Counselling, Art Therapy and Play Therapy

A calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health. — Dalai Lama

Art Therapy: What is Art Therapy?

In art therapy, the art therapist provides various art media such as paint, clay, collage and other materials to help the person to express and explore their emotions, develop insight and make sense of difficult life experiences.

Play Therapy: What is play therapy? 

Play therapy is a form of therapy used primarily for children. That’s because children may not be able to process their own emotions or articulate problems to parents or other adults.

Play is natural way for children to express themselves. In a safe space, the child and the play therapist explore what is happening for the child, and ways to deal with it.

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Nearly everyone faces challenges and difficulties in their life at some time. But sometimes, they can be overwhelming, and we feel like we are helpless. Stress over a job, anxiety caused by uncertainty over the future, loss because of bereavement, problems over addiction, or difficulties in a relationship are just some of the reasons people feel they can benefit by talking to a professional Counsellor or Psychotherapist.
