Yesterday, I had a chance to catch up with Georgia Fullerton for Episode 3 of my Adventures with Kerri podcast. Georgia is a practising visual artist, an expressive arts therapist, arts educator and public speaker.
Together we explored our deeply personal connection to art, art therapy, and how expressive arts therapy can be used as a tool for mental health support and how tapping into your own "Art Story" can help to re-frame our lives.
We also talked about learning to feel "comfortable in discomfort" and how open expression of oneself leads to personal freedom.
I hope you enjoy this week's episode!
