MAKING MEANING

Art Psychotherapy service for children, young people and adults, delivered by Sophie Santolaria.

WHAT IS ART PSYCHOTHERAPY?

Art Psychotherapy or Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which the art form is the primary mode of expression and communication. Art therapy creates an accessible environment to communicate emotional issues that can be too difficult or challenging to put into words.

You don’t need to be good at art in order to beneficiate from art therapy.
