Expressive Arts Focusing (EAF) is a trauma-informed approach in the field of Expressive Arts Therapy crossing:


I found in my own practice:

Expressing the body sense into arts is offering a more of .... something that (re)connects to life


Bilateral Body Mapping

(Guided Drawing®) releases trauma and intensive  feelings of pain, anger and fear


Illustrating dreams is offering  insights you cannot find by writing down the dream's message


Painting portraits from the body sense has healing potential by the artistic expression itself


Experiential Collaging and Embodied Doodling create new meaning and a More of at the Edge


Drawing a plant or a landscape from the body sense helps to calm down and dwell within nature


Cosmic Smash Booking and abstract painting  allow to express unclear moods and emotions and find out about new intuitions through the body sense

Your webinar has done me an awful lot of good. I haven't felt as comfortable, free and light hearted for ages as I do now after the course. I just wanted to tell you that, and thank you very much



So honestly presented - thank you very much for this beneficial, strengthening offer

Despite the online distance

(and this is quite amazing for me) I felt very comfortable and safe. Your empathic, clear and soothing instructions and exercises have done me a lot of good



The exercises were really good for me. I am now in focus. Thank you!

Anna, coach


After the webinar I worked on my picture a few more times ... playing with it, discovering more. Everything I found was so valuable. Thanks again for the afternoon!

Gertrud, pediatric therapist


It is so exciting to see how you are bringing something to life that you feel exactly is on at this very moment and thereby accompany other people

Gaby, teacher


The workshop opened up new spaces I had never created before. I painted new outlooks and found new possibilities. My stress did go away and the mood improved - thank you!

Elena, psychologist


I was surprised that focusing helped me to focus on my inner sensation, to reveal the discomfort in my body and that the body itself knows and answers my request. And third, I was surprised that the answer was on the surface. It was like I didn't want to notice it and drove it out of my awareness. Now I feel connected. Thank you

Lisa, student

Join me in my workshops! I love to hear from you!
