Art Therapy and the NDIS
As an approved NDIS provider, Mindkshetra offers both individual appointments and group sessions of art therapy for NDIS participants.
Based in Western Sydney, Mindkshetra is a creative wellness studio that offers art therapy, counselling services and art therapy for NDIS participants. We work with a range of clients, with a minimum age of eight and above.
The primary interest group of Mindkshetra clients are young people (inclusive of all gender). Though predominantly, this service is catered to children (8yrs - 18) for individual consultations, we support adult NDIS participants on a case-to-case basis. We also run various support groups for adults.
As Rupa is ANZACATA registered practitioner, she also has access to and collaborates with several NDIS-approved Art therapists within Greater Sydney Area and will be happy to provide referrals to Creative Arts therapists in an area of your choice.
How NDIS Works with Art Therapy
Mindkshetra accepts self-referrals, and referrals from General Practitioners, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, NDIS plan managers, NDIS coordinators, Art Therapists and other Allied Health Professionals within Greater Sydney Area to provide art therapy for NDIS clients.
Mindkshetra is based on the philosophy that everyone is unique and can author their life stories through self-awareness. The Practice also believes that every individual is innately creative; however, navigating the trenches of life may have lost a connection with their inner wisdom.
The approach is to create a therapeutic space where the clients feel safe and supported to tap into their inner creativity by engaging in self-expression. Rupa, the founder of Mindkshetra, is an Australia New Zealand Asia Creative Therapies Association (ANZACATA) Registered Art Therapist & Australian Counselling Association (ACA) Registered Counsellor. Rupa walks empathetically alongside the client on this journey of self-exploration, with the client in the driver's seat. Together we use your imagination to explore how to re-establish your mind-body connection and set you on the path to nurturing your well-being.
