Group therapy — Creative Recovery through the Artist’s Way

Psychotherapy and Therapeutic Art Group with Tammi Zine, LPC

This group will focus on how to deal with creative and/or mental blocks and be inspired. Get ready to unleash the artist or maker within. We get bogged down with busyness in our lives, and creative endeavors, along with pleasure, take a backseat. Lack of creativity and pleasure can lead to depression, anxiety, and mental burnout.

We will use “The Artist’s Way,” a book written by Julia Cameron, to assist us in this incredibly powerful 12-week journey that will propel us toward creative recovery.  Within the powerful group dynamic we immerse ourselves in the flow of creative work, resulting in projects, collaborations and deep connections.  Together, we dive into artistic dates and set goals in a supportive environment.  In addition to the incredible support participants receive in the groups, we gain a sense of accountability, self-acceptance and accomplishment. We come as we are and we process in our own creative way. Guest speakers who have made creative work their life’s practice will also be invited. Begins Tuesday, Sept. 10, from 6-8:30 p.m.

Please contact us at (608)-244-4859 to learn more. You can also email Tammi at tammi@insightmadison.com.

I absolutely LOVED Tammi Zine’s art therapy group! It was incredibly inspiring. It really made something come alive inside of me! The safety that we created in our group that was guided by Tammi was absolutely remarkable. The openness and honesty that we shared allowed me to truly open up my creative process which was incredibly healing. I’m even considering starting a new career in art therapy as a result of how alive the group made me feel! Absolutely INCREDIBLE to sum it up… I feel truly blessed to have art and the creative process back in my life as a result of this class. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

  • Dance/movement therapist is adapted for all ages, sexes and mental and physical abilities.
  • No dance experience necessary.

Somatic Expressive Therapy

Somatic expressive therapy (SET) recognizes the body as fundamental to healing. SET uses the expressive arts — including movement, writing and drawing — to help clients better understand their healing process.

What to expect

A combination of the following tailored to each individual: Stretching, Yoga, Qigong, dance, drawing, writing, relaxation exercises, mindfulness exercises, body-awareness exercises, and visualization.

SET can help in many ways including increased relaxation, motivation and insight; lower stress, depression and anxiety symptoms; and it can encourage emotional regulation.
