Smiling strengthens our immune system

Yes we are in a virus crisis

Let us stay strong together

Smiling is Infectious

by Spike Milligan

Smiling is infectious

you catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today,

I started smiling too.


I passed around the corner

And someone saw my grin.

When he smiled I realised

I'd passed it on to him.


I thought about that smile,

then realised its worth.

A single smile, just like mine

could travel round the earth.


So, if you feel a smile again

don't leave it undetected.

Let's start an epidemic quick

and get the world infected!

How does Art Therapy work?

No art experience needed

  • Your Art Therapist will guide you in how to use the art materials so experience in art-making is not necessary.
  • The right side of our brain - the creative side is activated through processes that express emotions and memories.

image10

Creating artwork that 'speaks'

  • Using various art materials and paper or 3D materials like clay or plasticine, the client creates what feelings and thoughts are inside and expresses them on the outside.
  • Creating art helps to understand issues when words cannot be found or are not enough.

image11

Safe and Confidential

  • Safety and confidentiality is paramount during the art therapy process so a qualified Art Therapist has the knowledge and skills to support clients in the environment be it a group or individual session.
  • All artwork created belongs to the client.

What can Art Therapy help?

Autism? ADHD?

Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and other similar conditions all share a common theme - difficulty in expression of self and communication with others. Art Therapy gently supports and guides children and adults to express themselves in their own time and unique way.

image13

Stress, Depression & Anxiety

Stress, depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Art therapy gently helps to uncover the reasons behind the emotions and helps ways to find answers, kick-start motivation, regain perspective, and feel joy. 

 

image14

Trauma & PTSD

Children and adults can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic events. Poor sleep, anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Using art therapy in a safe environment, can help overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing and finding peace in time. 

 

image15

Dementia

There are a few forms of dementia but there is a common thread - memory & communication problems that give rise to distress, anxiety, anger, and fear. Using art therapy in a safe environment, addresses those negative emotions so joy and peace can be found again.
