Art Therapy uses creative method of expression as a form of therapy. A trained therapist can help the patient release deep-seated, suppressed trauma and negative emotions in the most positive, constructive way. It involves the use of creative techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, coloring, or sculpting. It can provide solutions to emotional issues without the use of words. Age and lack of art knowledge or skill are no obstacle for being healed through Art Therapy.
Addictions, self-esteem issues, stress-related illnesses such as anxiety and depression, and coping with disabilities are some of the situations that can be successfully treated with Art Therapy.
