RHA is delighted to announce a new series of Art Therapy taster sessions at RHA, facilitated by art therapist Andrea Clare Plunkett.
(These taster sessions are offered at a reduced cost and have limited numbers, you can attend one or more)
What is Art Therapy?
Art therapy is a form of therapy that uses art media to express, reflect and communicate. You do not need to have any previous experience or expertise in art to benefit from art therapy.
Who is it for?
Art Therapy can be used across the lifespan; these RHA sessions are for those over 18 years and cater for all needs or requirements.
What are the benefits?
Art therapy is founded on the belief that creative self-expression has therapeutic value for those who seek a deeper understanding of themselves and their personalities. Art therapy sessions can help a vast array of common life experiences including social or generalised anxiety, relief of stress, facilitate life transitions such as moving to a new country or adjusting to retirement, can support explorations of gender and identity and can even help artists who feel they have a creative block. Most importantly art therapy sessions offer a time to stop, relax and re-focus inward. *While these taster sessions won’t have the impact of long-term art therapy they will allow you to get a sense of what a session is like.
