ART THERAPY MELBOURNE
A form of expressive therapy.
Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person's physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
The creative process involved in expressing one's self artistically, can help people to resolve issues. This also helps develop and manage one's behaviours and feelings. Reducing stress, and improving self-esteem and awareness are some of the benefits.
You don't need to be talented nor an artist to receive the benefits. There are professionals that can work with you to dive into the underlying messages communicated through your art, which will aid the healing process.
Art therapy can achieve different things for different people. It can be used for counselling by therapists, healing, treatment, rehabilitation, psychotherapy, and in the broad sense of the term, it can be used to massage one's inner-self in a way that may provide the individual with a deeper understanding of oneself.
