Art therapy is safe and confidential and your therapist is with you every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you move forward to where you want to be in your life.
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.
Children and adults can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Using art therapy in a safe environment, we can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing and finding peace.
'Art can permeate the very deepest part of us, where no words exist'
Learning challenges, poor concentration, Autism spectrum disorder and many other issues all have something in common - difficulty in communicating and expressing oneself. In art therapy, this difficulty is explored and can be overcome through creative expression with the Art Therapist's guidance. Would you like your child or class to experience art therapy at school or home? Contact us for more information or ask your school to call us.
Social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, can be helped with art therapy. Whilst art therapy does not diagnose, it can uncover what may be happening and why. With consent, referrals can be made to other professionals to provide whole person support.
Art therapy is being used in many aged care facilities with wonderful results. Dementia and other brain related issues all have something in common - communication problems. Art therapy bridges the gap as no words are necessary. Would you like your family member to experience art therapy in an aged care facility? Contact us for more information
Art therapy helps you to find solutions in a safe and gentle yet powerful way. We already know the answers within ourselves but forget how to find that answer. Art therapy helps us to re-remember.
