"Transformation through creative therapies"

About Us

Transpersonal Art Therapy

  Happiness and meaning is searched by us, through external sources within the world we live in, yet each of us can find strength, happiness through what lies within. By treating ourselves with some time to express our emotions, thoughts and visions through art is the key to our search. These could be drawing, painting, sculpture or music then exploring what emerges. Art therapy frees a way to access our inner wisdom and a path to healing within. Transpersonal art therapy can tap into your unconscious and explore you own personal journey through your own imagery. You don’t need to be an artist to try art therapy; you let your creativity flow from the sense of your body and your ability to place images or symbols in an art form. Through your own personal journey Transpersonal Art Therapy allows you to travel within yourself and explore healing and power. Transpersonal refers to relating to states or areas of consciousness beyond the limits of personal identity. Through meditation it can take you on a journey beyond your usual way of thinking and into visualisations where you can access a higher state of consciousness through a deeper level of relaxation. By doing this allows you to free what is hidden in your subconscious and transfer it to a conscious level through art. Both art and therapy have a relationship with healing. By creating art from within has a natural power of healing. New understandings and insights can be facilitated by the images created through your art. Through these images can be useful to communicate overwhelming emotions from the past and present unresolved issues, crises and traumas. They can also be helpful for loss, grief, body image, life transitions and eating disorders. Through your art new perceptions can lead to growth in a positive way and healing.
