Our vision and mission

Our vision is to be the most outstanding Arts Therapy service in the UK.

Our mission is to continue to develop our position as a creative arts therapies provider, known locally and nationally for its quality and innovation.

Our intention is to change an often disillusioned society, change how people think and feel about themselves and the world they live in.

We will achieve this by:

  • Creatively and psychotherapeutically developing individuals insight, resourcefulness and ability to express emotions healthily.
  • Addressing fragmented families, individuals and institutions in order to promote internal balance, empowerment and prosperity.
  • Working closely with the community to identify groups and individuals who would benefit from the arts therapies experience.
  • Inspiring creativity, optimism and fun.

We aim to continue to bring the arts into business to motivate, inspire, challenge and unlock the potential of staff, on both a professional and personal level.

We will achieve this by:

  • Providing creative training and development to organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
  • Delivering a high quality programme of creative training and personal development exploring serious issues in a safe environment, contributing to the well being of the establishment and its employees.

We promise to go that extra mile, making our service truly accessible as well as maintaining high standards of integrity and ethics.

We will achieve this by:

  • Employing skilled therapists with a versatile approach to therapy and training, allowing engagement with a diversity of service users.
  • Ensuring all therapists are fully trained, state registered, clinically supervised and maintaining appropriate CPD.
  • Nurturing our network of partners and customers, creating mutual and enduring working relationships.
  • Becoming an integral part of every institution we works within.
  • Maintaining an innovative, nurturing, boundaried and inspiring environment that is a great place for therapists to work, where the can be the best they can be.
  • Continuing to be cost effective, work efficiently, be responsive to change and accountable for our actions.
  • Focusing on the needs of our customers, consumers and partners.
