Engage Your Creative Mind
Through integrative methods, Art Therapy engages the mind, body, and spirit in ways that are distinct from verbal articulation alone.
You don't need to be an artist to experience the benefits of Art Therapy. With therapeutic guidance, art making allows for deeper self-discovery to help you uncover internal blocks.
The American Art Therapy Association defines art therapy as:
a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. It is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behaviour, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight. Art therapy integrates the fields of human development, visual art (drawing, painting, sculpture, and other art forms), and the creative process with models of counseling and psychotherapy.
