Art in Therapy

Art used in therapy involves creative methods to improve well-being. It is a process where people make art and grow from the experience. Activities may involve drawing, painting, sculpting, or experimenting with colours and shapes. We integrate art and creative activities within a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) framework.
