Art Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on exploring thoughts and feelings through art-making. The aim of the sessions is to help students to express themselves through creative approaches, working to build the student’s self-confidence and think about any problems or worries they may have. Words are sometimes difficult to find for thoughts and emotions. Art making can be a bridge, communicating the student’s inner world while creating an object in the outer world.
The therapist provides a safe, structured and confidential setting to encourage students in this process. Therapy sessions are conducted both with individuals and groups and follow the individual processes of the students.
