Dare to Imagine...
Creating new connections in our minds & behaviours.
ABC/BBC NEW TV SERIES SPACE 22
I feel privileged to say that I am the therapist in this six part series - Space 22 - which explores the impact of creativity on our mental wellbeing.
If you ever were curious about the value of what is often called “soft arts” - soft suggesting, “yeah that’s nice” or a sense of, “off you go and play, that will take away your woes and your fears”; or if you’ve ever thought that creativity has no place in healing our mental and emotional issues, that it simply doesn’t make sense that creativity and engaging in creativity would make any difference to thinking and feeling and being better,
maybe you want to watch this program.”

Can creative practice support mental health and well-being?
Watch Noula as she shows beloved Australian professionals just how.
Noula is an Australian psychotherapist, artist and author, and the founding director of the BeCause Movement. Across all her expressions, she is deeply passionate about removing the influence of neglect on human lives.
"I have a sensitivity towards those people who have experienced neglect in their lives. What do I mean by neglect? Any experience where we are feeling less than, not enough, not worthy to be loved, unacceptable for any reason, and what we end up experiencing is being left out, uncared for… in other words neglected.
When we have experienced neglect in our lives, we will find ourselves always striving to be more, to do more, to achieve more, to give more, at the sacrifice to our own wellbeing. And curiously, when we sacrifice our own wellbeing, we are now neglecting ourselves.
Neglect is what I’m here to help others defeat."
Along-side therapy work, Noula uses a range of mediums to open new conversations and perspectives on mental health issues. She is represented by Artereal Gallery, Australia.
“Psychotherapy is an art form to me. It's not
a mechanically applied process, it is human to human, heart to heart, mind to mind, together collaborating, artfully, towards a journey of healing. This isn't Art Therapy
... it is the art of therapy."
