Can Anyone Do Art Therapy?
Art therapy is appropriate for all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have any artistic talent. The focus of the sessions is to improve your mental wellbeing through the use of visual arts.
Sometimes we cannot find words to explain our situation or we simply don’t have a clear understanding of what we feel. Certified Art Therapists can help you express difficult emotions and enable self-exploration through the creative process.
It is a great fit for children and adolescents because their most natural form of communication is play. Additionally, it is often challenging for them to describe what they are feeling and find certain words but they understand visuals. It is great for anyone who may be nervous about therapy or hesitant to share experiences.
