What is Arts Therapy?

Arts Therapy can provide a space for people/children to explore, express and discover new things about themselves by harnessing other parts of the brain using any of the Arts Modalities and building upon self-esteem and well-being.
Art therapy is the application of the visual arts and the creative process within a therapeutic relationship, to support, maintain, and improve the psychosocial, physical,cognitive and spiritual health of individuals of all ages. It is based on current and emerging research that art making is a health-enhancing practice that positively impacts the quality of life. Art therapists are credentialed professionals who purposively use specific art-based approaches with children, adults, groups and families to support, maintain, and improve overall health, physical, emotional and cognitive functioning, interpersonal skills, personal development, and quality of life. Cathy Malchiodi (https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/arts-and-health/201304/defining-art-therapy-in-the-21st-century)

Testimonial
"Thank you Kerstin for facilitating a gentle, but deeply moving process on our mothers. As we didn't know what to expect, we were drawn deeper and deeper into a place within where we could resonate with that connection and truly honour it. Many people expressed deep emotion and felt cleansed and renewed by it. Blessings, Kerry." Coordinator, Spiritual Wellbeing Women's Retreat, October 2016.
