Individual Arts Therapy & counselling:Arts therapy is a creative method of expression used as a therapeutic technique to foster an understanding of emotional conflicts, improve self-esteem and restore a more authentic self. Art Therapy Counseling provides a natural gateway to understanding the underlying triggers and inherent meaning in your personal experiences. It is a facilitated enquiry into the how and why of experiences which unsettle you, drain you of energy and interfere with the flow of your life. It is a process which aims to engage and develop your inner resources so you navigate the difficulties of life in an informed and empowered way.
Arts therapy combines not only our conscious mind which engages more our logical thought and rational thinking, with our unconscious mind which processes information in a more experiential manner and responds to feelings, images and suggestions which comes more automatically.
The sessions are designed to help you to tap into your creative mind and express your deep emotions through art- whether imagining and expressing an image, drawing with only one colour or making a movement. It is not a diagnosis or interpretation of your representations, instead a way to explore and address your own meaning.
Art Therapy Counseling has helped individuals with issues including: Gender identity, Transitions, Depression, Generalized Anxiety, Addictions, Eating issues, Experiences of a non ordinary Nature; Abandonment, Emotional and physical abuse; Creative Blocks, just to name a few.
