Feelings, and events that have happened to you can sometimes be hard to put into words. The art psychotherapist offers a safe place for you to explore difficult thoughts, emotions, ideas, and relationships through the use of art materials. The therapist doesn't interpret your art work for you, but instead works with you to understand it. If possible, you will be encouraged to tell your story, at your own pace, and to think about the changes you want to make in your life.
Art psychotherapists work with people on a one-to-one basis and in groups. The therapist will meet you to talk about which form of therapy will be best for you.
You do not need to be good at art. The therapist will help you to get started.
