  • Communication skills;
  • Wellbeing and happiness;

  • Engaging with new people;
  • Engaging within a set group session?

Then you are in the right place.

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.

Take a look around our website to find out more – or book your place on one of our introductory sessions.
