Products & Services

Our specially tailored programme has a non-judgmental non-diagnostic approach that follows the pace of the clients. It empowers one through expressive arts therapy using creative play, catering to individuals, groups, parent-child and family. We provide free talks and run outreach events with schools and agencies to support the mental health anti-social stigma movement in Singapore.

The programmes can be supportive at a lite level or an in-depth psychological level depending on the theme or needs of participants. The objective is to allow participants to develop deep insight, gain social awareness, self-acceptance, learn how to process losses and grief, to reconcile with self, let go and move on in life. These are lifelong tools that are essential and fundamental to one’s life.

Art provides versatility with a wide range of mediums such as colour pencils, pastels, watercolour, acrylic paint to clay and digital art. This variety is advantageous as specific materials can aid and cater to the participants’ needs.
