Individual sessions at the Melbourne Art Therapy Studio allow people to explore issues relevant to their personal development and process of change with the support and guidance of a fully qualified, experienced art therapist.
All sessions are catered to the individual who is actively involved in setting therapeutic goals. In many cases the initial stages of therapy you may be assisted in becoming comfortable with the artistic process. You need not make art if you don't want to.
Individual sessions are suitable for all age groups.
Each session is 1 hour, but 1.5 hours is recommended for the initial session.
Individual sessions can address short term goals or extend over a long period.
Sessions usually take place at the Melbourne Art Therapy Studio, but in cases where it is difficult for you to attend, we can come to you.
