Art therapists use art to help patients interpret, express, and resolve their emotions and thoughts. Clients work with an art therapist to explore their emotions, understand conflicts or feelings that are causing them distress, and use art to help them find resolutions to those issues.
At Soul Mechanics Therapy Centre, art therapy supplements therapy sessions. Your therapist will discuss this before scheduling a session with the art therapist.
Soul Mechanics Therapy Centre uses a holistic approach to helping our clients. As such, we aspire to expand our services to support clients’ mental health needs. To cater to our client’s physical, social, emotional and spiritual well-being, we have included yoga, sound healing, and tarot reading as additional recreational services to interested clients. However, these services are never part of the treatment plan for our clients seeking Counseling or psychotherapy services unless clients request to explore the services.
