Our core belief is that enriching peoples' lives through group and individual imaginative art programs has a positive impact on health and wellbeing, enhancing lives by opening new perspectives. Cathartic offers a scope of stimulating programs designed to address happiness, resilience, rehabilitation, loneliness, isolation or integration, inspiring confidence, and artistic ability. We strive to provide vibrant, innovative, and thought-provoking programs, improving the quality of life for all involved. Programs offer artistic, tailor-made activities allowing each person to grow and find their creative voice, through a cathartic process. Cathartic looks to improve lives by providing bespoke, dynamic arts workshops for a wide scope of the community, with our youngest client being under one year old and our oldest, an astonishing 102!
All workshops are innovative, bespoke, and varied hands-on activities, designed to be accessible for everyone. This allows for individuals to explore their own creative journey, to build up their self-belief, gain new skills and qualifications helping them to seek their individual true potential, through this holistic approach. Our main objective is to promote the health and wellbeing of each, and every person Cathartic works with.
We strengthen vulnerable individuals in Watford, Hertsmere and Three Rivers where complex/multiple issues exist. These include life-threatening illness, physical/neurological conditions, dementia, learning needs, mental health, domestic violence, drug/alcohol abuse, bereavement, social isolation, children’s health/development and family breakdown. Cathartic provides more than just an activity: it offers a multi-professional approach in a first step to social integration, processing illness, coping with grief, building resilience and self-esteem, living positively with a disability, all within a safe, creative and therapeutic environment. In essence, we at Cathartic offer a route of self-discovery and learning, to develop personal support strategies to enrich general wellbeing.
