Holistic & Alternative
Art therapy is the use of art materials for self expression and reflection in the presence of a qualified art therapist. Art therapy is a unique process, combining creativity and psychotherapy for growth, awareness and healing. It is done in a supportive, non-judgemental environment.
Why do people see an Art Therapist?
Some people can find it difficult to talk directly about their feelings and experiences. Using art materials can be an alternative form of expression.
The art process itself can be deeply relaxing, satisfying and positive. It can provide some physical and emotional relief as we express feelings using tactile art materials.
Art therapy can potentially provide a space where people can experiment, make a mess, be playful and spontaneous.
Do I need to be artistic?
No artistic skill is necessary. It is not about making realistic drawings or painting a masterpiece. The artistic quality of the end product is unimportant. The therapist will not make judgments and all work is accepted in its own right.
What will happen in a session?
Sessions usually last for between 50 minutes to an hour, at the same time and place each week. A range of art materials will be available in each session and you can choose what to make or do, with freedom to express your experiences and thoughts in your own individual way. All images you make, and what you may say about them is treated as confidential
