Catherine Marrion is an Expressive Arts Therapist in private practice. Following her training at CREATE Institute (formerly ISIS Canada), she undertook a Masters in Expressive Arts Therapy through the European Graduate School (pending). Embodiment through all the art forms is a strong value in Catherine’s work, which is well supported by her background in Somatic Movement Therapy and extensive theatre experience, as an actor, coach and on the faculty of the Theatre Performance Program at Humber College, where she taught voice and movement for actors. She is comfortably multi-modal and her personal arts practice includes somatic work, visual arts, writing and music. Catherine enjoys working in one-to-one relationships, both in expressive arts and coaching for actors. She also offers workshops and other collaborations. In 2017 Catherine facilitated a”Giving Voice” workshops at the IEATA Conference in Winnipeg and led a similar workshop at the 2016 CATA (Canadian Art Therapies Association) Conference in Toronto.
