ART THERAPY IN ENGLISH
“Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain”
C. G. Jung
What is art therapy? Art therapy uses creative and artistic processes to achieve insight and self-awareness. Through creative expression we can often reveal what we can not express otherwise.
One of the main objectives of art therapeutic processes is to find access to our creative selves. We believe that our creative selves are our most genuine and healthy selves that can, through self-expression, help to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, reduce stress, increase self-esteem, lower anxiety and depression etc.
Everybody is an artist and everybody has something to reveal – you do not need to have any form of “artistic skill” to make the most of our program.
If you are looking for a creative, fun and dynamic way to get to know yourself, better your relationships and improve your quality of life, art therapy might just be what you are looking for.
How? The program is designed for a group context. In a therapeutic setting we see the group as a symbolic representation of the world. We can learn as much about ourselves through others as through our own actions. Moreover, other members of the group can act as mirrors and examples, facilitating our self-awareness.
Group therapy is dynamic, interactive and fun. Creating, sharing and relating authentically with others is a fantastic way of formimg authentic relationships with others as well as yourself.
Our approach is infused by Humanistic Psychoanalysis, Gestalt therapy and Psychodrama. The course is entirely experience based; we will be working with theatre, painting, drawing, collages, clay, dance, music, language etc.
It is advisable but not mandatory to back the group therapy with personal therapy sessions. We offer personal sessions at a lower rate for members.
For whom? Madrid´s international community, English speaking nationals, Spanish with a good level of English (this is a great way to stay in touch with a foreign language!).
How long? We have divided the course into 4 cycles. Each cycle is 6 months long. We ask for a minimum commitment of 1 cycle (6 months).
