THE SOLACE STORY
Solace Art Psychotherapy was founded in 2017 by our pioneer art therapist, Buvenasvari Pragasam (Buvi) and underwent a significant expansion in 2019 with the establishment of our therapy space at Novena Regency.
She was motivated by how art therapy had benefited and transformed her clients’ lives for the better and was greatly encouraged by her peers and colleagues with the same values who worked closely with her.
Understanding how important art therapy can contribute to the field of mental health care, Buvi and her team advocate mental wellness and art therapy through Solace, a professional private practice and recognised social enterprise by raiSE, the Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise.
Since its founding, Solace has worked with multiple government agencies, charitable organisations and private institutions to provide art therapy sessions for beneficiaries and participated in workshops and events to build better awareness of art therapy and its effectiveness.
Solace’s team of registered art therapists and client service professionals facilitate insightful art therapy sessions, helping clients who may have been struggling in silence to get the help they need.
With high standards of service by ensuring privacy and confidentiality, putting ethical practices in place and fielding competent therapists, Solace prides herself in providing clients with the best therapy experience.
Solace continues to raise awareness on the importance of mental wellbeing, the benefits of art therapy and the continued transformation of clients’ lives by helping them heal from past complex trauma.

The sides represent the relationship between client, their artwork and therapist. It represents equality and stability, as trust and security is integral to any relationship.
Psychotherapy is a journey of deep self discovery and reconnection with our inner psyche. The symbol represents a cyclic, lifelong process of recreation, regeneration and rebirth - Carl Jung viewed infinity as integration between our Light and Shadow selves. The symbol weaves around our Triangle, infusing energy.
In the core is glittering gold, representing the strength of spirit residing in every person. Surrounding it are hues of teal and azure, soothing yet refreshing, evoking the feeling of tranquillity and solace.
