Art Therapy @ Cura-Care The Cura-Care team are so excited to introduce Nickie J as your trainee Art Therapist! Nickie now has open spaces in her diary to provide Art Therapy services for children and adults. Nickie sums up what Art Therapy is: ”Art Therapy is a type of talking therapy that uses art materials as it’s primary form of expression and communication'' ''It is not a diagnostic tool but can help people to address and work through some emotional issues and distressing and confusing times in their lives” So armed with Play Doh, Paints and Pom-poms, Nickie aims to support people to manage their emotional wellbeing in addition to our other mental health services. If you would like to refer someone, or yourself, to our Art Therapy service please contact us to book a free consultation with Nickie
