Art therapy is a holistic form of client-lead psychotherapy which focuses on the creative use of art to communicate and address emotional issues and enhance individual well-being and self-discovery. Therapeutic art-making provides clients with a means for expression that is otherwise difficult to verbalise, whilst integrating person-centred support with the physical, emotional, and psychological of their wellbeing.
