Welcome to Courageous Art Therapy.

My name is Nina Tara and I am a qualified HCPC registered Art Psychotherapist

able to offer Art Therapy for individuals impacted by

• Exposure to domestic violence.

• Bullying or abuse.

• Trauma, Emotional or behavioural difficulties.

• Bereavement; end of life.

• Autism spectrum disorders; ADHD

• Self Harm

• Displacement

• Regligious Trauma amongst many other issues. This list is not


I work holistically incorporating EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing)

and nervous system regulation though a trauma informed lens, where appropriate.

What is Art Therapy?

When we create visual images we use the right side of our brains. This is the same side that is preverbal and is used before language develops. This is also where we store our visual memories. As we know the visual arts have been linked to have many therapeutic properties.

In any challenging experience it can be difficult to verbalise painful & traumatic feelings, especially if English is not your first language or indeed one cannot speak. Using art materials, instruments or movement can alleviate any anxiety or stress. Often resulting in an increase in general well-being. As well as more curious exploration around trauma.

I look forward to connecting with you!
