What is Art Therapy?
Anthroposophic art therapy takes a holistic view of the person, including biography, personality and abilities. It is a non-verbal form of therapy which, through its unique language and the process of making art, involves the client in a different way and can help you find new meaning, understanding and re-establish a connection to yourself and life. You are offered specific experiences with artistic exercises where the art therapist focuses on initiating or supporting a process of recovery, improvement or acceptance in yourself.
As an art therapist I regard people as essentially creative beings and therefore there is no previous art experience required. I have a thorough knowledge of the qualities and principles of the visual arts and apply this knowledge and experience to bring a balancing influence on physical, psychological and biographical aspects of your life. Art Therapy can help you towards an integrated sense of self by assisting in the process of self-reflection and insight, emotional expression and release, of resolving inner conflicts, traumatic experiences and unhelpful life patterns.
The artistic methods and processes respect the individual and are founded in a therapeutic relationship. Clear communication is of importance within the therapeutic relationship. Communicating with you before, during and by completion of the therapy process, with regard to the therapy itself and its significance for and impact on you is very important.
