How does arts therapy work?
Arts therapists are trained in psychotherapy/counselling skills and are equipped to support clients through life transitions and persistent problems. The key is that it is not necessary to talk about the problem to be able to find a resolution. Sometimes we just don't know what's wrong or can't find the words to express our experiences.
Arts therapy works with the unconscious mind, embodied knowing, and the senses to express emotions, share stories, and ultimately make meaning of our experiences. In an arts therapy session there is full freedom to be you! The arts therapy space becomes a microcosm of your world and you are in control of your world. This means you get to try things that you couldn't try in your daily life. You get to experiment, use your imagination and ultimately decide who you are and how you want to be in the world.
