How does it work?

Using art as a therapy can improve your health and help you grow.

Art therapy is based on the belief that the creative process of art is both healing and life-enhancing. Art therapy can allow you to recognize aspects of yourself
and your experience by physically seeing them in your art.

Pictures don’t have a set ‘meaning’ that therapists secretly or openly ‘interpret’. Pictures are helpful parts of conversations, often seen as a three way conversation between client, image and therapist, from which meaning emerges.

There are times where it may feel better to just use the art therapy space to create and not talk. The art images will be communication enough.

You will feel understood and validated by allowing your art therapist to experience and witness what you create, how you feel, and the thinking you will do together.
