Rachel Marsden

Art Therapist and Creative Coach

In creative coaching and art therapy, in a non-judgemental environment, we focus on drawing out your innate creativity in order to process past experiences, find inner resources and facilitate change in your life.


As a creative coach and art therapist from Australia, I offer creative tools and strategies that support people in finding their way through life's transitions, disappointments and challenges. The use of image-making in counseling often yields surprising results.

I've lived in Berlin for most of the last ten years and have enjoyed working with hundreds of creative people from over 45 different countries. I'm an English native speaker.

My Approach

Warmth, empathy and open-mindedness are the basis for my practice. I have a gentle and patient enthusiasm for finding the emergent threads of growth and discovery that arise from challenging or disappointing experiences.

I support you in re-connecting with your wisdom, strength, creativity, and inner-vibrancy so you can have a more peaceful, engaged and fulfilling relationship with yourself, others and life itself.

I offer practical and creative tools that support you in implementing change in your life or in making peace with the past.
