Here is some feedback from previous clients and creative workshop participants. This is what people are saying about their individual counselling and experience of a creative workshop.
Loved the experience, creativity and meditation. Enjoyed the freedom to express my thoughts.
I did not know what to expect. I found the workshop a safe place in which to express my ‘creativity’ with art materials.
It was wonderful attending Chinar’s workshop. All worries just melted away as I became engrossed in painting, unleashing the creativity within me and being with like-minded people.
Chinar is an amazing counsellor who listens and understands a client. She helped me a lot to become aware of myself, to become more positive and less harsh on myself. The work we’ve done in the last 8 weeks included art which fulfilled my creative side. I would always strongly recommend her services (especially for artists!) Thank you for your help!
Chinar has been very helpful and attentive during our sessions. I am very grateful for her attention, support and understanding. She’s been able to create a safe environment where I could explore my feelings and she offered techniques to help me deal with challenging emotions.
My time with Chinar was a very positive experience. She helped me work through my challenges and achieve my objectives.
A fantastic way to spend an afternoon – therapeutic and fun!
As the previous workshop, this was fun, relaxing and very therapeutic. Loved every moment of it.
I wasn’t sure how this day was going to go, but wow it has opened up my mind and heart so much. I feel reflective, relieved and safe. I’d definitely do it and recommend it.
I am left feeling your gentleness – it’s a nice feeling to be leaving with.
Chinar has helped me find space to work through the difficult challenges that a death of a loved one brings. She provided a safe space for me to explore my emotions and allow me to find my way to a clearer sense of being.
Thank you for the gentle, kind way you gradually helped me begin to open up and explore things I find difficult. You gave me the space to talk as much as I needed but without leaving awkward silences. You were engaged and interested and I can see a difference after the sessions.
It’s been enlightening, open and non-judgmental. A wonderful place to untangle thoughts and feelings.
In one word: Enlightening.
a) A discovery of self, flowers and a different perspective.
b) A release of emotion and joy.
I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Chinar has a wonderful gentle yet insightful approach as a therapist. Time just flew by!
I enjoyed the decoupage.
I just really enjoyed the evening it really helped me relax.
Brilliant time to explore and reconnect with my creative side.
I was quite nervous about the workshop as I believe I was not very creative, but now looking forward to more workshops.
Flowers Within’ is a fun and interesting workshop that facilitates painting, working with art materials to express thoughts and feelings from the mundane to the deeply felt. The process is gentle, exploratory, sensitive enabling participants to express whatever feels good at the time. It allows room for reflection, learning and you leave feeling elevated and joyful.
Easy to learn. Good project. I liked it.
Thank you for the experience.
I have been on several of Chinar’s Creative Art workshops and each one has led me into a more profound understanding of how I view things. Dare I say it, I have much more of an understanding of myself and what is residing in my subconscious, which is responsible for a lot of our behaviour. This awareness is leading me more and more to a much better improvement in mental well-being. Sometimes the insights and discoveries are like plunging into a refreshing blue pool!’ It is creative and fun.
A great experience, really helpful and an opener to my own life experience right now.
I felt relaxed, safe and at ease talking about what is troubling me.
I left the room feeling the lightest I have felt in a really long time.
Thanks for the enjoyable evening.
I quite enjoyed it. Might do it again sometime.
A very enjoyable evening.
A very interesting workshop & it brought up more than I anticipated.
I enjoyed the open discussion about our relationship with money & the safe environment to explore what came up.’
I enjoyed the opportunity to answer questions from the counsellor about my art and what it might mean.
Thanks for your support.
Thanks for all your hard work.
I liked the large array of materials to use and the supportive, empathic environment which Chinar created.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Gradual unfolding of inner stuff – fascinating!
