Art and creativity – At Maybe we have an art studio space that allows therapists to use art and creativity to complement therapeutic work with clients if they would find that helpful.
“If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint” – Edward Hopper
Art Psychotherapy is a talking therapy in which clients can use creativity to help express or make sense of challenging or confusing thoughts, feelings and experiences. The relationship with the therapist and art making process can enable clients to feel safe enough to explore issues and build resilience. Clients do not need to have experience or ability, as the therapist will support them without judgement.
As well as 1-to-1 art therapy sessions we are also able to offer art therapy groups. This is a non-judgemental therapy space in which clients can use the creative materials, the support of the therapist and other group members to reflect on their perceptions of themselves and others. Being in and contributing to the group can help build a sense of connection and shared experience.
