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.

image99

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.

image100

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?

image101

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. 

 

image102

Trauma & PTSD

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.

Problems at school?

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.

Other anxiety types-what type?

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.

Memory problems or Dementia?

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

Working through a problem or finding a goal?

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.

Individual sessions or small group classes?

Individual art therapy sessions are normally between 60 and 90 minutes and you will experience personal support and incredible insight into your creations.

Group sessions are usually around 1 to 2 hours with a maximum of 8 in the group. Your Art Therapist will guide you through various techniques and processes in a safe and confidential environment.
