Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses painting and creative activities to communicate with participants. It is the Expressive Psychotherapy. Focus on the client’s personal growth and development, realise subconscious or suppressed emotions.
Aim: to provide a medium for expression that bypasses words, thus helping the individual connect with emotions about various personal experiences (54).
Qualified, registered art therapists help to treat children, young people and adults for a wide range of conditions. It is not a recreational activity or an art lesson, and participants don't need to have any previous experience or expertise in art.
The sessions offer the opportunity for expression and communication through art and creativity and can be particularly helpful to people who find it hard to express their thoughts and feelings verbally (196).
Counselling and psychotherapy may be provided via Skype and FaceTime in the comfort of your home, office or any place of your choice.
