WHAT IS ART THERAPY?
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of expression and communication. Art is used as a medium to address emotional issues which may be confusing and distressing.
Another main aspect of art therapy, is the value of developing a trustworthy and safe therapeutic relationship which sets the foundation for transformation to take place.
Art therapists work with children, young people, adults and the elderly. Clients might be experiencing emotional, behavioural or mental health problems, learning or physical disabilities, life-limiting conditions, neurological conditions and physical illnesses.
