How Does Art therapy work?

         We naturally look for ways to heal ourselves and survive. As with all types of therapy the aim is to support each individual to heal ‘themselves’, i.e. the therapist doesn’t write a prescription or give ‘answers’; the art therapist is a support mechanism.

         “The organism, in its normal state, moves toward its own fulfilment, toward self-regulation and an independence from external control.”  (Rogers, 1980:119)
