Is Art therapy for me?
Art therapy is for individuals, groups and families.
Children, youth and individuals of all ages can benefit from art therapy. Due to is focus is on personal expression and not on skills or performance, previous art experience or specific artistic abilities are not required as to fully participate.
Those who battle to express themselves verbally, who suffer from trauma, or who have unresolved issues in their lives that cause deep emotional hurt and pain benefit greatly from art therapy – even if it is not used in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities and traditional counselling therapies. However, art therapists are trained clinicians who also know how to use psychotherapy if needed during the therapeutic process.
Art therapy is not only beneficial for people experiencing emotional difficulties, but it also encourages creativity and enriches lives everywhere no matter the circumstances.
