Art Therapy

Art therapy is a form of holistic psychotherapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well-being. It involves various forms, including movement, drawing, painting, sculpture, and collage. Art therapy is grounded in the belief that creative expression can foster healing and mental well-being. This therapeutic approach is more than just making art; it’s a journey into self-expression and self-discovery, providing a powerful medium for processing complex emotions and experiences.

Professionally trained art therapists have a deep understanding of the neuroscience behind creative expressive arts therapy and are skilled in using art as a medium to address trauma, psychological and emotional issues. Their expertise guides children in a way that’s both empathetic and insightful. Simultaneously, the therapist fosters new, positive sensorimotor experiences. Our Sensorimotor art therapist, Mei Sze Goh, recognises that trauma and emotional challenges often reside in the body. Through creative, sensory-based expression, this modality accesses and addresses these deep-seated issues. This non-verbal therapy is adept at gently revealing and addressing childhood traumas or addressing challenges building internal resources, personal agency and therapeutic rewriting of one’s narrative life story.
