Art Therapy involves the use of different art materials through which a person can express and explore thoughts and feelings in a safe, contained and supportive space with different art materials (such as paint, clay, chalk, charcoal, crayons, marker’s, objects to cut and paste etc). The art object provides a focus for discussion, exploration and reflection or simply for relaxation. The art object offers an alternate medium to express, explore and work through thoughts, feelings and concerns. The process of making art and reflecting on it is firstly therapeutic but furthermore an opportunity for working through areas of “stuckness” which has an overall benefit on one’s personal wellbeing and effectiveness as an adult and professional. Everyone has a creative brain and in Art Therapy, you are supported in tapping into that part of your brain in order to allow for growth and transformation.
