Hi, I am Kerstin von Shearing, arts therapist, workplace wellbeing specialist and facilitator of Creative Gems Wellbeing and The Creative Wellbeing Experience. I have worked with children and adults for over 20 years within child care, performing arts, arts therapy, retail, hospitality and education.
First gaining a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Drama and Creative Writing, I followed on to qualify as a teacher and arts therapist back in 2008 graduating with a Graduate Diploma in Primary Education, from Latrobe University and a Graduate Diploma in Experiential Creative Arts Therapy, from the Melbourne Institute of Experiential Creative Arts Therapy (M.I. E.C.A.T.) respectively.
I enjoy travelling, swimming, Yoga and all the arts, in particular a new Jazz inspired band that I am lead singer of.
A proud moment in my creative career was to have an article published and paid for, in The Irish Independent Newspaper, a 2 page colour spread, with my thoughts and interviews of other travelling colleagues about Ireland and its people.
In 2009 I had my first child and our second child arrived in 2012. Balancing work, life and motherhood has been an interesting challenge and I appreciate watching our children grow into their own special and unique personalities.
My passion is facilitating the freedom and space to explore creative self-expression within all the Arts Modalities: painting, drawing, sculpting, writing, singing, drama and movement.
There is something magical about facilitating a space and watching people gain insights into themselves and discover new realms of thinking.
Making you feel comfortable in a group setting, is also what I offer, alongside my new venture, The Creative Wellbeing Experience, supporting workplaces, teams in wellbeing and team co-hesion.
