An Art therapy group comes together for the purpose of using art media and the a creative process to assist in fostering self expression, creating coping skills, developing self awareness and strengthening a sense of self. Art therapy is not limited to one theme, each week we will delve into our feelings and thoughts with a wide range of materials and ideas to play with and explore what is hidden within.
The Art therapy group usually begins with a creative visualisation meditation. (aprox. 10 mins) Then we reflect on what we have experienced during mediation and express this using creative modalities such as drawing, collage, painting and/or journaling. Each week we will discover themes that will assist us in connecting with our higher self; drawing on our unconscious mind to give us greater clarity and bringing healing to any concerns we have in regards to moving forward in our lives. Through this experience we will learn to understand how we work and what may be blocking us.
Art therapy is an exploration of self, a doorway to hope and building confidence and self-validation. Gaining insight, self-awareness and reflection increases motivation in dealing with any issues, worries or fears you may be experiencing. The process is facilitated in a safe, non-judgmental, trusting and relaxed environment.
Sharing in a group facilitates social support and trust, welding the group together, giving each individual a sense of ‘I’m not alone‘ as well as allowing you to pursue their own path.
