About

At Vlinder Expressive Arts Therapy we believe that art heals, taking a transpersonal approach, this therapy targets mind, body and spirit within the client. Art Therapists use a range of skills, utilising many fundamental psychological principles, including cognitive behaviour and somatic responses. Art Therapists also use extensive knowledge of the art materials to support client empowerment. By looking at their art work as an expression of themselves client’s emotions transform. They can begin to develop the skills to overcome personal challenges and build resilience and resources within themselves to address what is needed.
We offer a client centred and strength based approach which allows us to meet the client where they are at within their healing journey. We offer individual and group art therapy with the support of other holistic modalities for children, teenagers, adults, and elders.
Since art therapy may be a completely new therapy approach to some, feel free to contact us to ask questions and find out if it is the right therapy for you. The best way to determine this, is to give art therapy a try. We look forward to support you in the best way we can.
