Art Play Therapy Group

Art Play uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals.
The creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to:

  • resolve conflicts and problems
  • develop interpersonal skills
  • manage behaviour
  • reduce stress
  • increase self-esteem and self-awareness
  • achieve insight

Art is a form of expression that requires little or no verbal interaction which can open
doors to communication and work to improve:

  • the ability to imagine and think symbolically
  • the ability to recognise and respond to facial expressions
  • the ability to manage sensory issues (problems with stickiness, etc.)
  • fine motor skills

Fortnightly groups are facilitated by a qualified Art Therapist.
