How does Art Therapy work?

Art Therapy focusses on the process of creating rather than an art outcome. Therefore, it is not about creating a ‘masterpiece’, nor it is creating something that is aesthetically pleasing. Rather it is just about the process of expressing emotion and doing so by becoming more aware of our body felt sense and the wisdom it holds. The art created has a two-fold effect. On one hand, it acts as a release of emotion. On the other hand, the art acts as a visual representation of that emotion of which the art-maker can dialogue with and gain further self-awareness.

She uses the creative expressive process as a vehicle for self-care and self-awareness. With these tools, she empowers you to navigate towards meaning-making and develop new and healthy coping skills.
