“We express inner feelings by creating outer forms. Expressive art refers to using the emotional, intuitive aspects of ourselves in various media. To use the arts expressively means going into our inner realms to discover feelings and to express them through visual art, movement, sound, writing or drama.”
— Natalie Rogers, The Creative Connection
Expressive arts therapy
Ever felt stuck in life and wished you had a creative way out? Expressive art therapy can be a great resource for those moments. Using the framework of creativity and arts in psychotherapy can provide new insights into our lives, leading us away from chaos and towards clarity.
Expressive art therapy assumes that everyone has the capacity to respond creatively to the situations that they find themselves in.
Even if you think you don't have a creative bone in your body, expressive arts therapy might be the perfect outlet for you. This form of therapy focuses on freeing yourself through the process of creation rather than producing a specific result.
