Being creative can have a big impact on your mental and emotional well-being. In our courses and workshops, we use a therapeutic approach led by a fully qualified Art Psychotherapist to combine the joy of art making with the therapeutic benefits of self-exploration, expression, and reflection. We offer a dedicated and supportive space where you can engage in accessible and stimulating art activities that help you to listen inwards, understand your thoughts and emotions, gain new perspectives and insights and grow on a personal level. You don't need to have any experience or be 'good' at art; there is no right or wrong way, just your way. The focus is on enjoying the creative process, not on being perfect.

Other benefits include:

  • Encourages creative thinking, exploration and curiosity

  • Non-verbal expression can release tension, promote understanding and reflection

  • Relieves stress and relaxes both body and mind

  • Promotes fine motor skills and neural development

  • Enhances focus and concentration

  • Creates a space for social connection

Art Therapy

Art Therapy is a unique form of therapy that uses all kinds of art materials to express and process experiences, thoughts, and emotions that can be difficult to put into words. The art making process and reflecting on the art work can feel less threatening than purely verbal psychotherapy, although not every session requires art making. Therapy takes place in a safe and confidential space with a professional Art Psychotherapist who supports you in working through emotional challenges. This can occur in a group setting or one-on-one. Art Psychotherapy is versatile and people engage for many different reasons, including mental health issues, trauma, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self-harm, relationship difficulties, and bereavement.
