Val Huet is the CEO of The British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT).  Val trained as a Sculptor, then in 1986 qualified as an Art Therapist.  She still makes art in her freetime.  Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of expression and communication.  BAAT provides a source of information and resources for anyone interesting in or practising Art Therapy in the UK.

In this Creative Cut Val discusses why it’s so important for everyone’s wellbeing – young or old, to play, doodle and be creative – no matter how ‘good’ the outcome is.
