Creative Counselling combines talking therapies with creative interventions. As a model, Creative Counselling fundamentally respects a counsellors core training model (Integrative, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy & Transactional Analysis) and compliments the core approach with Creative Interventions. When we work from a Creative Counselling approach, we prioritise our clients’ preferences placing them at the core of the work and meeting them where they are at through their own lens (photography), witnessing their story playing out (role play), and experiencing their world through their own words (poetry). We give expression, movement, a voice, a shape, a symbol, a metaphor and colour to a client’s experience bringing it to life in a way that often words alone can’t do.
