Expressive Arts is a method that uses different forms of Art in the same session: visual, writing, theater, movement & music, which focuses on the expression and the art-making process, NOT the result.
It helps to discover unconscious patterns or beliefs which can be blocking us in our daily lives and how to transform them in our own resourceful way. As well as identify possible difficulties in emotional management and our inner resources to overcome them.
This is, then, a practical tool for self-exploration and how to bring our inner resources into our everyday lives.
