Services
Psychological healthcare services delivered by compassionate, personable and professional practitioners.

Art therapy/ Art psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication. Clients who are referred to an Art Therapist need not have previous experience or skill in art; the Art Therapist is not primarily concerned with making an aesthetic or diagnostic assessment of the client's image. The overall aim of art therapy is to enable a client to effect change and growth on a personal level through the use of art materials in a safe and facilitating environment.

The relationship between the therapist and the client is of central importance, but Art Therapy differs from other psychological therapies in that it is a three-way process between the client, the therapist and the image or artefact. Thus it offers the opportunity for expression and communication and can be particularly helpful to people who find it hard to express their thoughts and feelings verbally. 

Art Therapists have a considerable understanding of art processes underpinned by a sound knowledge of therapeutic practice, and work with both individuals and groups in a variety of residential and community based settings. Art therapy is a diverse profession and the practitioners offering art therapy from Psychology Sussex are fully registered with their appropriate governing body.
