At Holistic Psychology, we aim to help you with all things creation,relaxation and fun!

Did you know that creativity improves brain function?

Left brain activity is all the logical stuff and right brain activity is activating your creative spirit. This isn't woo-woo stuff, this is science.

Scientific evidence suggests that CREATIVITY has an impact on brain wave patterns, emotions, the nervous system and can raise your serotonin levels.

Our founder Trudy Vesotsky, has been teaching in the areas of Behavioural Psychology, Business Development and Grant Funding for over 20 years.

When she lost her memory for four years, she took to mindfulness techniques (meditation, journalling, tai chi), creative art, crafts and cooking to fill her time. She believes that these were some of the best therapy exercises ever and soon after went on to run workshops in a range of topics.

Over the years she has taught many Holistic Psychology classes however she has also taught cooking classes (yes she is Greek and loves cooking lol), jewellery making, soy candle making, dry clay trinket making classes, soap making, vision board creation. flower arranging, colour therapy, digital creativity, painting and much more.

So we want to offer activities and workshops in all areas so that we can support you to succeed personally and professionally!

We look forward to connecting with you at one of our face to face or online workshops and in the words of Maya Angelou, "You can't use up creativity, the more you use the more you have".

Come create with us.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Much love

Absolutely loved this workshop, Trudy was very welcoming and whiling to teach during the all session. She prepared some snack, coffee, tea etc and we were feeling like at home with friends. Making the candles was so cool and interesting, I'm so impatient to be able to make my own ones now and I will probably go back for another workshop to get more tips and more fun.
Thank you Trudy

A huge THANK YOU to Trudy for this brilliant workshop. Was such a relaxing treat walking into the beautiful workshop space that Trudy had created for us, felt like being in a day spa. A lovely group of ladies, we had lots of fun and laughs, and enjoyed all the delicious refreshments provided. Trudy kept it simple and easy-to-follow for us first time beginners and we all made BEAUTIFUL candles, melts and tea lights.

The workshop was interactive, great fun, Trudy shared so much valuable information and provided plenty of helpful tips, and the workbook we received has all the information we need in a simple step-by-step process to follow so that we can easily continue making candles ourselves.

Thank you Trudy for this FANTASTIC workshop and for being such a terrific facilitator and teacher. I had so much fun and I thoroughly enjoyed being creative, decorating the candles, and taking home my beautiful creations. I am already very much looking forward to attending your next workshop. :-)
