What is ‘Arts Therapy’?

“Why should we all use our creativity…? Because there is nothing that makes people so generous, joyful, lively, bold and compassionate, so indifferent to fighting and the accumulation of objects and money.” Brenda UelandArts therapy uses the unique and predominantly nonverbal elements of creative art-making for insight and transformation. The language of the arts – colour, shape, line, symbol, movement, sound, music, texture, poetry – speak to us in ways that mere words cannot, helping us to connect with unconscious thoughts and feelings, thus aiding personal growth, self-expression, and wellness. Arts therapy is a powerful approach to healing and personal growth because:
  • Art making is for everyone – we are all creative beings and all creative expression is acceptable;
  • It is a dynamic, action-oriented, present-focussed and experiential process that allows you to participate in your own healing;
  • Art creation is a deeply satisfying hands-on activity which can actually increase brain levels of serotonin;
  • Creativity is a powerful way to express, understand and release emotions; and
  • Art-forms are able to express many complexities simultaneously and these paradoxical elements may help you better understand and integrate conflicting feelings and experiences.
