Art therapy

 

We are currently running an art therapy support group, that meets on the first Thursday of the month at Surrey Hills Neighbour Centre. This group provides a safe and caring space for people impacted by road trauma. The classes are filled with an atmosphere of love, mutual support and respect. A sense of belonging is encouraged.

The purpose of art therapy is to guide people through a variety of creative processes to facilitate self-expression and enhance wellbeing. Art therapy allows feelings to emerge in creative images expressing grief, loss, love and hope.

If you would like to find out more, please contact our counselling team on 1300 367 797 (no art/craft experience is necessary).
