Art Therapy

Counselling-Psychotherapy.jpg

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art as a means of communication. Art therapy offers the opportunity for expression and communication of thoughts and feelings.

Art therapy offers an alternative route towards clients developing the capacity to relate to themselves in a healthy way. Art therapy allows for the expression and controlled release of strong and powerful feelings that are often associated with suffering with an eating disorder.

Art therapy can be particularly helpful for people who struggle to express their thoughts and feelings verbally. Through artistic expression, clients can gain access to their inner feelings and find ways to work through them.

The overall aim of art therapy is to enable practitioners to work with clients to help them effect change and growth on a personal level through the use of art materials in a safe and facilitating environment.
