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 (in process). 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 enjoys a personal visual arts practice, playing piano, coaching voice and occasionally acting. Catherine enjoys working in one-to-one relationships, and also offers workshops and other collaborations. She recently led 60 participants in a workshop called “Giving Voice” at the 2016 CATA (Canadian Art Therapies Association) Conference in Toronto.
