Is Seeing an Art Therapist Similar to Seeing a Psychologist?
Whilst both these professions have the same end game in supporting their clients mental health, a psychologist and an art therapist are not the same thing. A psychologist is a mental health expert who evaluates and studies the behaviour and mental processes. An art therapist is a qualified professional who has the expertise and training to incorporate art and creative self-expression, as a therapeutic method.
We Offer a Range of Support Avenues, Different to Traditional Psychologist Visits
Everyone is different and whilst someone may require treatment from a psychologist, there are other therapy support avenues available. Sometimes psychologists even recommend their patients see an art therapist to support them on their journey.
If you have the freedom to choose your own method of therapy, art therapy can be an incredibly beneficial support system for you. Our support can be accessed through a range of different sessions including one to one art therapy sessions, Skype Art Therapy Sessions, our children’s program titled the Dolphiner Therapeutic Art program and our group workshops.
Why Should I Choose to Work with An Art Therapist?
Seeing an art therapist whilst you are seeing a psychologist can be a wonderful way to gain further support. Whilst a psychologist visit and an art therapy session have the same end game their processes are very different. If you have seen a psychologist before, and found it wasn’t for you, art therapy is a viable support system for you. To read more information on art therapy see here or visit our FAQ’s page.
