available for adults, adolescents and children.


Group sessions

Group sessions provide the benefits of being in community, learning that we are not alone, that others to have issues and concerns too. As a group, we can support each other, be witness to another’s challenges and growth as they are witness to ours.  Group can be a place where we come together for a while and explore, share, create, rest, laugh, or cry if we need to. A variety of art materials and processes will support the exploration. 2hrs gives time to arrive and settle in, relax, have an art process or two and share a little.

Group session is 2hrs weekly for 8 weeks, Max 6 participants.




Workshops are a great way to immerse your self in an art-making process.


Lasting for three hours, each workshop has a particular theme and a focus on strengths and personal resources.
