ONLINE ART PSYCHOTHERAPY
In online art psychotherapy you have the convenience of finding support for yourself from the comfort and privacy of your own home. Sessions are held at the same time and on a weekly basis using Zoom or Skype. All Skype and Zoom voice, video, file transfers and instant messages are encrypted, which allows information that we exchange to be kept confidential, within the limits of the internet (for more information visit Skype and Zoom).
Online art psychotherapy might be beneficial for you if you are going through a difficult period in your life and/or if you feel that you would like to develop a better understanding about yourself in order to overcome any personal challenges, find balance and fulfilment.
Art is not used as diagnostic tool but as a medium to address emotional issues which may be confusing and distressing (BAAT). People do not need to be experts in art, nor do they need to know how to use art materials. However, it is important that you have curiosity and pre-disposition for playfulness and creative expression.
For online sessions it is requested that you are in a quiet room, where you can have privacy and be free from any interruptions. Please make sure you have good internet connection on your device.
In online art psychotherapy with me you can talk about what is concerning you and share any images that come up in your artwork/journals/dreams. The making of artworks and use of different forms of creative expression may happen in between sessions, as a reflective exercise about what you worked on in your session and/or as a form of journaling. In fact, as you will find out, therapy work carries on happening in your day-to-day life, and not only during sessions. At other times, we may find that it can benefit you to create something whilst online in the session, in which case I will guide and accompany you in your creative process.
