Art Therapy

 What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses visual and tactile art media as its primary mode of communication. Art psychotherapists aim to enable clients both to discover an outlet for often complex and confusing emotions that cannot always be expressed verbally, and to foster self-awareness and growth.

Within this context, art is not used as diagnostic tool but as a medium to address a range of issues.

Art therapy is not a recreational activity or an art lesson, although the sessions can be enjoyable. You do not need to have any previous experience or expertise in art.

What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting (BSP) is a treatment for healing trauma. The essence is "Where we Look effects how we Feel."

In Brainspotting the field of vision and position of the eyes is used to correlate with inner neural and emotional experience. Eye positions are held with a mindful gaze which can lead to profound resolution of issues.
