Arts Therapy uses creative processes, including art-making, drama, and movement to improve and enhance physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It is suitable for all ages and many life situations, and can be done with individuals or groups. Arts Therapy works by accessing imagination and creativity, which can generate new models of living, and contribute towards the development of a more integrated sense of self, with increased self awareness and acceptance. It differs from traditional art-making or performance in that the emphasis is on the process of creating and meaning making, rather than the end product.
We are trained and qualified Arts Therapists working in and around Christchurch who have different specialties and areas of focus.
