What does an Art Therapist do?
Art Therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s wellbeing including their Physical, Social and Mental Health wellbeing.
The creative process involved in expressing one’s self artistically can help people to resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness.
You don’t need to be talented or an artist to receive the gain. Art Therapists at Allied Health 2U can work with you to dive into the underlying messages communicated through your art, which will aid in the healing process.
