Is Art Therapy the Same as Counselling?
The dictionary defines counselling as the provision of professional assistance and guidance in resolving personal or psychological problems. Whilst art therapy also incorporates professional assistance and guidance in resolving personal or psychological problems, art therapy and counselling are not the same thing.
We offer a Range of Different Alternatives to Traditional Counselling
If you are looking to try something different to traditional counselling, or perhaps you consider yourself more of a sensory person than a conversationalist, art therapy can be a wonderful alternative. Art therapy can also be excellent for those who are new to opening up about their emotions or previous traumatic experiences to others.
Our alternatives to traditional counselling include one to one art therapy sessions, Skype Art Therapy Sessions, our children’s program titled the Dolphiner Therapeutic Art program and our group workshops.
Are You Putting off Scheduling a Counselling Session?
When it comes to seeking out help from a professional counselling service, or an art therapy service you have nothing to fear. Professional counsellors and art therapists are here to help you along your journey and support you in a time when you need it the most.
Often a session with an art therapist can be less daunting, because whilst the art therapist is focussed on you and your needs, you can focus on the art you are creating. Expressing yourself through art enables you to more easily access your emotions and process those emotions, leading to self-clarity and fulfilment.
