What are the Arts Therapies? Arts therapies are forms of expressive therapy that uses the creative process to improve a person’s emotional and physical, wellbeing. There are four professions:

They are State Registered with the UK Health Professions Council (HPC). Arts Therapies is the therapeutic use of art, music, drama or dance within a professional relationship, for people who experience illness, trauma or challenges in living, and those who seek personal development. Through creating art, engaging with music and reflecting on the products and processes, people can increase awareness of self and others cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences and enhance cognitive abilities.
