The core of Catharsis community work is geared towards delivering the Arts Therapies to hard to reach groups and individuals who are often socially excluded or who are experiencing psychological, emotional, relational or social difficulties.


Catharsis has an Arts Therapy centre in a quiet and confidential location, easily accessible from the centre of Derby and with parking. We have a pool of therapists available to see individuals, couples and families wishing to benefit from our services independently.

Professional Training

We deliver training specifically for professionals working within a health, community, social care and education arena.  A variety of training packages are on offer that can be tailored to fit the needs of the organisation and professionals. See our 2017 Summer timetable of training events here.

Arts Based Training

Drama and the arts are a powerful medium for training. Creativity is essential because it is at the heart of innovation and innovation is a growth driver, therefore a business imperative.

Arts Therapies

The Arts Therapies offer psychological treatments, which pay attention to individuals emotional, psychological, social and physical needs.

Case Studies

These case studies are based on real clients in therapy.  This will provide you with a look through the keyhole into a typical session or therapeutic process as a whole.
