Art can contain meaning, thoughts and ideas. With the support of a trained therapist you may wish to consider many different issues or life events. Therapy can also enable you to understand and safely explore strong emotions.
Art therapy provides a space to think about the course of your life, to notice patterns and connections and through this to effect change. Sessions provide an opportunity to reflect on what is important to you as well as identifying your strengths.
A picture may say what cannot be put into words, can be revisited over time, enabling you to see a situation with clarity
It isn’t necessary to have any experience of making art – and art therapy is just as suitable for people who have never used art materials as for those who have many years of art making experience.
