Art Psychotherapy for
Healing, Wellbeing and Growth
“Whether joy or sorrowful, the heart needs a double, because a joy shared is double, and pain shared is divided”

The Golden Yew Project is a team of professional Art Psychotherapists providing psychological support to people living in East Anglia, London and the South East of England, UK.
Combining the rigour of psychotherapy with the healing potential of the arts, our mission is to significantly improve people’s quality of life who struggle to find appropriate and effective psychological support.
We work closely with GPs, Mental Health Professionals, charities and local communities to provide people access to professionally regulated Art Psychotherapy.
Because access to the appropriate psychological support can be extremely challenging for certain individuals, groups and communities, as a not-for-profit organisation, we aim to bridge this gap through a range of initiatives including:
1. Art Psychotherapy for individuals:
We provide short-term and long-term Art Psychotherapy for individuals with a range of different issues and needs.

2. Art Psychotherapy for groups
We facilitate Art Psychotherapy workshops for different interest groups, covering topics such as addiction, anxiety, depression, grief, gender and identity, stress, self-esteem, living with a personality disorder.
3. Professional learning and development
We provide education and training in psychology to different professional groups such as teachers, carers and medical practitioners to increase understanding around mental health conditions, symptoms and related issues.
4. Funding and financial support
As a not-for-profit organisation we seek funding to give people access to the appropriate psychological support that otherwise could not be received. Our aim is to offer people appropriate, effective and affordable treatment based on their specific personal circumstances.
5. Art Psychotherapy research
As we believe in the importance of research to ensure professional standards in our practice, we continuously reference and carry out research to advance our practice.
