Creating Calm Therapies, provides a combination of holistic modalities, including holistic counselling, meditation, movement, breath, art, sound and music, creative writing, play and more. It is an active approach that helps you to tell your story, to solve a problem, achieve catharsis, and understand yourself. Holistic creative therapies works on the belief that the body and mind are integrated, and avoids dividing people into physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. It provides a flexible, practical, evidence based toolbox, where the therapies are used individually or in combination with one or more other therapies, to provide a process of self-expression, self-development, self-understanding, self-empowerment and healthy self-image. Creative therapies can be both verbal and non-verbal. When we are unable to express and release our traumatic memories, feelings and thoughts, they continue to have a negative effect on our minds and bodies, causing pain. Expression through art, music, movement or play, is an effective way to communicate, process or share the experiences and feelings of trauma, grief and a variety of health and well-being challenges, helping to increase recovery and well-being. Stress and anxiety have become a huge part of society, with many people living in a constant state of fight or flight. While we may not be able to control the hectic pace of the world we live in today, we can control how stress effects us individually. Having a greater understanding of the cause and effects of stress helps us to recognise what the symptoms of stress are in our bodies, understand what our stress triggers are, practice techniques that relieve stress and calm our central nervous system. When we practice 'Zen' activities, when we get into a 'flow' state, such as art, yoga, meditation, music, creative writing, we are focussed on the present, we are not dwelling on the past or anxiously thinking about the future. This has been scientifically proven to be one of the most effective ways to calm the central nervous system, combatting anxiety and creating feelings of well-being. Holistic creative therapies does not require any artistic skill or experience. There are no right or wrong ways to create art when practiced as a therapy. People with little or no artistic experience can find creative therapy freeing, insightful and self-empowering.
