Why Study Art Therapy with us?
The use of art therapy is widely recognised as a discipline that enables expression, beyond words, in a variety of settings, and promotes psychological and emotional well-being. Our course is suitable for those working in health, education, counselling, community and social care settings, as well as for promoting individual personal and professional development.
This Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) approved Art Therapy course will enable you, on completion, to practise as an Art Therapist/Art Psychotherapist. The course aims to enable you to gain the highest level of knowledge, skills and behaviour that will establish you at the forefront of art therapy within a contemporary setting.
Art Psychotherapists work with a range of patients and clinical settings. They work with children, adolescents, people with mental illness, people with learning diffi culties, the elderly, and people who have experienced trauma – in forensic and community settings.
