Welcome to Next Chapter Arts
We are a Community Interest Company (C.I.C) based in Yorkshire. We offer a range of creative therapies and services to help people move forward in a new and positive direction. People can feel 'stuck' for lots of reasons and it can be a struggle to think positively about the future. Choosing a creative therapy that suits you can help you explore your problems safely and prepare for the next chapter in your life with greater confidence.
‘Arts therapies have been found to
alleviate anxiety, depression and stress while increasing resilience and wellbeing’.
(All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing July 2017)
Do I need to be good at art?
You don't need to be 'good at art' to benefit from any of our therapies or workshops.
The focus of art therapy is not on the quality of the artwork, but on the creative process . We are there to support you and to help you find your own ways of expressing yourself creatively. We understand this can sometimes take time. The art therapists are not there to judge you or the art you make, but to think with you about what might be behind what you make and any feelings you may have around it.
