According to NHS England, art therapy is a method of helping and healing emotional issues.
Sometimes we may find it difficult to express ourselves or talk about our feelings, and this is where art therapy can support you in your wellbeing journey.
Art therapy can be formalised through therapeutic sessions with a trained professional, helping to heal trauma through the physical act of making art. However, it's important to remember that art can be a more personal process and journey outside of this, so don't let it sway your decision to give it a go - you can make art anytime, anywhere!
This video is a quick introduction to art therapy and this is followed by short exercises in painting and drawing for beginners to inspire your creativity!
