SAY YES! TO CHANGES

Art-based consulting and facilitation. Find your true voice using intermodal expressive arts. Say yes to changes with Joanna Wróblewska, visual artist and art-based consultant/facilitator.

FIND YOUR TRUE VOICE

> What matters to me the most is to empower people of various cultures and origins by encouraging them to find their true voice using the arts.

As an active visual artist and Expressive Arts specialist, I deeply believe that art is indigenous to humans. The ability to make art is something that we all share.

> My mission is to support personal and organizational growth, promote healthy self-expression, and cultivate a deep cross-cultural connection between people.

SAY YES! TO CHANGES WITH DEEP ART-BASED WORK

Invite little miracles into your life. Discover hidden treasures of your personal resources. Make a smoother transition.

> Deep art-based work supports personal growth through creative learning. It can become a meaningful addition to your psychotherapy, self-development, or a group process at your organization.

Through Expressive Arts, you can explore your identity, connect with yourself and others, create more awareness, integrate existing knowledge with new findings, find a place of belonging, and welcome change with more ease.

It is all about how you shape your story.

ART-BASED SESSIONS (offline and online)

Currently, I offer stationary and online support in the form of individual experiential sessions, group workshops, and community activities. In my art-based work, I mainly use Expressive Arts Therapy methods.

*Expressive Arts (EXA) is a process- and resource-oriented therapeutic method using various forms of artistic expression. Often multiple art genres are included in a session or a workshop, which makes this deep art-based work truly intermodal. The instructions for particular activities are easy and playful. However, they have a high emotional impact (“low skill – high sensitivity”). It is an innovative arts-based method that is considered very gentle and effective at the same time.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • If you are a new client, we will start our together work from a 30 min. long online meeting to speak about your needs and expectations.
  • In a session, we will first do a fill-in and speak about your current longings. Then, I will propose a warm-up to wake up your senses and let you enter the session with more awareness. In the next phase, we will create art and that can include various forms of expression like clay work, painting, movement, or writing.
  • Finally, we will reflect together on the entire process and find out what emerged for you during the session.
  • It might happen that I will propose homework to be accomplished before our next meeting.
  • Each session and workshop is different. The final shape of a session depends on your needs and the resonance between us!
  • In group sessions and workshops, the process is structured in a similar way. However, it might differ a bit depending on the setup.
  • You will be informed in advance about the location, software, and art materials required for any of my sessions and workshops.

My Expressive Arts work is supervised by a licensed Expressive Arts Therapist. I guarantee the highest level of safety and confidentiality to all my clients.

I am bilingual in Polish and English. I also speak German on a B2 level and have the capacity to communicate with Spanish speaking clients.
