Seed Wellness offers Art Therapy in Beaconsfield and the surrounding areas.
Art Therapy is the use of artistic methods to help support and treat psychological disorders and help to enhance mental health. It is a technique rooted in the idea that through creative expression we can boost our well-being and begin to heal from any traumas or troubles.
Through creative outlets, this type of therapy can help us to explore self-expression. This in turn can help us to gain new insights and coping skills.
By creating or appreciating art, you become free to explore your emotions and gain a better understanding of yourself; by analysing what you’ve made and seeing how it makes you feel.
Art Therapy is often associated with lowering stress levels, boosting self-esteem AND importantly it’s a social activity that involves engaging with others, thereby enhancing social skills.
This form of creative therapy is known to be particularly effective as a healing strategy for people living with mental illnesses, such as anxiety, depression, dementia, Alzheimer’s, eating disorders, substance abuse and PTSD.
Techniques used in art therapy can include:
- Doodling / scribbling
- Finger painting
- Clay / Pottery
