Press Pause Therapies...


Justine and Nicole have established a small practice together at 11 Morgan Terrace Bardon, Queensland 4065. 

The premises has spaces for individual sessions and for workshops and hopefully a small outside area down the track. 


How the collaboration began:


As colleagues with shared interests in creativity and collaboration , we decided to start developing some creative arts workshops for submission at the 2014 Woodford Folk Festival. Our submission was accepted and we ran three sold out workshops that were the beginning of an exciting collaboration for us. In 2018 we continue to enjoy bringing a skilled and fresh approach to working with images, assemblage and other creative adventures in a workshop setting. 


Although our individual therapeutic practices draw from different training backgrounds, together we share a committment to person centred practice and an appreciation of playfulness and humour in the way we run our premises and our groups. 


On the website contact page you will find a form where you can make contact with us. An information sheet for GPs and participants regarding past workshop details and REBATES can be found here. Any questions you may have are welcomed using the contact page or you can find our details on the info sheet.

Clinical Supervision Groups:

These Groups ran throughout 2018, however due to other workplace commitments but we are taking a 'pause' in 2019. These groups are run at Press Pause or at your workplace by either Justine or Nicole or we run them together for larger groups. The groups are suitable for all mental health professionals. Please contact us for further information or a quote for your workplace. 


Creative Arts workshops:

Taking place at Press Pause, these Saturday 10-1pm workshops are all about a supported exploration of materials and creativity- they are not art lessons nor are they art therapy groups as such, although there is no doubt the process can feel therapeutic. They are a creative and intriguing way to look at issues/concerns/hopes/reflections that are relevant and important to you. We encourage you to book all three sessions for the year if possible as this will allow you a unique opportunity to take time for reflection and meaning making throughout your year.

2019 Dates: TBA


Professional Development WORKSHOPS 

"what is art therapy" 

facilitated by Justine


Art Therapy information sessions and workshops for health professionals, small clinics and mental health teams. 


These workshops have been based on the many enquiries I receive from professionals in the field of health regarding art making and art therapy in clinical practice. These workshops are generally run at your work site.
