We identified a striking need for creative and entertainment industry professionals to have access to high quality evidence-based mental health support. Support that also embraces the complexities of what it means to be working or training in a creative context.
The practice has evolved as a response to experience that spans both creative and mental health industries. Our ongoing activities across mental health services and professional creative industries mean we are uniquely positioned to provide psychology services to creative professionals.
