Area of Speciality

Marina is the Director of Potential Impact, a consultancy that helps individuals, leaders and organisations be more effective and grow. She specialises in tailored initiatives that blend strategic, creative, yet pragmatic approaches. Art Therapy is in fact one of the key tools often incorporated to build personal effectiveness both in and outside the workplace—a great way to gain self-awareness and creatively problem solve.

Here are just some examples where art therapy has been used: defining new goals and possibilities, understanding and improving communication or influencing skills, resolving conflict or dealing with harassment, becoming more resilient or agile when dealing with stress, becoming more creative, or widening skills and career paths.
