Why use Expressive and Creative Therapy in your work?

The world is showing us the importance of art and creativity: art is an expression of the soul and humanity

  • Art and creative ways of working are ideal for clients who struggle with words. Children in particular will be able to express emotions, process traumatic memories and improve their behaviour quite quickly
  • Art can also help adolescent and adult clients express feelings in a safe, non-verbal way. All of our creative therapy courses are based on recent research and our own clinical case studies.
