Sorry, there are no events for this month.
Initially, I came to The Arts of Change as a student Dramatherapist. It was my first year and although I had made the decision to embark upon the training as a therapist, the role of the client was new to me. I had no idea what to expect and had no way of anticipating the journey ahead. From the first conversation I had with Christian Dixon (Dramatherapist), I felt comfortable and at ease. In sec…
The AoC counsellors and creative art therapists have worked with a variety of aged children. The therapists have a caring supportive nature and help the children to unlock their emotional and behavioural worries; drama therapy especially. School complete individual referrals, then each child has an initial assessment followed by 6 weeks of therapy. Feedback is given from AOC (sometimes wee…
May I say that when I first arrived I was low and confused with myself. Christian within minutes put me at ease and got me revealing to myself certain issues that I had. This developed into confidence and I cannot praise The AoC enough for ‘sorting me out’. I would recommend these people to kick start any recovery of problems which you may have.

“AOC offer a wide range of Therapies tailored to individual needs that have proven to be very effective. They are fantastic to work with and are very responsive, they are welcoming and understand the needs of our young people. Feedback from mentees is extremely positive and all mentees accessing support from AOC found the whole experience really positive and even life changing.”
Christian, has shown that he has a good understanding of individuality and person centred care by demonstrating the right of choice which is a very important aspect of care planning.
