Would certainly recommend anyone who enjoys crafts to treat themselves. When's the next course?!!!" Emma Walsh
" Alex has facilitated numerous art therapy sessions for our mental health support groups around North Wales and her approach to our cliental has been exceptionally brilliant. Her nurturing, and ever encouraging, delivery of her work makes her stand out as the real choice anyone looking for art therapy. Alex continues to bring us new and innovative methods in exploring our own mental health, and its connection to not only art itself, but the world around us" Connor Wood (KIM Inspire North Wales).
