Drawn from her experience of living with Tourette syndrome, Bliss brings a personal perspective and insight to her work and is passionate about challenging traditional ways our built environment influences our experience of life.
She has worked on many major commissioned projects within mental health, disability, education, gallery and community settings to engage and resolve issues of accessibility, inclusivity, mental health and wellness.

"The room’s doing all the work. Everything is here and my mind can just interact with the room and I just sit back."

“It’s so different to just outside the door. It helps you escape what was on your mind when you’re outside, because it’s such a different environment… It’s like going to a different world.”

“When I left after my first experience I really felt like I was floating on a cloud – like that kind of mental space. But the focus remained.”

SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY ENVIRONMENT
Recent studies have identified a range of beneficial effects for the use of sensory rooms in workplace settings to reduce stress, enhance staff wellbeing and increase productivity.
Sensory rooms are also used in a number of aged care settings, particularly in dementia care to reduce negative emotions, anxiety and enhance positive emotions.
There are numerous studies that have demonstrated the benefits of sensory rooms for mental illness as a sensory processing intervention to assist emotion regulation.
Originally designed as a therapeutic intervention for people with disabilities, sensory rooms have become an invaluable resource in this field to enhance quality of life.
Sensory rooms are increasingly being installed in schools to assist students to self-regulate their own emotions, behaviours and improve attention and learning outcomes.
Interest continues to grow for inclusive and accessible resources to support the health and wellbeing of the general population and sensory rooms are the perfect solution to address this need.
We service Australia wide and manufacture right here, in Newcastle NSW. We're the leading experts in purpose-designing truly inclusive sensory spaces for everyone.
ORGANISATIONS WHO CHOOSE US
"Our sensory room brings so much joy, peace and happiness... I’m over the moon with it. It’s been a great investment. The proof is there. Every week I get new people calling up saying I’ve heard about the sensory room or my friend’s child is going there and I’ve seen a huge improvement in their behaviour… it’s the opportunity to calm down... they learn how to de-escalate. They’re calmer, they’re more engaged… we haven’t had any meltdowns. Thank you to Creative Sensory Spaces for bringing so many smiles and so much wonder into every single day!"
