Art Therapy

We believe that art therapy can be a powerful tool for cultivating self-love and acceptance. Through the use of creative processes, we can tap into our inner selves, express our emotions, and develop a deeper understanding of ourselves.

Creating art can provide a sense of accomplishment, which can lead to an increase in self-worth. The act of creating art can also be calming and meditative, allowing individuals to focus on the present moment and let go of negative thoughts and emotions.

Self-Love Art Therapy Group

What’s it all about? 

Art therapy, a hybrid field largely influenced by the disciplines of art and psychology, uses the creative process, and pieces of art created in therapy to help people develop self-awareness, explore emotions, address unresolved emotional conflicts, and improve social skills and self-esteem.

Art therapy primarily aims to help individuals experiencing emotional and psychological challenges achieve personal well-being and improved levels of function.

Art Therapy Groups can improve communication and concentration and can help reduce feelings of isolation. Because art therapy allows people to express feelings on any subject through creative work rather than with speech, it is believed to be particularly helpful for those who feel out of touch with their emotions or feelings. The creative process can help people express those thoughts, emotions, and experiences that may be difficult to speak about.  Individuals experiencing difficulty discussing or remembering painful experiences may also find art therapy especially beneficial. 

Who is invited?

Art therapy has been shown to benefit people of all ages, you do not need to have any previous artistic experience or natural artistic ability. The group is for anyone willing and open to work creatively with themselves and be a part of a group of like-minded people looking to further find love within themselves.  The group space has a power that provides an incredible opportunity for connection, self-growth and resilience.

What do the groups look like?

Here are some ways that art therapy can help you cultivate self-love:

  1. Express Yourself: Art therapy provides a safe and non-judgmental space to express your feelings, thoughts, and emotions through art. It allows you to communicate what may be difficult to put into words and helps you explore and identify your emotions.
  2. Develop Positive Self-Talk: Creating art can help shift your mindset from negative self-talk to positive self-talk. When you engage in art-making, you are creating something from within yourself, which can help you connect to your inner strength and resilience.
  3. Increase Self-Awareness: Art therapy encourages you to be present in the moment, which helps you tune in to your physical, emotional, and mental experiences. It can help you identify and better understand your needs, desires, and limitations, leading to greater self-awareness and self-acceptance.
  4. Develop Coping Skills: Art therapy can teach you healthy coping mechanisms and techniques to manage stress, anxiety, and other mental health concerns. It can help you learn to express your emotions in a healthy and constructive way.
  5. Cultivate Self-Compassion: Art therapy can help you develop a sense of compassion towards yourself, acknowledging your strengths and accomplishments, as well as your limitations and challenges. Through art therapy, you can learn to embrace and love all parts of yourself, fostering a sense of self-compassion.

We invite you to explore our art therapy workshops to help you cultivate self-love and acceptance. Our experienced art therapist Oksana is here to guide and support you on your journey towards greater self-awareness and self-love.
