My monthly newsletter brings you a mix of creativity, psychology and mind-body connection applied to everyday life. I do not share your details with anyone.

Welcome to
Sensemaking Space -
Trauma-informed Coaching & Art Therapy

I'm Conny Weyrich.
I’m the founder of Sensemaking Space and a Masters-qualified Art Therapist and Coach.

These days, I live in Melbourne, Australia. I’m originally from Germany, half-Austrian and have lived in the UK for some years.  


For online sessions, I work with people all over the world - assuming we find a time when we are both awake... 

You may be here because...

You enjoy your job, but you'd like to infuse it with more depth.
You feel that your work (or life) no longer fits as well as it used to, and you want to explore what might need to shift.
You are going through a period of significant change or challenge and need a place to drop anchor, with someone who supports you and asks powerful questions.
You face an important decision and want to make sure that you listen to your head and heart.
You want to get clear on your values, in life or business, so they can guide your choices.
You are curious how your story has shaped you and how to use it as an empowering force.
You want to harness your creativity and seek some encouragement and guidance.
Things are feeling pretty good. To keep it that way you want to make time to reflect regularly in a space that takes you safely to the edge of knowing.

Neuroscience, shaping meaningful work, healing from trauma, integrating emotions, and befriending the nervous system: these are the subjects that inform my approach.


I combine a solid grounding in trauma-informed practice and mental wellbeing with the often fast-paced and pragmatic world of business – blending my therapeutic training with my own experience in corporate leadership roles.

My latest newsletter

Fuubutsushi - seasons, change and circular time
"One of my favourite creative projects was my 2019 #the100dayproject where I explored 100 emotions via collage, readings, and quotes. I particularly loved exploring the emotions that had no direct translation into English, for example: Toska – a Russian expression for a dull ache of the soul, a sick pining, a spiritual anguish, a vague restlessness..."

"But... I'm not very creative."


In my work, creativity is not defined around artistic activities.

Creativity is our natural ability to imagine and realise new possibilities. Exploring a range of possibilities, options and directions is at the core of coaching and therapeutic work. 



“The essential ingredients for creativity remain exactly the same for everybody: courage, enchantment, permission, persistence, trust—and those elements are universally accessible.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

In our sessions, we will talk about your experiences, strengths, values, emotions, what motivates and what seems to be getting in the way. We will also weave creative processes into the work and switch between left and right brain activities. This helps us explore what we can’t quite put into words – it makes it easier to stay with uncertainty and the complexity of life.  


When creative, non-verbal expression meets language and logic we can work in a loose, emergent way and stay focused on your goals. I will help you connect with your intuition and that inner voice that knows, deep down,  who you are and what you need. This voice can be quiet, hidden behind your ideas of how things should be and drowned out by a busy mind, your inner critic or someone else’s expectations.  


You don't need to be an artist... you only need to be curious, open to trying something new, and have the desire to shape your future and honour your past.
