Creative therapy is a different approach to counselling and psychotherapy.
Where 'talking therapies' may sometimes feel too challenging, working through art and the imagination can offer a new dimension. There is no pressure to find the exact words to convey a feeling and it is not necessary to talk in detail about difficult or painful experiences - an image can 'speak' for you.
Creative therapy uses images - in art, clay, sound, sand, or just the images inside your own head to help the therapist understand your inner world and experience. Some sessions may be spent talking and listening and whether to use the art media is always a free choice.
