ART THERAPY AND COVID-19 - HOW DOES IT WORK?

CATA teams have paused most of our programs due to COVID-19.  We have moved our Art Therapy sessions online and continue to work with our clients. But is it possible to facilitate Art Therapy virtually? CATA has been running sessions with our clients fonline and although it is certainly a different way of working, we are maintaining creative ties with our clients.

So what does an online session involve? During an online session you might choose to use your own art materials such as crayons, pencils, pens, or paints. Or perhaps use images from magazines to create a collage. In addition, there is opportunity to use these images and narrative as metaphors. This is such a powerful way of communicating your experiences and remain connected through isolation and these trying times. 

You may also like to keep a visual journal in between sessions, to reflect on your session or what comes up for you between sessions. This gives you a focus and a point of reference between online sessions.  The possibilities are endless. For those of you who are more tech savvy, you may even explore through creative software to explore your thoughts. 

The important thing to know is the guidance and support from our qualified Art Therapists is imperative in these online sessions. Creating rapport and trust through virtual means is possible and it may be an opportunity to try out what Art Therapy is all about from the comfort of your home. 

Our ONLINE ART THERAPY sessions include:

  • Qualified Art Therapist
  • $80 for 1 x 60 minute session ( or $110 for 90 minute sessions)
  • $65 for 1 x 60 minute session, with Concession (or $90 for 90 minute sessions)

We recommend at least 5 sessions of art therapy.  For a person to grow, they need an environment that provides them with authenticity, acceptance and empathy.  Art Therapists are able to deliver this with a person centred approach in a supportive and personalised way.
