Art therapy

Art therapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses art materials and creative expression as a means of communication and self-exploration. It is a form of therapy that can be particularly helpful for individuals who may struggle with verbal communication, as art can serve as a form of non-verbal expression. Through the creation of art, individuals can explore and express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a safe and supportive environment.SH Health Art TherapyThe process of art therapy involves working with a trained art therapist who can guide individuals through the creative process, help them identify and work through emotional issues, and promote personal growth and healing.
