 Perth and Online Arts Therapy with Cara Flame

What is Experiential Arts Therapy?

Using arts techniques, experiential arts therapy is an inquiry into parts of yourself, your values, your experiences and how you would prefer to be. 

Our arts inquiry is collaborative. You are the expert on your life, you will guide the research.

Your therapist walks alongside as a companion to your discovery.

 We all have depths to explore.
