Our music psychotherapy sessions at CreativePsych offer students and young adults a balanced mix of talk therapy and musical engagement. Recognizing the unique pressures and challenges faced during this transitional life phase, sessions may delve into self-expression techniques such as songwriting, or uncovering emotions tied to specific musical pieces. No musical background is necessary; it's all about providing an avenue for young adults to navigate their feelings in an understanding and supportive setting.

At CreativePsych, art psychotherapy sessions are tailored to the diverse emotional landscapes of students and young adults. As this age group often grapples with identity, aspirations, and societal pressures, art becomes a powerful medium. Whether it's through art journaling, sketching, or other artistic ventures, no prior experience is needed. We aim to offer a space where young adults can freely explore their emotions and find their voice amidst life's complexities.
