Creative Arts Therapies include the following media:
Dance Movement ● Drama ● Dream Work ● Music ● Storytelling ● Visual Art ● Visualisation ● Voice & Song
Some people find it hard to express themselves in words. Maybe certain feelings are difficult to access, or perhaps some memories or emotions are too painful to explore. This can leave the individual with a general sense of dis-ease without quite knowing the reason.
Through the different arts therapies, the individual can draw on their own creative resources — something innate in each of us — to discover and express their feelings instead of speaking about them in the manner of traditional talking therapies. This way, the individual can get in touch with his or her inner, previously hidden, self, exploring deep issues, which will consequently facilitate change.
