Honorata Chorazy-Przybysz - Awakening Your Creativity Facilitator & Blog Writer

Hi, I am a qualified Therapeutic Expressive Arts Practitioner and Integrative Counsellor in training, and I facilitate the Creative Counsellors "Awakening Your Creativity" workshops for members as well as contributing to regular blog articles. I also deliver sessions to Public Health, Mind, community arts organisations and mental health services. I have a passion for the healing power of arts and creativity is my driving force behind therapeutic work, I love working in my visual journals and create sessions that can prove every person has a creative spark that can be awakened. Recently I also started mentoring and training therapeutic professionals wanting to use creativity and visual arts in their work but needing to build their own confidence. This resulted in a ripple effect and seeing how transformational creativity can be. I currently run monthly Zoom workshops called “Creative Awaking” and every month a different art approach/medium is explored. You can find me here:
