How I look after my mental hygiene

I apologize I have not been writing to my blog for a while. Lately I have been occupied with learning graphic arts in addition to my work. Let me introduce to you my work with watercolor monotype that I have been studying under the leadership of a Dutch artist living and working in Helsinki, Marie-José Dings. This course that I have been attending in the Adult Education Centre of the City of Helsinki has been for me a great form of psycho-hygiene. While immersing into the world of colors and shapes, discovering my own creativity, experiencing joyful surprises when work goes well, but also dealing with feelings of disappointment and impatience, when things do not end up as expected, my mind can take a rest from the therapeutic process. I feel that only with a well-rested mind I can give the space and support to clients dealing with heavy emotions arising from their life crisis situations.
