What is art therapy?
Art therapy is a psychological therapy that helps the client to use creative self-expression to work through complex thoughts and feelings that may be distressing or confusing to them. It’s a valuable therapy for those that want to use the art medium to externalise and build on their self-awareness and self-confidence.

Art Therapy is a type of therapy that is used for clients who find it difficult to express feelings verbally. Through using creative and expressive processes it can help clients to work through emotional challenges they may be facing. Art therapy can help clients to make sense of past traumas and experiences through image making. The sessions are often non-directive allowing the client to explore their own feelings through the art making process. The space provided is safe and secure to allow clients to explore some of their underlying feelings.
