Shelley Tansley

Transpersonal Art Therapist & Shamanic Practitioner

I am a transpersonal art therapist and a shamanic practitioner with experience in groupwork facilitation, one-on-one therapy sessions, expressive art workshops and shamanic healing. 

When you start working with me you will experience an integrative and holistic approach which is informed by my background in visual arts and spiritual practice.

My philosophy prioritises the heart’s quest for truth and fulfillment, appreciating the importance of creating a safe and inclusive space for you to explore shamanic and creative techniques.

I am committed to a path of spiritual connection and healing with the intent to guide you as you explore your creative expression and deepen your understanding of who you are. 

I look forward to guiding you on your healing path.

 Within the healing space you will:

  • Unleash your creativity 

  • Discover unknown aspects of yourself

  • Be guided as you integrate traumatic events 

  • Find meaning and purpose

  • Honour grief and loss

  • Gain coping skills

  • Navigate spiritual crisis

  • Find new ways to live your life with joy.
