The first thing to say is that you don’t have to be good at art to take part in an art therapy group, or to see a therapist for individual art therapy.
When you are depressed, or anxious, it can be a confusing time, and sometimes it is difficult to put your thoughts and feelings into words. Using art materials can be one way of helping you to express yourself and can sometimes be a key to open a door.
Experimenting with art materials can be a path to finding a new playfulness and to rediscovering creativity. This in turn can help you to feel happier and more fulfilled.
The art therapist does not interpret your drawings or paintings, but can think about them with you. The sessions are confidential, and your art work is kept safely for you between sessions.
