Feedback from previous clients and creative workshop participants. This is what people are saying about their individual counselling or their experience of either an art therapy workshop or an arts 'n' crafts workshop:
"'Flowers Within' is a fun and interesting workshop that facilitates painting, working with art materials to express thoughts and feelings from the mundane to the deeply felt.
The process is gentle, exploratory, sensitive enabling participants to express whatever feels good at the time.
It allows room for reflection, learning and you leave feeling elevated and joyful."

'I have been on several of Chinar's Creative Art workshops and each one has led me into a more profound understanding of how I view things. Dare I say it, I have much more of an understanding of myself and what is residing in my subconscious, which is responsible for a lot of our behaviour. This awareness is leading me more and more to a much better improvement in mental well-being. Sometimes the insights and discoveries are like plunging into a refreshing blue pool!' It is creative and fun.’ Anonymous 19/06/2016
