My approach to Art Therapy comes from the position of a practicing artist informed by psychology. I respond to and design sessions according to individual interests and needs. Interpretation of work is similarly focused on client explanation and indications. The idea is to stimulate creativity and an associated curiosity for experiencing things, which extends beyond making art to engaging with others and the external world. Engaging in creative play, in this case specifically visual art gives value to personal expression and encourages confidence in individual perceptions and observations building self worth. Within sessions I observe behaviour, social engagement and mood.
