ABOUT ART THERAPY
Sometimes words may be inadequate
to express how we feel...
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses visual art-making to help improve the physical, emotional and social well-being of a client, which can lead to increased resilience.
Finding the right words may sometimes be difficult or overwhelming. The process of art making creates opportunities for us to express things we find difficult to articulate.
Through a therapeutic approach, Art therapy provides an accessible way to communicate our thoughts, feelings and experiences in a safe and non-judgmental way to resolve conflicts, increase coping skills and enhance emotional regulation.
Art Therapy sessions are catered based on the unique needs and goals of each individual. Through a therapeutic, trauma informed approach, the individual is assisted by the therapist to resolve conflicts, increase coping skills and enhance emotional regulation. Individual and group sessions are available.
Online Art Therapy services are available through Zoom.
Art experiential workshops provides individuals with the opportunity to use art as a process to reflect and learn in a group setting through theme based activities.
Come and discover a child-driven session that promotes imagination through process art with us! ARTPLAY is an initiative to enhance inclusion and support for all children, regardless of ability, through connecting with peers, engaging in art-making with pleasure and success. Grounded in developmental art therapy approaches, ARTPLAY is a creative invitation to children to get together to explore and grow through sensory-based art activities.
& CORPORATE WELLNESS
We develop and deliver customised workshops specialising in using art as a communication tool. Customisation is available for corporates, schools and social service organisations based on the objectives, client's needs and setting.
With your support through workshop's engagements and services, part of our resources would be committed to subsidise art experiential and therapy services for communities in need.
SANDPLAY THERAPY & SYMBOL WORK
Sandplay therapy is a non-verbal, expressive and sensory-based therapeutic approach that taps into the natural healing process innate in every individual. It combines play and symbolism to provide a unique and safe space for self-expression, exploration, and growth. Sandplay therapy is a creative intervention suitable for children, youth and adults of all ages.
Somatic Experiencing is a bottom up therapy approach that focuses on healing trauma and stress by exploring the connection between the mind and body. Traumatic experiences, whether big or small, can get stuck in our nervous system, leading to various physical and emotional difficulties. Somatic Experiencing helps release these unresolved traumas and supports the restoration of balance and well-being.
Through a communicative therapeutic approach that includes design, art-as-therapy and exhibition, we collaborate with community partners to reach out to more people to improve their psychosocial well-being.
