Hi, I’m Leanne

I work as a registered psychologist and a certified art therapist with an interest in the creative healing modalities.  I am here for the orphans, the outcasts, the outsiders, the wounded warriors, all in a multi-dimensional way that creates support, education and safe gathering spaces for those who are living with complex relational trauma.

Being an adoptee with a lived experience of verbal, emotional and physical violence, which continues to impact and exacerbate my life experience, has given me a level of understanding for those who have experienced attachment trauma and complex PTSD with all their life-altering consequences.  There are some impacts of trauma, estrangement and scapegoating that may never be healed and as such, I continue to search out ways we can integrate these experiences into our stories without shame.

At the moment I am an undergraduate of the Queensland College of Art, seeking to enhance my ability to support the creative expression of my own and others’ experiences of living for which words are inadequate.  While conceptualising our complex human experiences in ways that go beyond words.  I also have a lifelong love of words and so I am at work on a memoir, outlining my personal journey through attachment trauma, emotional deprivation, emotional and physical abuse and family estrangement.

I would love for you to come and join me in the Sanctuary. You can also say hi on social media or send me a message via my contact page.
