What is Art Therapy?

What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy can be a transformative journey that a person undergoes, equipping them with new insights and inspiration about their lives.

Art therapy can bring light to those trapped emotions that might not be achieved through traditional talk therapy.

An art therapist is someone who will be empathetic and will symbolically ‘hold the hands’ of someone during their journey.
