Iven Simonetti RTCc. Counselling, Expressive Art Therapy and alternative forms of therapy such as music, play, and art making to foster positive mental health and self care.

I study the positive effects of play, music and art making on people, what experience do we have physically, emotionally, and how are those experiences related to our personal healing. Playing music in bereavement and palliative setting since approx. two decades taught me that I am able to create a healing space for people transforming emotional pain using art and music.
