"Explore your soul in search of truth, care for yourself with kindness, light your inner path".
Art therapy is an approach of counselling focused on self-expression through a creative process. This approach is based and centred on the principle of specifically using artistic materials to translate the symbolic representation of lived life experiences into images to give them meaning (such as unresolved conflicts, retained emotional charges, recurring stress symptoms, confused or static physical sensations, etc.). Through the lines, shapes and/or colours of imagery, it is possible to express thoughts and emotions that would otherwise be difficult to articulate. That being said, the creations collect subtle and subliminal messages from the unconscious by revealing underlying psychological difficulties, concerns and struggles, like a mirror that reflects them. This is what characterizes the uniqueness of art therapy.
In a therapeutic setting, creative activities (such as drawing, painting, collage or sculpture) aim to enable the person to achieve a more intimate understanding of one’s self, problem solving, stress relief or simply evolution and wellness.
It should be noted that it is not necessary to consider oneself creative in order to enjoy the benefits of art therapy. Therefore, no talent, skill or artistic experience is required. Aesthetics is not a goal to be achieved in the context of the sessions. Rather, the image created offers a path of introspection and a powerful way to reconnect with oneself.
