Art therapy is a therapeutic approach that promotes healing by tapping into and revealing an individual’s deepest thoughts and feelings through the arts.
This therapy is accessible to people of all ages, including those who do not consider themselves good at art. Research indicates that it might be helpful for people with a wide variety of conditions, from eating disorders to trauma.
During an art therapy session, the therapist will help the client communicate their feelings through images. The images can then be reflected on and this can lead to new insights and personal growth and change.
Art therapy can enhance self-understanding and tackle deeply rooted psychological problems. It is often effective for people who do not respond well to ‘talking therapies’.
