Art Therapy now available at Mindsession!
Updated: Dec 8, 2022
We are happy to announce that we are now offering Art Therapy services! When traditional talk therapies may feel intimidating, art therapy offers a safe space to express yourself in a non-verbal way. In art therapy, visual images, metaphors, and verbal communication are used for introspection. No artistic skill is required to benefit from this form of therapy, all you need is the desire to create from the provided materials of your choice!
Art therapy has been shown to bring positive results associated with coping with stress, anxiety, depression, and beginning to address trauma, and can help lessen conditions and/or symptoms experienced. It can help you come to a greater understanding of yourself, and learn effective personal and interpersonal coping strategies through the expressive means of art making in safe and supportive environment. * If you find yourself lost for words when it comes to expressing yourself or if you struggle in understanding yourself and the world around you, art therapy may help you explore your internal world more easily. “Let’s allow your artwork to speak for you and with you. I believe anyone can be the artist of their journey of well-being” -Diana Vozian, certified art therapist at Mindsession
