Coessence - Expressive Arts Healing - What I Offer

What happens in a private session?

We begin with a conversation where I invite you to talk about your life, what’s happening for you and what brought you to the session. During this conversation, I’ll be tuning into your energy, your words, your body cues, and reflecting back to you what I see, hear, sense and intuit. We’ll let the conversation go where it needs to go for a while so that we can get to know each other and form a safe relationship in which to trust and share the rest of the session.

I will then guide you into a body-centred and/or expressive process that resonates with you, and this may include: conscious movement, breath work, creating a ritual, drawing, drumming, guided visualisation, making a sacred object, dream work, oracle cards, sound healing, nature immersion, or a combination of any of these. This is a creative and intuitive process that unfolds as we work together, and one that will be unique to you for your session.

The session will end with an integration time that may include meditation, journal writing, drawing, talking or setting some intentions for you to take home.

Individual sessions are held in my studio or somewhere out in nature – in the forest, at the beach, by a river. An outdoor session offers a perfect opportunity to slow down and connect with the healing power of nature. You get to choose.

I aim to offer a service that is affordable, so I request my fees according to a sliding scale of $120 - $180 per session (usually around 2 hours). I'm happy to negotiate a fee you can afford that also values my time, skills and experience.
To book an individual session or ask any questions you may have, please don't hesitate to contact me and I'll be happy to hear from you.

Support for Your Healing & Transformation:


If you’ve already made a commitment to your own healing, or you're on the verge of making it, then you’ll probably be reading this because you know you need support. You've realised that you can't or don't want to do it all alone. We all need support; it’s part of being human – giving and receiving support. In reaching out for support, you're making a giant leap that will take your healing and transformation to a deeper place for you.
Coessence - Support for your healing & transformation
Coessence - Something for yourself


I work with women who have recognised that they need to do ‘something' for themselves, even if they're not sure what 'it' is. I love working with women who are listening to the call of their inner voice, even if it's only a faint whisper or it feels like the scariest thing they've ever done.


The space that I provide is nurturing, safe and sacred. You are the expert on you. I don't give advice and I don't promise to heal you, but I will walk steadily alongside you as you take your own journey of healing and transformation. 
Coessence -  A safe and sacred place
Making a commitment to your own healing and transformation takes courage and persistence. I know from personal experience, it's a commitment I continue to make every day of my life. Over the past 26 years, I have committed a great deal of time, effort and resources to my own healing and spiritual life, and I know it's the best investment I’ve ever made. The ripple effect, within my family and out into the broader communities that I'm part of, is both visible and tangible. When I see the benefits reflected back to me, I’m encouraged to keep going no matter what.

What participants have said:

"Sometimes in life it takes a while to build up the courage to walk down a path. For me, it was the courage to finally start taking care of myself again and putting my wellbeing first. When I first heard of Anne-Marie through a trusted friend, it equally took me months to take the leap and contact her. I remember our first phone call, when words couldn't really express how I was feeling, the depth of what I was going through. But Anne-Marie instantly put me at ease, and I knew she was someone I could trust. That leap of faith was affirmed when I first met her in person - she was there to catch me. I felt instant comfort and safety - that is one of Anne-Marie's greatest gifts. She deeply respects you and honours you, no matter what you say, feel or are going through. 

She is there to catch you when you fall. And we do fall in this work. It is inevitable. That first meeting my walls fell for the first time in years. To be able to feel so vulnerable in front of a stranger speaks volumes to their character and integrity. Although I have known Anne-Marie for only a few months I feel I have known her for years. When we have our sessions I feel I am returning home, to a long lost mother or sister. I can honestly say I have had some of the most profound spiritual experiences with Anne-Marie and I trust her implicitly. 

She is the real deal. I encourage anyone to take this leap of faith with Anne-Marie if they are truly dedicated and have the courage to look inside, or just need someone to hold them through whatever they are going through." ~ Belle ~
"I have known Anne-Marie in both a group setting while she facilitated Chakradance and one-on-one while undertaking individual sessions. Anne-Marie's warm, grounded and generous energy permeates every interaction you will have with her. Her authenticity and capacity to facilitate a sacred and safe space allowed me to work through layers of trauma in ways that has forever changed my life. Working both intuitively, and with years of experience in body work I couldn't more strongly recommend starting a journey with Anne-Marie through Coessence" ~ Jaimie ~
"Anne-Marie is an extremely skilled experiential therapist, she works with integrity and care. Anne-Marie is skilled in creating therapeutic safety and sacred space." ~ Madeleine ~
We are all born with the inherent ability to heal, to love, to be loved and to transform... this is our 'coessence'.  As social beings, we often need someone, or even a community of others, to walk alongside us on the journey.


Mother Nature provides everything we need to live a healthy, balanced and beautiful life. Her sacred presence is alive within us, supporting us in every moment, guiding us towards natural healing and transformation. All we need to do is listen deeply, read Her signs and take responsible action for ourselves and for our Earth.
