Arts Psychotherapy is a mental health profession that uses creative processing to improve and enhance a person’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. The processes involved help people to resolve problems and conflicts, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress and the impacts of trauma, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight.
Creative therapies can provide alternative ways to express our inner world and explore new perspectives and concepts to help support the journey of living our lives. Whilst traditional talk therapy may be less effective in some circumstances, creativity and play can take us beyond words, and help us to discover and unlock different parts of ourselves as we explore. Creative exploration can help us express ideas and symbolism as we provide space to extend opportunities for growth and a renewed personal journey.
Communicating through creative practice is part of what makes us human, and is an interesting and sometimes exciting way to explore ourselves and the way we experience the world around us. It can also be a way to work therapeutically that reduces anxiety, and frees our thinking to explore new ways of being.
Creative therapies can be beneficial for anyone.
