What is art therapy? How can it help me?
Art therapy is a psychological therapy that uses a combination of art-making and talking to help you communicate and reflect on your experiences, thoughts, and emotions. Art therapy can be used to support relaxation, process feelings, develop self-awareness, find meaning, and connect with others. Through art-making, you can make sense of things which might be difficult to explore with words alone and be able to see things from different perspectives. You can also experience joy from the creative process and from the social connection of the group.
Who is it for?
This group is open to any adults interested in using art to support their wellbeing and help them to reflect, express and connect with others. Group members will need to be comfortable with listening to other people’s experiences and agree to the boundaries and confidentiality of the group. No previous art experience is required.
What can I expect from the art therapy group?
Each session will be facilitated by two therapists, who will provide group members with gentle guidance and support to experiment with art materials, engage in self-reflection and expression, and interact with other members of the group. Group members will have the opportunity to share their experiences with each other in a supportive and creative environment.
