    Our Community

  • Practice Based

    Our approach to training is planted firmly in real world experience of working with clients. Our faculty are active practitioners and  we are interested not only in academic theories but in the human experience of creativity and relationship.

    Our Faculty


Our courses make the most of audio and video content. We interview therapists working with different client types, such as children and those hearing voices or with psychosis. We also provide, thanks to the kindness and generosity of clients, interviews with clients themselves, giving their perspectives of their experiences in therapy. In addition to the audio-visual material, we include detailed course material, creative and reflective exercises for you to do in your own time, and references to further reading and exploration.

Our Courses

We currently offer four art therapy courses, with others in development. The first is An Introduction to Art Therapy, which gives a good basic introduction to art therapy. It is similar in content to what you might expect of a one-day training. The Introduction forms the first part of our more substantial Foundation in Art Therapy. This goes into much greater depth and is similar in content to a five-day on-site training. We also offer two Continuing Professional Development courses.
