I am Conny Weyrich, founder of Sensemaking Space, a Masters qualified Art Therapist and Coach.
I’m a Coach and Art Therapist, working online and in person.
My work combines a solid grounding in trauma-informed practice and mental wellbeing with the often fast-paced and pragmatic world of business – blending my therapeutic training with my experience in corporate leadership roles. My approach and practice is informed by neuroscience, shaping meaningful work, healing from trauma, integrating emotions, and befriending the nervous system.
This journal is a place where I share research and information that informs my work. I’m writing about navigating life, the tidy and the messy chapters, and how connecting with our curiosity and creativity can help us make progress and find a rhythm to life that sustains us in the long run.
You can find out more about my services, how I work, current workshops (online/ offline) on my website Sensemaking Space.
Thanks for stopping by!
What I believe to be true about creativity:
We are all creative at heart. Sometimes, this gets lost under life’s busyness and learned norms around who or what is creative. But we can re-learn it easily and use our creativity to access our intuition and inner wisdom, to find new ways of self-expression, deepen our self-awareness and also, to have some fun and ways to recharge.
“Are you considering becoming a creative person? Too late, you already are one. To even call somebody “a creative person” is almost laughably redundant; creativity is the hallmark of our species. We have the sense for it; we have the curiosity for it; we have the opposable thumbs for it; we have the rhythm for it; we have the language and the excitement and the innate connection to divinity for it. If you’re alive, you’re a creative person. You and I and everyone you know are descended from tens of thousands of years of makers. Decorators, tinkerers, storytellers, dancers, explorers, fiddlers, drummers, builders, growers, problem-solvers, and embellishers–these are our common ancestors.”― Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
