Benefits of Art Therapy

Art Therapy offers another form of communication to express issues or feelings that cannot be initially expressed through words. Helen uses Art therapy to guide the mind to alternative ways of thinking; ultimately enabling the individual to discover ways to enrich their life and live in a more peaceful manner. She believes that when we are not feeling ‘well’ we have disconnected from a part of ourselves and who we truly are. Art therapy enables us to rebuild and reconnect our mind and body, leading to a more meaningful, purposeful and empowering life.
