Art and the therapeutic creative process of creating art, can be incredibly useful for children who may have experienced bullying or trauma and can provide a safe sanctuary to share our feelings and emotions.

Art therapy can be described as being an expressive and creative, form of therapy.

The therapeutic, creative process of self expression, can improve our physical and mental health, as well as our emotional well being.

  • It helps us to manage our feelings in a more positive way
  • Can give us the confidence to address and resolve issues from the past and present
  • Increase self esteem and develop a greater self awareness

Creating art through art therapy, provides an outlet to express yourself freely, which will encourage and promote a healthier, happier life.

Did you know that colouring-in books for adults are outselling cook books? Colouring-in for just twenty minutes a day, can bring you enormous benefits, including:

  • A more relaxed state of mind
  • Lowering stress hormones
  • Help with insomnia

Art Therapy may sound a bit daunting, especially if you believe yourself not to be particularly artistic or creative. However, this need not be an issue, as the purpose of art is simply to express, and not to judge, or compare.

Art should be an extension of how you’re feeling, and for that you are your own expert.
