What is cinema therapy?

Cinema therapy is a form of art therapy that uses the emotional power of cinematic stories to enhance self-development, self-discovery, and transformation in viewers. During our group sessions (6-12 people), we watch carefully selected films and then talk about our experience in a meaningful discussion. This is all moderated by a cinema therapist.

Are you seeking a new way to learn about yourself and connect with others?
Are you ready for a new adventure into films, psychology and self-discovery?
