Central to our philosophy is the core belief that each and every human being has both the potential and the ability to be creative. Creative arts, in the therapeutic sense, are not about technical excellence in a chosen artistic medium. In fact, it often proves more effective if the client has no previous experience in their chosen medium at all, as Creative Arts Therapies are about the journey to creating a piece of art, not the "finished" piece of art itself.
