Marlize van der Merwe
Marlize is our Art Counsellor and has been working in the field of addiction for over five years. After having personally experienced the healing properties of expressive art she decided to study Art Therapy as an alternative to narrative therapy.
She is passionate about using art as a therapeutic medium for people to connect and express themselves. Art therapy requires no previous experience and can include painting, drawing, clay and mosaic work.
She believes recovery, rejuvenation and self-care are achievable for anyone who commits to the decision of sobriety by applying the tools and knowledge acquired during her creative sessions.
Art therapy is but a little piece of the puzzle of Recovery you will experience at WRM.
