Bronwen Winterburn, At a Glance

Bronwen Winterburn began her journey as an accomplished visual exhibiting artist, and as an exhibiting metal designer and member of the Wild Anvils. She was then drawn to the psychology of art, and studied as an art therapist within a group therapy format. Ms. Winterburn went on to provide art therapy programs for the wider community, individually and in groups. Today, she draws on her knowledge and past industry experience to successfully run her own private practice.

Aside from the duties at her practice, Ms. Winterburn also serves as a lecturer and trainer of advanced diploma art therapy at the Ikon International Institute. Through her work, she enjoys seeing how art in therapy can reach clients who are emotionally difficult to engage, such as those with disabilities, eating disorders, and borderline personality disorder. To witness empowerment through creativity, play and rich learning through personal symbolic story telling is profoundly moving and inspiring.

Ms. Winterburn opened her art therapy practice in 2003, and worked as a provisional psychologist for Disability SA in 2012 where she gained further experience in forensic report writing, complex case work and dual diagnosis. She also gained experience volunteering as a lifeline telephone crisis counselor and working with children experiencing trauma and learning disabilities in school settings.

Ms. Winterburn earned a master's degree in clinical psychology at the University of South Australia, a bachelor's degree in psychology, Bachelor of Fine Arts, and advanced diploma in art therapy. She also holds a certificate IV in workplace training and assessment. Ms. Winterburn keeps abreast of changes in her field through her affiliation with the Australian Psychological Society and Australian Creative Arts Therapies Association.

Outside of her professional endeavors, Ms. Winterburn enjoys painting with oils, sculpting, meditating, and studying mythology. She also volunteers to supervise art therapists.
