The Arts Clinic is a unique organisation dedicated to promoting and developing the well-being and full creative potential of those in the arts and creative industries.

We work closely with major and minor players in the entertainment, media and sports industries; with executives, management, agents, and with high profile musicians, actors, TV personalities and sports celebrities.

We offer a comprehensive range of services in:

  • Treatment
  • Training
  • Creative Development and Mentoring
  • Specialised Consultancy
  • Substance Misuse & Addiction Recovery Programs

Our unique approach links creativity with productivity and takes account of a world where creativity must co-exist with commercial imperatives, where business must accommodate personality, and where the stakes are high and often played out in the glare of publicity.

Knowing the territory, all of our work is carried out in the strictest confidence and with absolute discretion.

Whether you, your company or department is facing a particular difficulty - such as stress, communication breakdown, burn out, or loss of direction - or perhaps you just want to improve and expand on what you've already achieved, our role is to support and enhance your work.

The Arts Clinic is the vision of Psychological Counsellor and recording artist, Sandie Shaw. All our consultants not only have a wide range of professional clinical qualifications, but also relevant knowledge in entertainment, media or sports.

This unique blend of experience provides the ideal fit for the creative industries. We already understand the background, and can focus in on your requirement immediately.

Whatever the problem - The Arts Clinic makes it better.
