Our arts therapists
All our arts therapists are registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and are qualified up to a masters degree level. All arts therapists are required to have regular clinical supervision and take steps to ensure their professional practice is the best it can be.
We work with arts therapists who have excellent experience of working with children and young people, helping people take steps forward to recover from trauma, sexual abuse, bereavement, anxiety and depression, loss and change. Many of our team have specialisms or areas of particular interest and skill (e.g. autism, eating disorders, post-adoption).
Do ask for more information and we’ll be happy to discuss answer any questions you have and advise you on how to complete a referral.

Our associate artists:
For our arts opportunities, we work with artists who have excellent experience in not only their art form, but also adapting their work to meet the needs and ideas of the people they are working with. Our artists all understand how the process of being creative is just as important as the product we have to show at the end of a project.
We employ, and/or work in partnership with, professional artists and participatory arts practitioners. We seek to work together to meet the needs and aspirations of the young people we work with. We have on our books specialists in drama and theatre, digital arts, street dance, art, photography and print making amongst other things.
