Just to be clear...this isn't a blog post debating the pros and cons of mask wearing. Nope not at all!
I had a realization this week that there may be individuals who might be seeking counselling services, are looking through my website and they may be curious about how I look with and without a mask.
So I thought I would do a quick blog post and share!
I love seeing people's faces, but it's also amazing to see just how expressive our eyes, eyebrows, brows and cheeks can be (any facial part that is not covered by a mask).
Our voices, body posture, hand gestures all add into the many ways that we express ourselves to others. Add in Art Therapy and there is an additional way for self-expression!
So whether you choose to seek in person counselling (mask on) or online counselling (mask off)...you will be met with my smiling eyes!
