Why employ an art therapist?

  • Art therapists are a mature, flexible workforce with considerable pre-training work experience
  • Art therapists are skilled at engaging hard-to-reach clients of all ages, regardless of their conditions (see what our clients say LINK here to AIRS)
  • Art therapists can work individually and in groups in a client-focused way
  • Art therapists provide more than art therapy and engage fully in multi-disciplinary work
  • Art therapists provide safe, effective and evidence-based interventions
  • Art therapists provide cost-effective psychotherapeutic interventions  
  • Benefits for service users extend beyond the therapy sessions: many take up art in their own lives as a wellbeing resource
