There is no right or wrong way to be creative in art therapy. The art therapy space is a place of exploration and acceptance.
It is not necessary to be artistic, know how to draw or have any prior art making experience to gain benefit from therapy sessions.
Please note, during current COVID-19 restrictions, sessions can be held via Telehealth.
Maggie offers secure sessions via video link platform Zoom, which is very easy to use. All you need is a smartphone, laptop, computer or tablet with a web browser and an internet connection. Before your session, Maggie will send a link to your email. Extra time will be allowed during your first session to support you to connect.
Zoom protects content using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES 256).
About Maggie’s sessions:
Individual sessions are available for children and young people.
Maggie also sees adults on an individual basis.
Maggie works with people on a one-on-one basis for as long as they feel the need. Together, you decide on the art modality to use, which can change from visit to visit.
All sessions are private and confidential.
The length of a typical session is one hour in duration. This can be extended, upon agreement with Maggie. All art materials are included in the cost of the session.
At the beginning of the session, you may wish to talk about the issue that is causing you concern. Then, using creative materials, you will make art that expresses the issue, emotion, feeling or concern. In the second part of the session, you will work with Maggie to explore the artwork.
A minimum of four sessions are recommended as it takes time to develop a therapeutic relationship to get to know the process, and each other.
Please contact Maggie for information on pricing and making an appointment.
