Arts therapy is an evidence-based form of psychotherapy that uses art making as the primary form of communication to inform and improve people’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. Art therapy is more about the art making than the end product and is grounded in the belief that this process is life enhancing and healing. Together, the therapist and client develop an interpersonal relationship with clear boundaries, allowing the art process to be guided in a therapeutic manner to explore difficult emotions and memories, which can help integrate and heal difficult and painful past experiences and traumas.
