Art Therapy & Music Therapy
Using art therapy and music therapy is highly beneficial when a person is feeling distant from their feelings or reality. They can also help a person when they find it too upsetting to talk about a painful experience.
Music therapy can help to open up conversations about the thoughts and feelings that came up during your other therapy sessions and how you are feeling now. You may even find that creating art and music is therapeutic enough on its own. Music therapy can also be helpful if you are isolated or find it difficult to get to know people. If you are a private person, or wish to work on issues you would not want to share with other people, one-to-one sessions are useful.
As with other types of therapy, your relationship with your therapist is very important and you should feel comfortable sharing your feelings with them.
Sometimes clients cannot express how they feel by talking alone. Art therapy is a way of expressing oneself and giving you that voice.
You don’t have to be a budding Picasso for art therapy to be helpful; the aim is not to produce a wonderful work of art, but to use your creations to understand and express yourself better.
Simply delving into your own music likes and dislikes from as far back as you can remember will open your mind and memory and can bring out issues that you have buried and tried to forget, rather than addressing them.
You will be supported to think about what you have created and how it relates to your feelings and experiences. This can help you come to terms with any difficult feelings, events or memories that may be causing you problems.
Many people find art therapy to be a release.
