Creative art and play

Creative art and play

Art Therapy is a form of creative therapy that uses media as a primary mode of expression and communication. It is used as a means to address and explore emotional difficulties, mental health and behavioural problems, learning difficulties, physical difficulties and neurological problems.

There is no need to have any experience or expertise in art to benefit from Art Therapy. The process of making art can help people address conflict, aid communication, reduce stress, achieve self-expression and enables a person, whether child or adult, to explore their personality and develop their confidence and self-esteem.

I am an HCPC registered Art Therapist and I use art therapy to enable clients, both children and adults to explore in a non-verbal, non-threatening and in a non-directive way.
