Art therapy provides a channel of expression for emotions that may be too difficult to put into words. It provides a different way of working through traumatic experiences.
We understand that it can be hard to talk about difficult experiences. Art therapy can offer you another way to express your emotions. It’s not about how good the art it, it’s about what it represents.
We have an art therapist at each of our treatment centres and everyone attending one of our residential programmes has the opportunity to take part.
Each art therapy session is theme-based and you have 45 minutes to create artwork to express your personal assocation with the theme. We then come together to discuss the work and share our thoughts with the group.
