Art Therapy and Expressive Arts Therapy provide a powerful way of working to explore emotions and feelings and you dont need to be good at art to benefit!
Chris Moody is a qualified Art Therapist, registered with the HCPC and BAAT.
She is currently working towards purchasing a Bowtop Caravan so she can deliver Creative Therapy in a very magical space indeed...
If you’ve been in any newsagent, supermarket or bookshop recently you will have seen the big trend for ‘Art Therapy’ colouring-in books… …well that’s just one end of the rainbow of Art Therapy (somewhat frowned on by the purists!). There’s a colourful spectrum of work that art therapists undertake with clients that can make a huge difference to people’s lives.
Occasionally people I have worked with have found art therapy to be a creative alternative to going for counselling. The way art therapy works provides gentle support to uncover feelings too deep to be easily spoken of and allows the client to go (and grow) at his or her own pace. Clients may have a wide range of difficulties, disabilities or diagnoses. These might include emotional, behavioural or mental health problems, learning or physical disabilities, life-limiting conditions, neurological conditions and physical illnesses. But equally some might come with no specific need other than the desire to find out more about themselves and the choices they make in life.
Central to my way of working is the belief that the client has the answers to his or her own questions and problems and it is very rewarding to travel alongside and help make these discoveries. Often the presence of a fellow traveller is all that is needed to unearth what has become lost, and free what has become stuck.
Now the Bowtop has become a reality look out for it at Amerton Farm, near Stafford. From Sunday 18th March I will be there as Klara Plumtree, offering 10-minute Me-Time slots,
20-minutes Me-Time slots or
an hour's exploration into anything you wish to bring to understand yourself or your situation more fully. We will work together in the beautiful little bowtop, away from the rest of the world! Call on the off-chance or ring me and leave a message - 07562374277
Step out… …step up into the Bowtop and let’s go!
Private consultations are available as well as group work
