Art Therapy

Art therapy involves the use of creative techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, colouring, or sculpting to help you express yourself artistically and examine the psychological and emotional undertones in your art.

With the guidance of the art therapist, you can “decode” the nonverbal messages, symbols, and metaphors often found in these art forms, which may help lead to a better understanding of feelings and behaviour so that deeper issues are resolved. It is therefore a process than relies on symbols rather than words to make your internal experience known, accessing the subconscious and unconscious to build a bridge to self-awareness and healing.

Art Therapy offers opportunities for mindfulness while acting as a catalyst for new insights.

It acknowledges some things are difficult or impossible to put into words and that externalising feelings can bring relief. Art Therapy’s reliance on the nonverbal makes it a particularly useful therapeutic intervention for children and adolescents
