Creative family mental health support.
Featured on, in or recommended by:
At Heart Smart Arts we believe Creativity is a visionary way to support our mental health as individuals, as families and the wider community. More than ever, people are really struggling. 'How do I manage my own mental health?', 'I'm worried about my child's moods and behaviour.', 'I don't have the skills I need to support someone I love.'
Our vision is to provide lots of different creative support to children, families and the local community and we are passionate about being proactive with that support. There is no need to reach crisis point. Let us help you before that.
We believe in building trust, fostering excellent communication and supporting the whole family through creativity whether that's with us or another service we can connect you with.
To make it as simple as possible to explore and understand what we do and how we can help, our offerings are split into three categories: Therapy, Support & Creative workshops.
Welcome. We've been waiting for you!
High level, specialist therapy for children and families.
Consultation for parents. 1:1 support to get your child feeling better and relationships at home more peaceful.
Creative workshops and activities to inspire wellbeing and good mental health.
Could you support a local child or family member from a low income family to access therapy or our workshops? We have clients waiting to access these services. Your support could make all the difference to a family in need.
Hi, I'm Harriet!
I'm an HCPC registered Art Therapist, an experienced teacher and I have been running my own business since 2020.
These have been really challenging times and I am so glad that we are at the point that Heart Smart Arts can begin to support more children and families through groups and bespoke experiences.
Supporting children and families with their mental health and overall wellbeing is my absolute passion. I have been inspired to do this for two reasons:
One is my own experiences with mental health challenges and using creativity as a tool for healing. It is my greatest wish that no child or adult ever feels that they are alone or beyond help.
Two is I strongly believe that there is a significant lack of real, tangible mental health support available to children and families. More than this, the support on offer is is often not delivered in a timely and appropriate way through the education and social support system as it stands today.
I'm here to offer you hope and an alternative.
