Do you ever have the experience that you're trying to say how you feel but you don't know how to describe it? Available for us to use in the space is paper, crayons, craft materials, picture cards and clay/playdoh. When your emotions feel complex and multi layered, finding an image which shows the emotion can give us both a powerful insight into how you are feeling. That way, we both get to experience it rather than you trying to tell me about it.
Van Gogh is reputed to have said "art is a lie which helps us to see the truth". This 'truth' can give us both an deeper understanding of you through picture images and help us to see something which is not 'visible' in words.
I also use guided visualization as a creative technique to work with images in your own body - for example 'the knot in the chest' or the 'butterflies in the stomach'. These sorts of guided visualizations help to access information from your own body about how you are feeling or experiencing the world.
