What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy is a professional practice combining art creation and psychotherapy, providing a comfortable and safe space to treat psychological distress and promote mental well-being. Through art creation, clients can express and recognise their own feelings, learn to confront negative emotions, and deal with emotional conflicts from the past. Moreover, in the process, they strengthen their self-awareness, develop social skills, and thereby improve their self-esteem and attitude towards life.  

(Treatment should be provided by registered art psychotherapists.)

Benefits of Art Therapy 

Negative emotions are often hard to verbalise, but the process of creating art can bypass the self-defence mechanism of most people and allow them to express their true feelings and thoughts. It is also helpful for people who lack vocabulary, have poor cognitive abilities, or struggle to express themselves verbally. Clients can often access their subconscious through art creation, which help them gain insights and understand life's complexities. Art creation has no right or wrong, providing greater freedom than traditional art courses. The focus during therapy is not on aesthetics, but on communication and experiences.

Who Uses Art Therapy?


Art therapy emphasises personal experience and the creative process rather than the artwork itself, so individuals undergoing art therapy do not need any prior artistic experience or background. The service can be tailored for people of different ages, socio-economic backgrounds, abilities, races and needs.
