Testimonials

"What a gorgeous day of painting, dancing, laughing with friends and discovering how art and colour crack you wider open to discover parts of yourself you may not necessarily let out that often. Thank you to a fabulous Art Teacher and Therapist Sarah Dakhili. It was a beautiful day. Your wisdom and skill was greatly appreciated."

"Wow! What a fantastic experience! I really had no idea what to expect, but what I received was a beautifully held space with activities that nurtured my soul and supported me to step out of my comfort zone and bring out my inner artist. Sarah has such a warm and inviting nature and brings years of wisdom and clinical experience which supported me to feel safe to explore my inner world through art. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to take some time out for self care, to lean into their truth or just want to have a fun day exploring the world with colour. Sarah has given me the confidence to just pick up a paint brush and give it a go! Which is a wonderful gift to have received."

I learned things about myself that I didn’t know going into the workshop, which was a great surprise. Thank you once again for a beautiful day."
