Working Though Problems Using Your Creations

  A unique vehicle to learn about yourself on an unconscious level are your  creative pursuits . In therapy we can use your creative products to help you to  understand  yourself on an unconscious level.  Often clients bring their writing, painting, music or acting either current or crafted as a child. As we go through and understand what is before us, people are amazed what they have expressed with this unconscious vehicle.

Unconsciously we often choose our entertainment based on the struggles we identify as well as the  joys in our lives. People often worry they are wasting their time watching TV, but they may be working on a situation troubling them.

Using Arts for Psychotherapy

"Good art wounds as well as delights. It must because, our defences against the truth are wound so tightly around us. But as art chips away at our defences, it opens us up to healing potentialities that transcend intellectual games and ego preserving strategies" Rollo May, 1985
