Art Therapy

Art Therapy

Our Art therapists use visual art creation, drama, dance and movement to improve physical, mental and emotional well-being. We work with individuals or groups using arts methods such as painting or drawing as a form of expression, rather than focussing on the end product.

Arts therapy can be helpful for people who cannot verbalise their feelings due to developmental, cognitive or other conditions.

Arts therapists provide therapeutic interventions using the visual arts, including drawing, painting, sculpture, sand and play for mental health diagnoses, wellbeing, early intervention and developmental disorders. Art therapies can help people to resolve conflicts, develop interpersonal skills, manage behaviour, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and achieve understanding.

There are many reasons why a person might benefit from seeing an arts therapist.

These include:

to express feelings that may be difficult to verbalise

to explore their imagination and creativity

to develop healthy coping skills and focus

to improve self-esteem and confidence

to increase communication skills

to share in a safe nurturing environment

to improve motor skills and physical co-ordination

to identify blocks to emotional expression and personal growth.
