What is Art Therapy?
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media to express, reflect and communicate. Please note you do not need to have any previous experience or expertise in art to benefit from this therapy.
Who is it for?
Art Therapy can be used across the lifespan; 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 promote and help maintain a sense of well-being, reduce stress, build self-esteem, alleviate symptoms of depression, improve communication skills, improve problem-solving skills, and most importantly provide a positive distraction with a fun creative activity.
Andrea Clare Plunkett currently holds a BA Hons in Psychology and is an Art Therapy Trainee of MSc Art Therapy, Ulster University, Belfast School of Art. For the last 6 years, Andrea has worked professionally completing therapeutic interventions in both group and individual sessions using an empowering client lead approach.l
