Catherine Polman M.A.A.T. Art Therapy – Project Director
After a successful career spanning 20 something years in business administration I left the corporate arena and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts.
As a mature student life experience has provided a wealth of self-awareness, consequently my work represents my thinking, values and beliefs. In my fourth year of study I knew that my art carried transformation, I experienced art as medicine – art as healing; this personal experience lead to my Masters training in art therapy.
Arts therapy is based on the belief that the process of engaging creatively in drama, dance/movement or art-making within a therapeutic relationship supports changes in one’s inner and outer world.
