What is Art Therapy

Art therapy is the deliberate use of art-making to address psychological and emotional needs. It is a treatment process which offers a safe, contained and supportive place, where clients can express and explore their thoughts and feelings within the presence of a qualified art therapist.

Art therapy uses art media and the creative process to help in areas such as, but not limited to: fostering self-expression, enhancing coping skills, managing stress, and strengthening a sense of self.

The evocative nature of art allows a person to be expressive.

It is not necessary to ‘be good at art’ as no judgment is made on the quality of the work produced.

Art therapy is a creative process, suitable for all ages, and particularly for those who may be experiencing life changes, challenges, trauma, illness or disabilities.

Art therapy provides social connection, focusing on verbal or nonverbal communication.

  • Sessions are client-centered and as such, created specifically with benefits to the participant in mind.
  • Usually art therapy is run for an extended period, although running a program developed over an 6-10wk period, with self motivated creations or planned activities is also available.
  • The duration of a session being approximately an hour.
