'I would just like to thank you for all the help and support that you have given me throughout my art therapy sessions. I feel that art therapy has made me a much more happier person and it has also given me a more positive outlook on living life with a disability compared to how I felt things looked when we first met.
Thanks again.'

About Art Therapy


What is Art Therapy?


Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy.  It is a way of working with a trained professional to explore and make sense of difficult feelings, behaviours and life experiences.  Art therapy does not rely on talking.  It uses artwork and the art making process to visually communicate emotions and troubles which are too difficult to make sense of or talk about.

Who might benefit?

People who can use a creative therapy may have a wide range of difficulties, disabilities or diagnoses. These include, for example, learning or physical disabilities, emotional, behavioural or mental health problems, life-limiting conditions, brain injury, and physical illness.
