Creative Art Therapy

Creative Art Therapy is a powerful form of psychotherapy that facilitates self-expression and exploration of the inner self. Through creative activities like drawing, painting, and sculpture, clients are able to uncover and express emotions and experiences that may be too difficult to express through words. This process of using creative arts to explore the conscious and subconscious workings of the psyche can lead to greater personal insight, self-discovery, and healing.

Somatic & Movement Therapy

Somatic Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the physical experience of emotions. It teaches clients to tune in to their body sensations as a way to better understand and process their trauma and joy. It is an effective method for learning to experience emotions through the body, leading to improved self-awareness, regulation of emotions, and better mental and physical health.
