The creative arts therapies do not seek artistic perfection. The main focus resides in an intuitive, spontaneous and creative process in which, through the artistic and corporal connection, the person connects to a subtle language which communicates from the soul through image and metaphor our symbolic and mythological world of emotions and sensations. The creative arts therapies enable us to identify and get in touch with our emotions, gain vision and resolve problems.
This alternative way of communication allows us to gently resolve internal conflicts, express emotions and tell our stories whilst acquiring an intuitive, spontaneous and authentic language and form of expression which enhances our creativity and allows us to contemplate alternative responses to old patterns that no longer nurture us.
Through the artistic means, we explore our inner, creative and emotional world which is mirrored back to us through our creations and corporal expression. These therapies incorporate the mind, body, intellect and emotion. The emotional states of a person are rarely logical; Thus, the use of a non-verbal language, offers us a path of personal exploration and alternative communication.
It is often less threatening to create an image or to express ourselves corporally than to directly verbalize our emotions.
I offer a space in which the person can begin to tell their story, through artistic creation, to feel heard and begin to verbalize that which has been repressed and silenced. When we are able to communicate, see and understand our own history we can then contemplate alternative answers and achieve a more integrated and harmonious life ..
