Children often struggle in school not because of the rigours of academics but because of personal challenges that interfere with their ability to focus on learning. Many behavioural, emotional and academic issues stem from a lack of confidence, and the earlier that this is recognised and tackled, the faster the child finds success. The benefits of therapy for children includes the development of self-awareness, self-esteem, problem-solving and coping skills which support emotional and personal growth.

Art Therapy Hamilton New Zealand


Art reveals - Art enables - Art heals

Different parts of the brain are engaged during creative expression leading to an improvement in psychological wellbeing and academic achievement.

Art making, and Art Therapy are processes by which children can explore, learn and express meaning through creative processes.  

Our Art for Wellness program provides children with an opportunity to stimulate their imaginations and to express themselves creatively using a combination of processes such as music, drama. creative movement, creative writing and visual arts.  

Our art groups are aimed at children of all ages, with the art therapist-in-training working with small groups of 2-4 children or one on one. Sessions are planned around the interests and needs of the individual children who attend.

Through art therapy children can:


  • Increase self-awareness
  • Develop their emotional resilience, self-esteem and confidence
  • Have an opportunity for safe and contained self- expression
  • Develop creativity and problem-solving skills
  • Build on their strengths, open up and enhance communication
  • Deal with stress and anxiety
