About Me

Kirthana is an ANZACATA registered art therapist and an ACA registered counsellor. Her therapeutic stance is deeply embedded in an anti-racist, anti-fatphobic, anti-misogynistic and anti-ableist philosophy. Kirthana takes into consideration all of a person’s intersecting identities and experiences.

When doing art therapy with Kirthana, you don’t need to have experience with art making or be a “good” artist. In fact, you don’t need any experience at all - art therapy is about the process and meaning, not the product. It allows you to explore, use your imagination, use metaphor and symbolism to create a deeper understanding of your experiences.

Kirthana also offers talk-therapy, and she aims to create an affirming, inclusive, culturally-aware and comfortable space for you to express yourself.

To make an appointment, email Kirthana on thinkingincoloursau@gmail.com

Rough Patch operates on unceded Gadigal and Wangal country. We pay our respects to the traditional custodians of this land and their enduring connection to land, sea and spirit.
