A Creative Therapeutic journey for you, while learning to support others

michael-mims-fWWiaDox0BU-unsplash_edited.jpg

Creativity is not something we are, or we are not, it is in all of us

Holistic - consideration of a person as a whole interconnected being - body, mind and soul/spirit.

 

Integrated Creative Arts - an amalgamation of creative techniques.  Integrative approaches often involving two or more creative techniques to enhance awareness, encourage expression, understand emotional growth, and enhance relationships with self and others.  Creative techniques can include anything from drawing, painting and crafts, sculpture and clay.  Music, movement or dance, drama, sound therapy, storytelling, creative writing, journaling, creating with nature - any activity that engages a person’s creativity. 

 

Therapy - to facilitate and support self-expression, self-development, self-understanding, and a healthy self-image.  Empowering yourself (and future clients!).

 

You are not required to have any prior experience or artistic ability to study HICAT.

 

Devine-Creative provides a safe space to learn about and share beautiful, gentle, creative tools.  We provide the highest level of support to all our students, we will support you every step of the way.

 

If you are looking for a creative, practical, user friendly, industry recognised course, you are in the right place!

 

If you’ve ever had the urge to embrace your creativity why not try creating your best self...

Creativity is unique and individual to everyone

Arts Therapists in the UK must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), which is the statutory regulator of the profession. The Holistic Integrated Creative Arts Therapy Practitioner Training course is not an HCPC approved programme and completing the course will not lead to participants being able to register as an Arts Therapist or to provide art therapy.

Our course is industry-recognised, this means graduates can join the regulating associations when they graduate and gain insurance to practise

Creativity is about the process not the end result

Creativity is a way of connecting with our inner most selves

There are so many benefits to being more creative, many believe that you have to be ‘artistic’ to enjoy or gain a benefit from being creative.  Creativity is in all of us, we might just have forgotten or be a bit out of practise!

Just some of the benefits of being creative are suggested below – your own list may house many, many more benefits – we believe the benefits of creativity are potentially limitless in supporting our health and wellbeing.

  • Being creative is a beautiful and effective way of stimulating and relaxing the mind

  • Become mindful, express your creativity, learn, grow and accept

  • Relieve yourself of stresses and concerns

What our students say

I can thoroughly recommend the HICAT course with Devine-Creative. The course material is fab, the creative journey is enlightening and Katie's support is invaluable

Chris - HICAT Graduate

I’m seeing and feeling the benefits of knowing stress yet not reacting to it.

 

Thank you for bringing this into my life

Rebecca - HICAT Student

This course is enabling me to be myself, to be at peace with who I am - probably for the first time in my whole life and it really is magical!

Katie - HICAT Student

As the weeks go on I am becoming stronger as a person, and, whilst I have always had incredibly strong values and beliefs, I am getting so much better at saying;

"THIS IS ME, I am me, I am great and I am to be accepted for who I am"

Nikki - HICAT Student
