Art psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy where artistic mediums are used to help explore emotions and thoughts by using art as a medium for communication. Paintbrushes and paper, and indeed other materials, often help people to feel more connected to the world around them and assist those who find it difficult to verbalize feelings.
Art therapy emphasises the process of making art rather than the final product. It requires no previous artist skills and can benefit individuals with mental health problems, learning disabilities, neurological conditions, or physical disabilities. Villa Anna Teresa will foster a supportive and empathetic relationship with clients and will help them to explore their creativity for its own sake and as a way to nurture personal development.
A qualified Art Psychotherapist will assist clients of all ages with expressing emotions in a healthy way, handling stress or trauma, and increasing awareness and self-esteem through creating art and carrying out the art making process. At Villa Anna Teresa we believe in person-centered care. Sometimes we all need some help and support in nurturing our inner world, and to discover answers that are within us.
Art therapy can be an effective medium for persons who have problems verbally expressing themselves. Provided in a non-clinical setting, the focus on creative development can be useful when working with children and adolescents, as well as adults, couples, and families. Art therapy can also be useful for persons who have experienced trauma and for individuals with learning problems.
Villa Anna Teresa offers a safe, secure, and non-judgemental environment.
