What is THERAPEUTIC ART?
Therapeutic Art is a process whereby client(s) are asked to create a piece of artwork to a different theme each week (e.g., self confidence vs self doubt, resilience, relationships and boundaries, hopes and dreams) using a variety of art materials. We then discuss the process of how you got to your final art creation, the thinking behind the art, as well as the emotions and memories attached to it. Positive/constructive feedback is provided and possible solutions offered in a safe and confidential space (all participants to sign confidentiality contract).
Do I need to be good at Art?
People do not have to be artists or even “good at art” to benefit from therapeutic art. It uses the
power of the arts and different modes of communication to get people to open up and engage with
their thoughts in new ways.

What is important to highlight here is that these sessions are for those with mild to moderate levels of anxiety only - if they are experiencing severe clinical levels of anxiety, I suggest that they seek support from a Clinical Psychologist and I would be happy to discuss referral processes and systems available according to age group.
