Art Therapy

Art Therapy, combines conversation (counselling) with engagement in the creative process as the therapeutic approach. It is a form of Expressive Therapy. It is important to highlight that you do not need to be an artist or hold the belief that you are “good” at making art to engage in the creative process and benefit from art therapy. Art Therapy can be beneficial for all ages. This approach can lower barriers in expressing oneself, when words aren't enough, often leading to some insightful conclusions. It is particularly beneficial when working with children, as younger people can be less comfortable or haven’t yet developed the capability of expressing themselves with words. Action, creativity, imagination and play are naturally more familiar forms of expression and communication for children. Art Therapy accesses these modalities and allows for emotional growth, understanding and connection. more info
