Renae Swann

PSYCHOLOGIST

“What you’re doing is not important. What is really important is the state of mind from which you do it.”

– MARINA ABRAMOVIC

Renae believes psychology isn’t just about mental illness and things being “wrong”, it’s about being inquisitive and curious about ourselves and the people who surround us. Renae attended an art exhibition by Marina Abramović several years ago, where she was able to gaze in silence into the eyes of complete strangers. This experience helped her to understand the power of silence, the profound relationships that can be built beyond words and the importance of vulnerability. Renae loves working with people who have a strong desire to question and understand themselves in their own unique ways.

Renae likes to use therapeutic styles/methods such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Art-based therapies – all within a trauma-informed lens. These styles allow for maximum creativity and a focus on strengths to empower individuals and build on skills that are in line with their life values.

Outside the therapy room

“Writing poetry, reading a book about death/dying or watering my (many) plants.”
