What is Counselling and Arts-Based Therapy?
Counselling is a process of talking with a professional about how you are feeling and using that process to try to work through, or change, the factors that are causing distress.
Arts-Based Therapy (ABT) is the use of art forms to accomplish individual goals with a trained therapist. Counselling and ABT can help individuals work on personal goals related to growth and wellness, sexuality and identity, coping with an illness or care-giving, dealing with conflict and relationship issues.
