Svetlana Bykovec

Art Therapist

BA.,Psychology; Dip. Art Therapy; B.Holistic Counselling; Cert. Advanced Focusing.

Svetlana came to the Art Cabriolet 3 years ago when she volunteered for one of the programs and fell in love with the Art Cabriolet's vision. She is responsible for researching and creating programs with intention of supporting children and adolescents in trauma. As lead art therapist, her goal is to ensure that the art therapy team work with a person-centred philosophy and that each child and adolescent is always at the centre of sessions.

"For me it's all about seeing the individual in front of me and being fully present.  I always want to inspire them to empower themselves in their often powerless situation. No matter what challenges children and adolescents face, there is always a way for expression through creative process."

Svetlana is currently completing her Masters in Creative & Expressive Arts Therapies.
