What is Creative Therapy?
Art therapy is a unique creative process where working with the arts and psychotherapy combine to aid individual growth, awareness and healing. In art therapy no art skills are required – you are free to make images as a way to express feelings and emotions. The aim is to ease distress, increase awareness, resolve conflicts, and/or cope with trauma. Art therapy can help you to manage and resolve emotional problems, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, bereavement, depression, anxiety, feeling stuck, health problems and general life struggles.
Working with the arts by its very nature is healing. By engaging in the non-verbal process you can discover new insights and self-understanding, supported by the art therapist who guides you through the process. It is a supportive experience and the content of the sessions, as well as the artwork, is kept safe and confidential.
