Welcome to the Bee True Studio! My name is Danielle Dickson and I am a certified Expressive Arts Therapist and Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC). I deeply believe in the importance of providing a safe therapeutic environment and the intentional space I hold for others is inspired by the beauty, complexity and intimacy found in process based art making experience.
EXPRESSIVE ARTS THERAPY (EXA) encourages the encounter of new learning and opportunities through the use of the arts.
This takes place in a process based and supportive environment, free from judgment, ideas about talent or the meaning of what is discovered. Expressive arts therapy bridges the gap between the conscious and the unconscious mind. When words are not enough, individuals can turn to images and symbols to tell their story. It can bring light to areas of therapy that are blocked, inhibited, and stuck, as well as bringing greater focus to those areas of concern.
VISUAL ART(ist) creating original artwork inspired by the inherent beauty and spirit of the natural world.
My artwork is a personal dialogue that reaches through the chaos and spirit of that spirit. Through both imagery and medium I create dreamscapes, a collection from the journey we call LIFE that speaks to life cycles, evolution, growth, loss, dreams and the passage of time itself.
