The aim of art therapy is to facilitate the expression and communication of feelings and thoughts using art materials and processes to work towards an understanding of issues that may underline current difficulties. Participants do not have to be skilled in art as any mark or form made in sessions is valued. Sessions are offered on an individual and group basis.
