Art therapy

Art has long been known to have therapeutic properties, when creating visual images, people draw on the right side of their brains, the same side that is used before spoken language develops. It is where visual memories are stored.

Using art materials to make images which can be thought about with a qualified and registered art psychotherapist may help relieve difficult or painful feelings and can help increase well-being.

Sometimes it can be difficult to talk directly about difficulties and feelings so communicating through another medium may be easier and more appropriate.

Sometimes words can't be used or found to describe thoughts and feelings but the processes involved in image making and the images themselves can help to do so.

Sometimes words alone don't seem to be enough but images and words together may be able to convey what one wants to say.
