Creativity for Wellbeing

Arts therapy provides an opportunity to give shape and form to experiences, to hold and express emotions and to expand and deepen personal understanding and meaning.

By using creative expression to awaken the healing power of imagination, distress can be transformed.

New perspectives rather than the habitual and cognitive ways of seeing things can be found.

Arts therapy can be used to support people to:

  • Process difficult emotions and traumatic experiences by non-verbally accessing implicit memories that are stored in the body
  • Cultivate emotional resilience and greater agency (the power to act) in life
  • View themselves, their situation or their strategies from a different perspective that may offer unique insights or solutions other than their habitual & cognitive ways of working
  • Develop, strengthen, and integrate a sense of self
  • Practice working with and exploring challenging emotions in a safe space
  • Release excess energy and tension & improve body awareness
  • Learn self-soothing strategies to reduce stress and anxiety
  • Enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress

We have a qualified Arts Therapist available at Skylight - Please contact our Counselling staff for more information.
