Reviews

'Without being overly prescriptive, this book provides a wide range of starting points for conversation and artistic exploration across a range of therapeutic themes. The worksheets are aesthetically appealing and provide space and inspiration for responses in whatever form or media feels most comfortable. Designed to be dipped in and out of, it will support the formation of a strong therapeutic alliance and help to gently push open doors that talking alone could not tackle."'
- Dr Pooky Knightsmith, Vice Chair, Children and Young People's Mental Health Coalition

'Jennifer Guest has created a practical, theoretically grounded book for practitioners to stimulate and support clients' self-exploration and discovery. This book will be a useful addition to your resources if you integrate creative/visual arts in practice.'
- Pam Fisher, Dance Movement Psychotherapist in private practice

'This attractive and accessible resource offers a rare blend of useful resources within a clear theoretical framework. It will be useful across many therapeutic and 'skilled helping' contexts, including schools, and I plan to introduce it to Mental Health Champions in Bradford Schools.'
- Dr Philippa Grace, University of Manchester, Department of Educational and Child Psychology, Mental Health Matters in Bradford Schools Co-ordinator
