Art Therapy Group Sessions

​Holistic Integrated Creative Art Therapy (HICAT) Sessions

I have a range of group classes coming soon. Group classes run once a week per term.

What does a HICAT session look like:

Each session is different but typically incorporates:

  • a relaxation activity,

  • a chat about where you are at,

  • a creative activity which may include one or more of dance, music, clay, painting, drawing.

  • Reflection and discussion

  • Ideas/emotional tools to use between sessions

supporting

mental health  using the creative process of art making
to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being for individuals of

all ages.

Classes are evolved around a small group of people looking to enhance their mental well being. These are a great way to connect with yourself and others and are ideal as a maintenance program for your emotional health.

For more information about group availability and inclusions, please contact us. Types of sessions include:

  • For Kids: Teaching children to use the creative arts to give "voice" to thoughts they cannot verbally express. Each session will start with a warm up, include activities which promote the processing of self-esteem, trauma, stress or anxiety and include opportunities to reflect. Children will be encouraged to: use problem solving, imagination and self-expression to build self-awareness; communicate thoughts and feelings in a safe, non-judgmental environment
     

  • For Women: Within a safe and nurturing environment, you will go on a journey of self-discovery. We will explore self-expression and self-awareness, looking to build peach of mind, self esteem, communication, and tension release.
