Art therapy makes use of the creative process to work on your emotional and mental well-being. If you consult with an art therapist, they will involve you in creative activities so that you can express yourself, getting in touch with your deep and sometimes buried emotions and feelings. You don’t have to be artistically inclined for this type of art therapy to help you; simply involving yourself in the various forms of art can help to make you feel calmer, reducing stress and enabling your skilled art therapist to get an idea of what is going on with you emotionally and mentally.
Art is a proven way of communicating with others and can provide healing as well as treatment and psychotherapy. By getting in touch with your inner self that even you may have been unaware of, you gain understanding and assistance with your problems. Your art therapist will use art to enhance your professional relationship, using it to tackle all sorts of problems such as trauma, stress and even illness. You will find yourself much more able to cope with all that life throws at you with your cognitive abilities enhanced as you immerse yourself in the creative process.
Art therapy is much favoured by counsellors, analysts and psychoanalysts as is foregoes the need for words or verbal communication meaning that even those clients who struggle to voice their innermost feelings and thoughts can express themselves.
