"A home care package is a coordinated package of care and services to help you to live independently in your own home for as long as you can."

What is Art Therapy?

Imagine finding answers

image12

Art therapy is powerful yet gentle. Creating your feelings and emotions in 2D or 3D using colour, shape, symbols or scenes provides a voice to your thoughts without using words.

Imagine finding joy

image13

Our focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a safe space, supporting you to create what you need to see

Imagine finding you

image14

Art therapy is safe and confidential and your therapist is with you every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you  move forward to where you want to be in your life. 

How does Art Therapy work?

image15

No art experience needed

  • Your Art Therapist will guide you in how to use the art materials so experience in art-making is not necessary.
  • The right side of our brain - the creative side is activated through processes that express emotions and memories.

image16

Creating artwork that 'speaks'

  • Using various art materials and paper or 3D materials like clay or plasticine, the client creates what feelings and thoughts are inside and expresses them on the outside.
  • Creating art helps to understand issues when words cannot be found or are not enough.

image17

Safe and Confidential

  • Safety and confidentiality is paramount during the art therapy process so a qualified Art Therapist has the knowledge and skills to support clients in the environment be it a group or individual session.
  • All artwork created belongs to the client.

You deserve better.....

What can Art Therapy help?

image18

Stress, Depression & Anxiety

Stress, depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Art therapy gently helps to uncover the reasons behind the emotions and helps ways to find answers, kick-start motivation, regain perspective, and feel joy. 

 

image19

Trauma & PTSD

Children and adults can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Using art therapy in a safe environment, we can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing and finding peace.

Other areas art therapy can help

Problems at school?

Learning challenges, poor concentration, Autism spectrum disorder and many other issues all have something in common - difficulty in communicating and expressing oneself. In art therapy,  this difficulty is explored and can be overcome through creative expression with the Art Therapist's guidance. Would you like your child or class to experience art therapy at school or home? Contact us for more information or ask your school to call us.

Other anxiety types-what type?

Social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, can be helped with art therapy. Whilst art therapy does not diagnose, it can uncover what may be happening and why. With consent, referrals can be made to other professionals to provide whole person support.

Memory problems or Dementia?

Art therapy is being used in many aged care facilities with wonderful results. Dementia and other brain related issues all have something in common - communication problems. Art therapy bridges the gap as no words are necessary. Would you like your family member to experience art therapy in an aged care facility? Contact us for more information

Working through a problem or finding a goal?

Art therapy helps you to find solutions  in a safe and gentle yet powerful way. We already know the answers within ourselves but forget how to find that answer. Art therapy helps us to re-remember.

Individual sessions or small group classes?

Individual art therapy sessions are normally between 60 and 90 minutes and you will experience personal support and incredible insight into your creations.

Group sessions are usually around 2 hours with a maximum of 8 in the group. Your Art Therapist will guide you through various techniques and processes in a safe and confidential environment.
