Art can permeate the deepest parts of us - where no words exist.

– Eileen Miller

Art Therapy combines art and psychotherapy in a creative process using the image created as a starting point for self-exploration and understanding.

Working with art has been particularly effective in dealing with trauma. It relieves stress, encourages creative thinking, increases brain plasticity, and imparts other mental health benefits - like navigating dreams, nightmares and memories.

Also, anyone can do art - no artistic skills/experience required.

We work with symbols, metaphors, shapes, colours to begin conversation or a sensory experience that taps into a deeper vocabulary of understanding of how we feel.

Art therapy can help in visualizing and interacting with a problem, as separate from the client, so we can then develop a relationship with it. Art therapy can also help create safety and structure for the topics we discuss in session.

Ask your counsellor what this would look like in session here.
