Depression strikes in many ways and ripples through the whole body. Some find it difficult to speak their thoughts and feelings, while others cannot find relief no matter how much they talk. Low mood and poor self-esteem leave most feeling isolated and trapped.
Art has an ability to tap into our earliest ways of knowing and responding to our world. When negative thoughts and emotions are embodied in a work of art, internalized stressors become externalized. The illustrated problem becomes the problem, rather than the individual. Sufferers are able to gain distance from their dilemmas, permitting them to work towards alternative solutions.
Prior art experience is not needed, nor is it necessary to explain a piece of work to find relief. Art therapies are especially helpful for children and adolescents. Call today to arrange your free consultation.
