Expressive Arts Therapy is a form of active therapy which uses a variety of art forms and mediums to express emotions in a novel and significant way while also examining your process of creation as a means of understanding yourself and relating to others.
The biggest question people often have is "Is it worth doing if I'm no good at art?" The answer - absolutely!
Expressive Arts Therapy is more focused on the process of creation and opening new avenues of communication than it is about making a beautiful piece of art.
While much of your session will be spent on the act of creating, which can often be non-verbal, your therapist may prompt you to describe your process and open a discussion to generate insights and enhance your personal discovery.
Participants of this form of therapy often describe greater quality-of-life from discovering new ways to express emotions and problems that they previously struggled to using words or actions.
