Art Therapy

Using art materials to play creatively and express ourselves is another way to explore what is going on for us and our feelings. Like anything, it is not for everyone, but for some people, making and playing with art materials can provide a powerful tool for the expression of feelings and thoughts which may, sometimes, be difficult to put into words. Art making and playing can sometimes provide an alternative way of thinking and being, which can be restorative and enlightening.

I have art materials in my therapy room which clients can use as and when they feel the need or desire. Together we can then reflect on both the products created and/or the process of creating/playing to help to move further in understanding, acknowledging, validating and/or transforming thoughts, feelings and issues.
