Community Art Counselling
“Art speaks where words fail.”
For over two decades, Lefika La Phodiso has run community art counselling training. While the challenges that communities face have shifted, in some areas it has been compounded, the work we do remains relevant and inclusive. So often the only way we know how to deal with trauma is to bury it. Unfortunately this doesn’t work, as it comes to the surface in destructive ways, affecting our physical and emotional well-being. Community rt counsellors give children and adults the space and tools to access these buried traumas and only then can healing take place. Our courses are aimed at people in the community, mental health practitioners, psychologists, social workers, educators and art facilitators. Community Art Counsellors are supervised by HPCSA registered arts therapists. Our community art counselling training is accredited by the Health and Welfare SETA (HWSETA).
