Art Therapy & Meditation in Sydney
Welcome to Art Therapy with Kimberly
“There is no greater honour or privilege than facilitating the process of healing for someone, to bear witness, to reach out a hand, to share the burden of someone’s suffering, and to hold the hope for their recovery.”
– Dr. Eleanor Longden
My name is Kimberly Hetherington and I’m a trained and certified transpersonal art therapist and meditation teacher. I’ve worked in hospitals, corporate settings, and community centres with people from all walks of life. I focus mainly on areas of self-development, grief, and anxiety.
I’m passionate about developing connected programs and one on one sessions that ignite the imagination, awaken the spirit, and increase feelings of belonging.

How can Transpersonal Art Therapy help me?
Transpersonal art therapy integrates a holistic model of care that recognises the importance of relational, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of a person. Benefits include:
- Increased self-awareness
- Improved creativity
- Increased sense of self-esteem and confidence
- Improved interpersonal skills
- Enhanced mind-body connection
- Development of life-long coping skills
- Identification of personal resources and needs
- Increased sense of meaning and purpose
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Reduced feelings of depression
Studies also show that creating art stimulates the release of dopamine. This chemical is released when we do something pleasurable and makes us feel happier. Increased levels of this feel-good neurotransmitter can be very helpful if you are battling anxiety or depression. You don’t need to be an artist to benefit either – everyone is welcome as they are.
Group Art Therapy
You can find all upcoming group therapy workshops on Eventbrite. Workshops focus on a range of different themes and involve creative prompts, meditation, and group sharing. The intention behind these groups is to facilitate healing, encourage a sense of community and develop genuine connection with others.
