Art Psychotherapy

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication. It involves the use of visual and tactile media as a means of self-expression, reflection and communication in the presence of a trained art therapist.

Where words come with difficulty, or are unavailable, art can provide an important outlet for feelings. Qualified art therapist is there to encourage, support and aid communication within a safe and facilitating environment, enabling the client to effect personal change and growth.

Art therapy may be provided for groups, or for individuals, depending on client’s needs. It is not a recreational activity or an art lesson, although the sessions can be enjoyable. Clients do not need to have any previous experience or expertise in art.
