More About Creative Compass

Cultivating Happiness through Art and Literature

The concept of Bibliotherapy has existed for thousands of years. The Ancient Greeks are thought to have been the first to recognise the therapeutic value in reading books. This has developed over the years to the point where reading is regarded as a viable treatment for mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. At Creative Compass it is our contention that this does not go far enough. 

In the twenty first century we are lucky enough to be surrounded by multiple forms of media. Books, films, music, computer games, photography, painting and even podcasts all have the capabilities of providing relief, strength and therapy for those who watch and listen.

More than that though, the act of creating art and literature has the ability to provide further forms of relief from the very real suffering that comes from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, grief, self-esteem issues and many others.

To be clear we are not offering a cure so much as a helping hand through stories, words, recommendations and encouragement. In this way, we can try to lessen the effects of the hardships that so many of us have to live with and try to get through each day.
