"Often the hands will solve a mustery that the intellect has struggled with in vain"

~ Carl Jung

Creative conversations are one-off therapeutic sessions that last for an hour and a half.  At the moment, Kerry runs them using clay as a creative tool as this is something she specialises in, however, if you are interested but clay doesn't feel like it might be your thing then do still get in touch and we can talk about what might feel right for you.  

Conversations are run here in the office, in a safe, non-judgemental space.  There is no fixed agenda and you can come with a specific thing you'd like to talk about or simply to have some time for you.  Sometimes the thought of therapy can be quite a scary perspective so these conversations can bridge the gap.  Some of the things creative conversations can help with are:

  • finding connection

  • discussing something personal that you don't want to worry a loved one with

  • Exploring a decision you need to make

  • time to relax and reflect

  • discuss difficulties in a relationship

  • work through worries you might have about a family member or friend

  • talk through anxieties that are affecting your day to day life

The cost of these one-off sessions is £65.  If you think this might be helpful then please get in contact and we can chat further about what you're looking for.

(Group sessions will also run from November onwards)
