Sometimes, people find it much easier to ‘do’ than ‘say’. At times this can be an act of procrastination or avoidance, but when structured appropriately, ‘doing’ can help people process their feelings and emotions into concepts that are much easier for them to work through. 

Art therapy can simply be described as ‘saying by doing’. It provides a person the opportunity to distract themselves with the crinkle of paper and a streak of a brush while also allowing them to mindfully digest their feelings, attitudes and trauma through a medium of self-expression. 

Feelings and emotions can at times be disorganised, making them hard to verbalise. Art therapy allows participants to communicate their feelings and desires in a non-verbal way, enabling them to work through feelings that may be difficult to address directly and empowering them to organise and map their thoughts. 

Art therapy can help participants embrace a wide range of health-related issues, including general mental wellness; anxiety and depression; trauma; substance abuse; pain management; grief resolution; identity issues; life transitions; and end-of-life challenges. You don’t even need to have any background or skill in art to reap the benefits. 

Art therapy is one of the many programs offered to assist you in your journey to wellness and recovery at St John of God Pinelodge Clinic. If you’re interested in learning more about the treatments available, visit sjog.org.au/Pinelodge or phone 8793 9444.
