Description

Art Psychotherapy allows people to work with their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing using art materials alongside talking. Sometimes it’s hard to find words for our emotions or to express how we are feeling. Art can create an outlet for often complex and confusing feelings, and foster self awareness and growth.

You don’t need to have any experience using art materials to give it a go. The art therapy environment is non-judgemental and focused on self-expression.

Those who attend Art Psychotherapy learn about themselves, their relationships, and their feelings. This awareness can help people to grow and change.

We work with people a range of people and support them in dealing with challenging life experiences such as trauma, loss, mental health issues, illness or disabilities. We offer one-to-one therapy and group work.

All our art therapists are qualified to Post-graduate level and are registered with BAAT (British Association of Art Therapists) and HCPC (Health Care Professions Council). They receive regular clinical supervision which helps them provide safe and effective art therapy.
