Although it is possible to participate in art therapy in person, there is also the option to do it online. These days you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home to get the help you need — online art therapy is more accessible than ever before.
Depending on your preference, there are options for one-to-one sessions or even Art therapy workshops, where you come together with like-minded individuals while a therapist guides you all through the process. This can help you get past any anxieties about one-to-one sessions and connect you to a supportive community. The choice, of course, is entirely up to you.
Remember that there is no one-size-fits-all aid to mental health: each individual is different and our struggles are also varied, which can make it a bit tricky to find the right approach. So, it is a good idea to keep an open mind and try a couple different options until finding the one that feels right for you. Also, keep in mind that in some cases, Art therapy could be combined with other types of therapy in order to fit your particular needs, so you don’t necessarily have to commit exclusively to this type of psychotherapy.
