Art Psychotherapy is a form of treatment that uses creative modalities, including art making, drama, and movement to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Art Psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that embraces a variety of theoretical frameworks. It differs from traditional art-making or performance in that the emphasis is on the process of creating, rather than on the end product. A registered Art Psychotherapist has completed a two-year masters level programme and focuses on developing a therapeutic relationship, with clear boundaries and goals.

Art Psychotherapy can be practised with individuals as well as groups.

About Us

In 2017 a loose cooperative of holistic practitioners came together, seeking a centre to further their work. They found Heather Lodge. The group’s members live on Arran and work mainly with regular clients, some with chronic medical conditions, often with the support of local charities — ArCaS and the Mary Davies Trust.

Heather Lodge, set in the grounds of the historic Douglas Hotel, was originally a stable, but has been in use as a private dwelling for many years. There is an attractive and secluded garden. The premises provide several therapy rooms and a healing ambience. Plans are afoot to develop facilities for small groups, including yoga, mindfulness and Qi Gong.
