frequently asked questions
Creative arts therapists work with several creative modalities such as music, movement, or drama, writing and visual art, depending on the needs of the participants. The core purpose of these therapies is to support the wellbeing, health and functioning of the person.
Creative Therapy employ registered professionals. These professionals have the appropriate professional membership/registration with their relevant registration body:
- Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA)
- Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapy Association (ANZCATA)
- Dance Therapy Association of Australasia (DTAA)
These university and often Masters qualified professionals draw on theory and research specific to their profession and more broadly, to inform their practice. Therapists with these associations are subject to continuing professional development and at Creative Therapy, all our therapists are supported to participate in courses and training to ensure their skills reflect best practice and most recent research.
No experience is necessary. Your therapist is a highly trained professional in their area of the creative arts, but also counselling and child development. They will guide you in the process of participating. All you need is a willingness to express yourself and explore your creativity.
