Arts therapy uses creative processes, such as painting, drawing and colouring, to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well-being. It is suitable for all ages and many life situations, and can be done with individuals or groups. Art therapy works by accessing imagination and creativity, while by-passing conscious thought processes, which helps to contribute towards the development of a more integrated sense of self, with increased self awareness and acceptance.
Creative Healing Workshops
These hands-on workshops explore creativity and its power to heal & transform. Using different techniques and mediums, participants are guided in a process to create from within, going beyond the need to create something ‘good’, to creating something authentic. Creating from this place allows a deep level of healing to begin. Making art is a fundamental extension of our need to create, and because of this, art making has the potential to increase our internal sense of health and well-being. These workshops are grounded in principles of art therapy and use non-concrete image making. No art experience necessary, although a desire to delve into colour and form and possibly getting a bit messy is a definite advantage! Please check the News & Links page for workshops in my area.
