Cara Lorrimer
Art Therapist & Counsellor

£90 In-person & Online

In a world that often demands so much from us, it's vital to have a sanctuary where one can truly be themselves, free from life's challenges and pressures. Art therapy offers a unique and powerful means for individuals, particularly young people, to navigate and make sense of their experiences. Coupled with counselling, it fosters an environment of empathy, understanding, and non-judgmental exploration. This dual approach can profoundly transform a young person's inner landscape and overall life experience.
