Integrative art brings together theories around art and counselling to create simple, practical ways to encourage clients (and ourselves) to express themselves on paper. We teach accessible ways to encourage children, adolescents and adult clients to draw and paint. We introduce evidence-based ways of using art as an assessment tool and help you overcome the “I can’t draw” part of our clients and ourselves. Our approach includes the work of Jung, Transpersonal, Gestalt and Trauma therapists in a sensible, client-centred way.
We focus on learning key practical skills and on becoming free to express and create in our own drawing and painting, which enables our clients to do the same. Our groups are small, friendly, accessible and interactive. Our weekends also include music, meditation, breath work and sandplay.
