Expressive Arts Therapy In London
Creative play is a fundamental requirement for our mental health and well-being.
Too often as adults we find it difficult to give ourselves permission to play and our capacity for enjoyment and inspiration may diminish as a result. Working - or rather, playing - with the arts in sessions can reignite our aliveness and enthusiasm.
Sometimes only the arts can adequately express what we feel, and the arts are a powerful mirror, reflecting our experience back to us, often leading to greater insight. Expressive arts therapy is a form of therapy that involves using the arts to explore and work with our thoughts and feelings.
Drawing, collage, journalling, creative writing, drama, movement, music and sandplay are all potential tools employed by the expressive arts therapist in working with clients.
