For Groups Seeking Psychotherapy
Why Art Psychotherapy groups work ?
Art Psychotherapy groups can help people experiencing psychological or emotional distress which is significantly affecting how you function in your daily life.
You may have already visited your GP and been offered medication. You may have already experienced time-limited, purely talking therapies. You may have already undergone several different assessments and diagnoses. Yet you still feel your life is being significantly limited by your condition and symptoms.
How does Art Psychotherapy work?
Art Psychotherapy combines talking therapy with a range of different creative techniques to help you explore and express different thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are difficult to understand through words alone. Art Psychotherapy aims to provide you with the opportunity to explore your issues and needs in a deeper, more creative way, within a supportive psychotherapeutic relationship.
Through deepening self-awareness, Art Psychotherapy offers the freedom to reflect, explore and build upon inner resources to become the person you truly want to be.
