Art Therapy

Creativity is great for your mental health and art is a powerful way to externalise feelings, emotions and sensations.

 

Art therapy is recommended for people of all ages experiencing trauma, changes in life, loss, illness or disabilities causing distress to the individual, their family or carers.

 

We offer individual art therapy sessions and group sessions facilitated by a qualified art therapist and professional member of ANZACATA.​

*Our Children’s Drawing Club is not a therapy group but it encompasses principles of art therapy such as wellbeing, self expression, containment and a safe space to experiment and process.
