Anthroposophical Art Therapy is aimed at the whole person and seeks to strengthen and support the inherent forces of health which have been displaced by illness. It tends to harmonise imbalances by transforming deeply ingrained habits and awakening new faculties of imagination. Each person and situation is unique and so is their artistic process which can bring about new insights and self knowledge, as well as the development of new qualities like patience, confidence and a stronger sense of self. The therapist facilitates this process and is a fellow traveller on this journey of creative discovery. No previous experience or ability is required as the therapeutic effects lie more in the doing than the final result, and the activity itself works in subtle ways to restore inner balance and health to the physical body.
