Art Therapies offers psychologically informed educational arts groups and one-to-one art and music therapy as a way of helping individuals in their recovery.

The team use the art forms primarily as a way to connect in relationships and explore difficult emotions, which may or may not be reflected in words. Exploring different ways of being in the arts therapies may enable increased connections with arts groups and voluntary sector provision in communities to enable ongoing relational self-care and recovery.
