Art therapy is not about creating a masterpiece, it’s about creating a space for healing & self-expression


Collage therapy is a method of gaining an accurate self-perception. You don’t need to be able to draw or paint to benefit from collage therapy. A new perspective on your inner existence may result. Everything we observe has some hidden meaning that we attribute to ourselves. If we can’t put our feelings into words, we can use collage to express them on the spot.

By selecting images at random and observing the resulting thoughts and emotions, you can gain insight into the assumptions you’ve been making about yourself and your life. Take a few minutes if you are experiencing feelings you cannot explain and randomly select some pictures from an old magazine. Without giving it much attention, cut out and glue down your photographs. The next step is to give your decision some thought.


When used therapeutically, clay can help people express themselves and work through their emotions. It’s a way for people to get in touch with their feelings and discover more about themselves by giving form to abstract concepts.

It can aid in the growth of interpersonal competence, emotional control, and problem-solving skills. This method has been demonstrated to help with a wide range of issues, from stress and anxiety to depression and insomnia. It can also be a place where one feels safe and supported while dealing with emotional issues and trauma from the past.


Making mandalas has been shown to improve mental health and alleviate stress. The circle promotes mindfulness, attention, and focus, which is incredibly beneficial. Mandalas also allow for full self-expression.

Symmetry and flow, structure and adaptability: these are all elements of the mandala-making process. Within the safety of the circle, we use art to play and explore, and in doing so, we are challenged to be flexible and open to new experiences.


Painting allows you to get into your subconscious and express your emotions to yourself and the outer world via the works you produce. Painting also helps to develop communication skills, emotional intelligence, and self-esteem.

One could experiment painting with fingers, stencils, painting with flowers, pine cones, and other natural materials.
