Individual art therapy, one-on-one consultation, allows a focused approach to your mental health needs. It usually takes place in a series of weekly, or bi/weekly sessions with the same art therapist. The sessions are client-led, no expectations, no judgement, and no experience with art or art materials is required. You will be encouraged to use the art materials in a creative way.
You do not have to be ‘good at art’ to benefit from art therapy. The art objects produced will elicit conversations that are helpful to the psychotherapeutic process.
You may self-refer to art therapy if you are self-funded, however if you would like to be subsidized, we suggest you make contact with your GP and request a professional referral.
Many adults have difficulties expressing themselves with words. In the case of a child who may be going through a difficult time, eg experiencing a family divorce or trauma, bullying or in finding sexual identity, verbal expressions is even more challenging. Art therapy is usually a very effective way of working with children who may be going through such emotional stresses.
Additionally Art Therapy is a recommended approach for children with clinical diagnosis eg. specific learning difficulties, ADHD, Autism, depression etc.
VAST focuses on providing a safe space for individuals to explore how artistic processes can enhance one’s well-being in a holistic way. Our workshops and PD programs are run by experienced practitioners and supervisors.
