Art Therapy

Art therapy is a profession that utilises visual and tactile art materials, creative art processes (drawing, painting, sculpture, etc.) and the resulting images to foster personal development and improve psychological wellbeing of individuals, groups and families. It requires a professionally trained art therapist, and it occurs in a safe, non-judgmental therapeutic setting within a tripartite relationship engaging the client, the art work and the therapist.
