This article discusses the evidence generated by a multimodal inquiry in a post-graduate counselling programme, where two students and a staff member co-researcher explored the arts processes they found most effective in a shared search for meaning. Here the roles of client and therapist were transformed into enquirer and companion and the focus was on the process of inquiry. Their self-reports, companion/witness reports and art representations (poems) provide evidence of their processes and dialogues over extended time. This evidence offers support for the value of arts-based inquiry set in relational processes marked by safety and trust for the meaning-making that can contribute to health.
