Take a look at the stories of some of the individuals that come here to see how our services have supported them.

Many organisations offer music and movement, drama, and arts workshops.  What makes us unique is the person-centred therapeutic nature of our work. Whilst our sessions are fun and engaging, they also serve a deeper purpose.

Working with such skilled professionals means that with us the arts are a vehicle self-expression, personal development, resilience and healing.  Our focus is on achieving individualised outcomes for each person taking part, not making great art work or learning a craft.
