Counselling and Arts Based Therapy
Who can benefit from counseling and ABT?
Individuals seek counseling and ABT for a variety of reasons that include:
-Anxiety and Depression
-Behavior issues such as addictions
-Eating disorders and body-image issues
-Intense feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, thoughts of suicide
-Coping with challenges of a mental or physical illness
-Relationship problems such as marital conflict
-Grief and loss.
What if someone needs medication?
Some individuals, such as those who suffer from severe depression or anxiety, may benefit from medication. In these cases, a referral may be made to a psychiatrist.
How does the process work?
Counselling and ABT are provided only with prior appointment. This ensures adequate and uninterrupted time for each session.
Counselling offers a safe space to explore difficult feelings or situations through conversation.
ABT allows for expression of the self and dealing with personal issues through painting, stories, music and drama. Both approaches are empowering, and allow for a deeper exploration of an individual’s thoughts and feelings. This aids in resolving issues and reducing distress.
