Whilst the images exhibited are not specifically about Art Psychotherapy, the profession does inform their art making and the way they think about their work. The exhibition showcases a diverse range of artistic styles including figurative, abstract and conceptually orientated art works.

Art Psychotherapists usually have an arts degree as well as post-graduate training in Art Psychotherapy and continuing to produce artwork as part of their on-going professional development. Art Psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as a primary method of communication. This can be particularly useful to describe and explore complicated or contradictory ideas and feelings. Art Psychotherapists work with a wide range of clients with emotional, behavioural or mental health problems, learning or physical difficulties, life-limiting conditions, neurological conditions and physical illness.

All the Art Psychotherapists included in the show are professionally registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and the British Association of Art Therapists.

The exhibition will run from October 28 to November 23. The cafe and gallery are open from Monday to Friday, 8am-5pm, and Saturday 8.30am-5pm.
