What is Art Therapy?
I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.Georgia O'Keeffe
Art Therapy is a mental health practice which combines psychotherapeutic theories and techniques and the creative process. Clients, supported by the Art Therapist, engage in the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being. Emotions are expressed symbolically and the client is able to gain insight and self-awareness through reflecting on what they’ve made and how they’ve made it. Therapeutic art making allows people to improve self-knowledge, build resilience and healthy coping strategies, process and resolve trauma.
