Well Creative Minds gave me an opening to flourish ~ Marc
Well Creative Minds has been the pinnacle step in my own (mind illness dilemmas). I as an individual have blossomed. I have found that having a stable rapport with a particular person, as apposed to just variable workers from an agency has allowed my ability to settle.This further enhanced my ability to connect, ‘Anxiety” is a predominant factor in my disability. Well Creative Minds” offerred an opening with which I could choose to flourish, into deeper independence and confidence. Sharing my discoveries into community once more. I have gained tremendously with Tess and her “Well Creative Minds”, and continue to feel the sense of hope, which has returned to my life can stay. This, along with and within her continuing support through “Well Creative Minds” brings my future into a better light.. Thank you. Sincerely Marc.

About the founder & director
I was working as a sole provider for a few years while studying psychology before choosing to take a step back to continue my journey towards becoming a psychologist. Now I get to work alongside an incredible team of passionate and amazing humans, add to my tool belt and help more people!
But my journey into health and wellness, started long before that! I have written and blogged about some of my experiences (including my own battle with mental health) over the years (lot’s of evolving and growing since ha!). And when I get the opportunity to do so, I still love to write! …
To me, being creative is the ability to cope with life’s uncertainties, and navigate adversity with courage and resilience. I’m a creative by nature, who lives near the beach, loves dogs (yes I have to stop and pat them all), enjoys exploring waterfalls and being surrounded by nature.
