Process Difficult Emotions
Art Therapy is an impactful tool that allows individuals slow down and connect to present moment, develop body awareness, and identify emotional responses. Recognizing and validating these experiences is the groundwork of therapy.
Yes, art therapy can be inherently calming and restorative. But the process of art making within a therapeutic relationship can offer a lot more than just that. It can help you to develop new coping strategies, learn emotional self-regulation skills, and nurture feelings of safety and self-esteem.
Art therapy provides an alternative access point into our complex inner world: revealing emotions, memories, experiences, and even parts of ourselves that have been lurking in the subconscious. It is with this increased insight and the arts' ability to open up space for possibility, that personal growth and transformation can occur.
