Arts therapy uses creative processes, including art making, drama, and movement to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well-being. It is suitable for all ages and many life situations, and can be done with individuals or groups. Arts therapy works by accessing imagination and creativity, which can generate new models of living, and contribute towards the development of a more integrated sense of self, with increased self awareness and acceptance.
