The benefits of being creative have been known for some time, and it is enjoyed around the world. Being able to switch off the logical side of the brain can reduce stress and anxiety, and help us feel calmer and more focused. Art Therapy is based on this principle, and is regarded as an effective type of psychotherapy. We can express what we are feeling internally without fear of judgement, or repercussions. Art therapy can involve a range of activities such as drawing, painting, or sculpture. It is suitable for any age, and any ability. The objective is to relax, and find comfort in creating something that reflects how you feel inside. It can help to get in touch with our inner self, and understand more about our identity. It can be used to help deal with many different issues such as grief, depression, chronic illness or addiction.
