Word on the Street
I’ve facilitated workshops for a lot of clients, but I never had as much of a satisfying experience as with Su Mei’s “Food 4 Mood”: Not only is she an extraordinarily good listener who always does her best to meet everyone’s needs, but her attention to details is absolutely phenomenal: no stone was left unturned prior to the workshop delivery. Su Mei did a fabulous job at asking all the questions and considering all eventualities, which I have the upmost respect for and guaranteed we had a spectacular event! I could also clearly see her deep care for her clients and her dedication to giving them the best experience possible, which made achieving those high standards even sweeter... Thank you Su Mei for creating such a beautiful environment for everyone to flourish and thrive! Thanks for all your creative ideas that added so much to the event! It was a deep pleasure to work with you and I can’t wait for another opportunity to co-create!
I really enjoy the different art experiences given. I even get to choose which ones I would like to participate in. At first for me socialising with others was difficult, however I remind myself that we all need self care and self awareness. It is great to know that others feel the same as myself.
The best part of each session is learning that little previously unknown or rejected or blocked part of yourself that adds more acceptance and love and understanding of yourself...like each sip of freshly brewed tea to a moment of peace and tranquility!
Art Therapy has been a great way for me to understand and express my emotions without words. Sometimes you just don't have words to explain how you feel.By being creative, it has helped me connect with my inner self. Su Mei is one of the kindest therapist I have ever met. She has helped me accept myself and for that I will forever be grateful. <3
In the beginning, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from an art therapy session, but I know I am in a much better place after it.
Su Mei helps bring to the surface things that perhaps you have realised, but had no idea how to or that you even needed to confront. She does so in such a non-invasive manner that you don’t even realise it.
For those like me who have been skeptical about therapy, or don’t feel comfortable opening up via conventional means of therapy.. this is definitely the way to go, and Art Tearapy is where it’s at.
