Who can do art therapy?
The answer is that anyone can.
You do not need to have had experience with the arts, nor do you need to be creative, artistic, or confident in artistic practice to do arts therapy. The focus on each session is on your creative journey.
Why should I do art therapy and not another form of therapy?
If you are seeking a mental health professional but talking is difficult for you, or perhaps you have tried classical psychotherapy and it wasn't a good fit, I encourage you to try creative art therapy which is a non-verbal form of therapy. Of course we do talk but expression is primarily through the creative process.
Is it covered by health insurance?
Currently in France, Art Therapy is not covered by social security but some private mutuelles will offer some sessions. Please ask me about this if you need more information.
