Dr Lily Taylor
BOOK APPOINTMENT

Dr Lily (Elisabeth) Taylor

PhD; MSc; MCouns; Adv. Dipl. (Transpersonal Art Therapy); Exec. Cert. (Positive Psychology Coaching); Cert. (Women-Centred Coaching), Certificate in Adult Education (Communication Coaching);

COUNSELLOR, ART THERAPIST & LIFE COACH

Dr Lily Taylor was born in Austria where she trained as a secondary science teacher and communication coach before migrating to Australia where she has been working as an academic in teacher education in university settings for the past 16 years. Since 2012, she has completed additional trainings as counsellor, coach and creative art therapist and has been active and registered in these areas since 2013. Lily is a registered counsellor with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA, Membership Level MACA3), a registered creative art therapist with Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA) (Tier Membership Level) and a life coach registered with Australia and New Zealand Coaching Alliance (ANZAL) (Professional Level – pending). She is also an ACA-trained counselling supervisor. She speaks English and German fluently.

Lily has experience working with individuals and couples as a frontline counsellor (Anglicare), couple counsellor and pre-marriage educator (CMFS) and in private practice.
She offers services in counselling, art therapy and life coaching. These three modalities are different in their outlook and practical application:

COUNSELLING APPROACH

Counselling aims at re-establishing a sense of mental wellbeing. Clients who seek counselling wish to regain balance and wellbeing during or after experiencing challenges in their lives. While the focus of counselling is on the here and now, the past may be explored as needed.

Lily practises a person-centred, integrative approach to counselling in which deep, empathic listening helps create a safe environment for exploring issues and creates a strong therapeutic relationship. She draws on and combines several additional counselling modalities appropriate for the client’s situation and challenges. Lily supports clients in expanding existing strengths and skills thus empowering them to make the changes they would like to make in their lives. ‘Holding space’ for clients in a caring, non-judgmental and compassionate way is, in Lily’s view, one of the most crucial aspects of her role as a counsellor and therapist. She creates a warm and welcoming environment appreciating that when clients seek her help they are likely feeling vulnerable.

ART THERAPY APPROACH

Art therapy has been used in therapy with children and adults, and it has been shown to be particularly useful when working trauma-based issues, depression and anxiety. To engage in art therapy processes no artistic talent or skills are needed since the focus and benefit is derived from the process rather than the product itself. As with counselling, Lily’s role as art therapist is to hold the space and to facilitate the process in a safe environment. She uses creative art therapy strategies to support clients with developing mindfulness and flow which allows them to tap more readily into their inner resources and wisdom. Lily feels that for many clients a combination of counselling and art therapy is suitable.

Art therapy strategies can be useful not just in counselling and therapy but can also be successfully applied when coaching clients to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.

COACHING APPROACH

Coaching unlike counselling is future-oriented. Coaching is suitable for clients who are feeling well and who do not feel overly challenged by present or past issues. Coaching clients come seeking support with achieving higher life goals and potentials.

Lily practices women-centred coaching where the focus is on actualising the client’s vision and potential in the here and now. She supports clients with tapping into their existing inner resources and strengths to rewrite limiting life-scripts and create new ones that are better aligned with the vision they have for themselves. For this purpose, Lily and the client explore what has been holding them back from achieving their full potential already and explore possibilities for change.

Whilst women-centred coaching was originally developed with self-actualising women in mind, this coaching approach has the potential to be suitable also for male clients. As a qualified transpersonal, creative art therapist and counsellor, Lily includes art therapy strategies in her coaching practice if suitable for the client’s situation.
