What is Art Therapy?
What issues can Art Therapy help with?
Art Psychotherapy (Art Therapy) is the process of creating art with the guidance and support of a professional art therapist, and is a type of psychotherapy. Through the process of making art, clients are able to explore their inner world, develop greater self-awareness, express thoughts and feelings, access creativity and self-esteem, and better cope with stress. It is proven to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, addiction, mental health diagnoses, as well as difficulties related to learning or physical disabilities, neurological conditions and physical illnesses.
We are able to offer private individual sessions, online group sessions, and regularly fundraise to provide free sessions for vulnerable individuals and groups.
Please send us an enquiry to find out more, and to book a trial session.
Art psychotherapy uses art to help us work through emotional difficulties, especially when communication is challenging. It can be used to support people of any ability, and does not require any artistic skills. We work psychodynamically, using a person-centred trauma-informed approach, where being seen, heard and understood aids the healing journey. We provide a warm, nurturing and non-judgemental space to develop a shared understanding of what has brought a person to therapy. We have several art psychotherapists available, and can discuss with you who might best suit your needs.
Our art therapists are fully qualified, insured, hold enhanced DBS checks, and are registered with HCPC (Health Care Professions Council).
