Art Therapy

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.

Inside the Studio
“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.

 

“Creative freedom is determined by how we behold the World. Any one of us can make new things with our perceptions that serve as doorways to the creative imagination. No one is excluded” – Shaun McNiff
