It would be useful for those women looking for a journey of self- exploration & better understanding of their inner world, as means to acquiring healing insights. The journey is fueled by your own unique free expression, creativity & self-healing. This particular group may not be suitable for women who are working on a significant personal issue or trauma
Individual session varies widely according to the client’s needs & the therapist’s evaluation. But generally an individual session would take anything between 90- 120 min. Session time is divided between creation time, process time & talk-time. Individual sessions are better suited to those who would like to work on a specific issue or want to go deeper in their own self-exploration trips.
What is Creative Art Therapy?
Expressive arts therapy is a cutting edge approach to addressing life’s challenges. The experience of expressive arts might be the creation of a painting, writing of a poem, or simply a movement of the hand. Within these creative expressions lie opportunities for spaces to open and for ideas and beliefs to expand. These are stories of possibilities. These are the sounds when meaning is echoed in suffering. We may delight in the surprise that emerges from ones’ work with the image, the word, or the song. We may engage with what is expressed by allowing it to speak, to tell the story of their creation, to dramatize through body movement, or simply to be with the image and listen to its’ message. We may breathe life into what is created and journey further as we follow its’ unfolding. Immersion into the healing power of the arts o%ers fresh
perspectives, increased potential for change, insight, and deeper connection to self and others. Creative Arts therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The use of the creative arts as a form of therapy, unlike traditional art expression focuses on the process of creation rather than the !nal product.
The creative process involved in expressing one’s self artistically (through painting, movement, drama, storytelling, music or creative writing) can help people resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviours and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness.

Who Benefits from Art Therapy?
Art therapy sets itself apart as a means of therapy by utilising the creative process of art and having a low barrier to entry (anyone can be creative in some form or another). Art therapy can be especially beneficial to children as younger people are usually less capable and less comfortable expressing themselves via words. While art therapy can benefit children greatly, it can also be very helpful to adults. Really, anyone can benefit from art therapy. Even if you’re using creative arts as a means of expression without the aid of an art therapist, there are still many benefits to be had. It’s important to note that you don’t need an art therapist to reap the benefits of art therapy. If you go into art as therapy and learn about the basic concepts and ideas that it represents, then you can learn a lot about yourself through your own isolated creative expression. It’s something you can do on your own to just relieve stress, discover yourself in new ways, etc. It’s also something you can do with other people. It’s truly a beautiful thing when you’re sharing art in an open, friendly, loving environment with other people that are on the same wave.

It is this idea of self-exploration that can often lead a person to some insightful conclusions about themselves. Don’t be surprised if the effects of art therapy lead to a general sense of relief and overall better mental health. Again, it’s therapy, but with a completely di%erent ingredient than most people are used to, art.
