About Creative Therapies Collective

We are experienced HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) registered practitioners trained in assessment, psychological development and treatment delivery. We offer therapy, consultancy, supervision, workshops and training. Grounded in evidence based practice, we do this through play and creativity, utilising art, music, and drama.

The Creative Therapies Collective (CTC) is a community organisation of South Wales based arts therapists working together to make a lasting impact in the lives of those in need.  CTC has been set up in response to a need we have seen for more support within the South Wales area. We aim to support individual therapists to secure funding for the purpose of promoting the psychological, emotional, social and physical well-being of the general public living in South Wales through the practice of the Arts Therapies.

The Arts Therapies use music, drama and art to improve the quality of life for vulnerable children and adults.  Image, sound, movement, story, and play, are our tools for change. We offer a safe space where the arts are used to communicate experiences. Confidence develops and emotional needs are met. We are non-judgemental and embrace difference.

We offer support to anyone facing difficulties within their lives. Our belief is that given the right environment and support everyone has the ability to grow and repair.

The story so far

CTC formed in 2014.

Awards for all Lottery funding: two short term projects; a drama and music therapy project for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities based in a school environment and an art and drama therapy project for a Young Carers project in Cardiff.

These projects were evaluated and made a real impact on participants involved.
