What is Art Therapy?

Art Therapy: works on the premise that ART IS MEDICINE (AIM).  Art Therapy is a powerful and effective healing practice which renews, teaches, inspires and nurtures the human spirit.

It can be ‘one on one’ or ‘group’ therapy sessions.  Held within the parameters of a safe space your Art becomes a language to Articulate, to Play, Explore, Recover and  Discover your creative being. In turn releasing stress, healing and renewing a sense of Self.

Stress is a very real experience and we develop ways of normalizing what is happening to us with exercises carefully designed to maximise your experience as you take a personal journey to reclaim your fragmented stressed self.

You do not need any experience in art and all are encouraged and acknowledged for their uniqueness through this workshop.
