What is Art Psychotherapy?
and how can it help?
Art Therapy and Mental Health
Art Psychotherapy is a confidential, supportive service where we use art materials to express thoughts, feelings, memories and experiences
Art Psychotherapy is not an art class and is equally helpful for those with skills in art making and those who do not consider themselves to be creative at all. Artwork made in Art Psychotherapy is considered a personal expression which allows a person to communicate issues that feel confusing or hard to talk about.
Mental health is to do with how we feel inside, how in control we feel and how able to cope we are. We usually know what we mean when we talk about physical health, but mental health is often less understood and talked about.
