About Me-Alison Lacy

My passion to create began as a curious and inquisitive child and reemerged when life became challenging in my late teens. My discovery of pottery classes uncovered an exciting new world of imagination and creativity which guided me on a journey both personally and professionally.  This passion gave me the confidence and direction to study Visual Arts and work as a Studio Potter.  After successfully obtaining Government grants, I facilitated Creative Clay Workshops and shared my passion with over sixty schools and community groups, traveling into remote communities throughout the NT, NSW, and Qld.  I later relocated to Alice Springs to work alongside Anangu Youth Workers and Community Elders in four indigenous communities of Apatula, Mutitjulu, Imanpa, and Kaltukatjar, to assist with re-engaging young people through Arts-based and cultural programs.  

My personal discovery and the constant witnessing of the incredible therapeutic qualities of the creative arts provided me with the desire to gain further knowledge and qualifications to complete a Bachelor of Arts Psychotherapy.  Working within the Community Service Sector and Arts-based programs for the previous 25 years, I have engaged with clients of varying challenges, both physically and psychologically.  This has allowed me the privilege of working with Children and Foster Carers in Out of Home Care (COHC), Detention Centres, Partners in Recovery, Drug, and Alcohol rehabilitation centers, and Women's Shelters.
