What is Art Therapy?

Art Therapy is a gentle facilitated process of self-exploration through creativity. Anyone can benefit from Art Therapy. Whether you are dealing with negative situations such as trauma, or grief, or simply wanting to explore what you would like to bring into your life.

It is not necessary to have any skill or experience in art making. The primary focus is not on the product, but the process. Art making is a direct and holistic mode of expression. It is beyond words. The creative process engages the senses and shifts the focus away from the rational mind, allowing you to connect more fully with all the various aspects of yourself, conscious or unconscious.

When you step aside from your rational brain and your habitual groove of thinking and begin to draw on your physical, emotional and spiritual aspects a new story begins to emerge, helping you to tap into your own inner wisdom and knowing, and leading to much greater awareness and insight.
