Can the Creative Arts Therapies Help You?
Moving and sounding, dancing and singing – these basic human experiences can be fun as well as therapeutic. When used in psychotherapy, these ways of expression are powerful agents of change. Because voice and dance are the most fundamental of the arts, involving a direct expression of one’s self through one’s body, these are each an especially powerful medium for therapy.
The arts therapies let us access more of the whole self. Sound and movement are non-verbal modes of expressing. They engage the right brain and can enhance talk therapy. Through the arts, we reach and express deeper levels of ourselves… the subconscious. Accessing and understanding our subconscious patterns allows us to release bound up feelings and the old stories we hold on to.
