Expressive Arts Therapy

“Art is a wound turned into light.”
– Georges Braque

 

“Every person has locked within the creative tools to address life’s struggles, heal core wounds and discover the joy of being alive.”

Expressive arts therapy is an approach to therapy that includes the use of the visual arts, music, movement, drama and narrative expression, such as poetry and spoken word.

Along with talk therapy, clients are able to explore their insights by engaging in and using visual images, sounds, physical movements, writing and other art processes as tools at their disposal.

By working with imagination, clients create new experiences for themselves which open doors to new awareness and provide new avenues for engaging in life.

A person does not need to feel they have artistic ability to benefit from expressive arts therapy. I know for sure that each person has locked within the creative tools to address life’s struggles, heal core wound and discover the joy of being alive.
