Therapy for Adults

What is it?


Arts therapy works in the same way as traditional therapy. There is a qualified therapist (Master's degree or higher) and there is a client with issues to work through. Arts therapies however use the chosen art form to support the client and navigate the complex issues they are dealing with, it works well for individuals who find it difficult to articulate their thoughts or those with barriers that need disarming.  

Here at Arts Therapies UK we have therapists who can deliver therapy across the five modalities: art, drama, dance/movement, music and play. The individual does not need to have a talent in any of the art forms to benefit from arts therapies, it is there as a tool to engage them in the process and to help create a safe space for self-expression and support recovery.  

The Process?


At Arts Therapies UK we understand the complexities of mental health issues and understand that quite often the hardest part is asking for help, so we have streamlined our referral process. 

Step 1: fill in the referral form below - you can self refer or refer on behalf of somebody else.

Step 2: We will contact the individual and find the right therapist for them and find a location that suits all- we can deliver therapy anywhere in England and Wales

Step 3: Therapy begins- we typically complete this process within 2 weeks
