Choosing a therapist can be daunting ... where should you start?
Updated: Oct 14, 2020
There are times in everyone's life when they need a little help to see their chosen path more clearly just as there are many different reasons for seeking support. It may be that something has changed in your life and you are not sure what the next step is, perhaps you are feeling stuck and want to make changes but don't know where to start, or are feeling overwhelmed by emotions. Whatever the reason, choosing the right therapist can be daunting. One of the first places to start is looking up professional associations to find a registered therapist. The professional association for art therapists in Australia is ANZACATA, the Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Association. ANZACATA verifies the qualifications of creative therapists and oversees their ongoing professional development. Art Therapists may also be registered with the Australian Counselling Association.
You can find more information about art therapy and other creative therapies at the ANZACATA website and look up registered practitioners in your local area.
