What is art therapy?

Art Therapy is about giving people, children and adults, a creative route through which, guided by the therapist, they can shed  new light on the challenges and obstacles encountered on one’s life’s journey and find hidden resources in the soul  for courage and healing.

The process of making art is more valid than the produced work and no skills are needed. Often art history, poetry, myths and fairy tales are used as a resource.

The pathway of the soul which may have brought on the condition of dis-ease is also the pathway of healing and comfort, of awakening and renewal. It may be the colours of the rainbow or the form-building in clay that is chosen; each person’s journey is unique.        

Working individually or in a group the aim is to bring integration and wholeness in body, soul and spirit. Qualities of appreciation, understanding and joy in life are thus fostered.
