Everything you need to know

We offer Creative-Arts Therapy (CAT) specialising in movement, that also incorporates Talk Therapy and Child-Centered Play Therapy, with individuals, pairs or small groups.

Each session aims for clients to explore and unpack their specific area of interest, whether it be day-to-day challenges, mental and/or physical illness, trauma or anything in between. For this reason, these sessions are a highly tailored and reflective process that actively encourages mindfulness, honesty, authenticity and vulnerability.

What is Creative-Arts Therapy?
Creative-Arts Therapy is an allied health profession that incorporates both experiential psychotherapeutic and creative arts techniques to address psychological and physical wellbeing.

It is a holistic method attending to emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual well-being.

The CAT process can include visual-art making, mindfulness, yoga, dance/movement, drama, play therapy, creative writing and expression through sound and music.

By using these different artistic mediums, CAT helps to uncover and understand an individual’s behavioural patterns, as well as a lens to view their own lived experiences. CAT supports people to gain skills and improve independence in areas such as language, communication, personal care and interpersonal interactions.

As a result, CAT develops positive changes in overall daily functioning, community cohesion, self-development and wellbeing.
