person centred art therapy skills

The therapeutic use of art is one of the most powerful methods of working. Unconscious material can be brought into awareness and worked on enabling deep growth and healing. 

Course groups may include people working in educational, therapeutic, social work, youth and medical settings.

Art training is not required.

This exciting course created by Liesl Silverstone, and validated by Person Centred Art Therapy Association  is delivered in small groups over 6 intensive weekends.

A Diploma course is also available for those who hold PCATS Certificate.                                                                             


CPD Programme 

Well crafted and delivered continuing professional development is important because it benefits you, your profession and your clients.CPD can open you up to new possibilities, new knowledge and new skill areas.  

Previous workshops include, ‘Working with Angry Children’, ‘Art and Creative Methods’, “Sexual Issues in Therapy’ and ‘Working with Addictions’, ‘Working with Art’, “Avoiding Burnout – caring for self’,  ‘Digital Media is friendly’. 

My workshops are held in Brentwood in small groups to allow for a supportive learning experience.  For information of upcoming workshops see below or email me for details
