Celebrating the creativity of the therapeutic process and the therapeutic nature of art


The transformative power of the human imagination is central to therapy. It drives our ability to imagine, shape, and realise a better world than the one we experience; it allows us to open up and express our hidden, inner worlds of pain, trauma, and distress; and it provides the means through which the integration (or ‘making whole’) of the psyche can be achieved – both an inner integration, and the integration of our self with the wider social contexts in which we find ourselves.

This page celebrates this process, in all its dynamic, diverse, and exuberant forms.  It will feature music, poetry, visual art, dance, crafts, architecture, and sculpture – and suggest how all of these aspects of human creativity are rooted in the process of inner transformation.
