Creative Psychotherapy & CBT - Repainting Your Mind
Creativity is a part of every single one of us. We have lost count of how many times people have said they are not creative - yet how many of us drew on a wall or smeared our food across our plate as a toddler, or built a fort, blew bubbles or created stories. As we grow we neglect play and self-exploration but never stop being creative. From creating your day, career path, listening to music, building playlists or decorating our homes.
Creativity has the power to unlock our deepest thoughts and feelings, whether to heal, explore ourselves, find a new direction or just to grow and self nurture.
Psychotherapy is an incredibly useful talking therapy which allows us to make sense of ourselves, our perceptions, triggers and emotions by making links with our past and current subjective experience. By recognising why we have developed how we have, we are able to rewire our thought processes into a new future and heal from past experiences. Sometimes someone finds just sitting and talking quite intense or intimidating and would like to incorporate creativity, or they simply love the arts or would like to rediscover it.
Whatever the reason, creative psychotherapy is a uniquely developed therapy which combines CBT and Psychotherapy with a teaching of the neurological underpinnings of the brain to help you understand what you are feeling - all through the use of art and creativity. This can include painting, writing, clay and sewing, all designed to stimulate the brain, calm and heal.
This is something anyone can do. If you enjoy creativity or would like to learn new ways of being creative to understand and manage feelings then this is the therapy for you.
