Arts Therapies are recognised and regulated psychotherapies which aim to help people come to terms with difficult feelings, events or memories. Art Therapies are especially beneficial when individuals feel distanced from their feelings, when it is upsetting to talk about a painful experience or for individuals with communication difficulties.
Many people find arts therapies can help them learn to deal with their difficulties and articulate their feelings through creative activities such as making a model or piece of art, creating music drama and dance. Experiences or feelings that may be hard to put into words can be expressed through the artwork. You don't need any skills or previous experience to benefit from Art Therapies.
