Transpersonal Art Therapy
What Is Art Therapy?
Transpersonal Art Therapy is a technique that uses art and other forms of creativity as a means of self-exploration, self-expression and healing. It requires no artistic skill and is suitable for everyone the focus is on the creative process rather than the end product.
Why Try a Session?
It offers an opportunity for people to express themselves in a safe and supportive environment, recognising that each person is different by taking into account their psychological, social, cultural, physical, emotional and spiritual backgrounds.
The experience of art enables participants to communicate through verbal and non-verbal expression, as often words are not enough to describe the vastness of their life experience
I strongly believe that creativity through painting, clay, sand play or any other art forms are beneficial, as it allows the person to bypass the conscious mind and find their own self- expression.
