Art Therapy

Art has been a part of our life from the beginning of our species. Creativity and its expression have a great impact on your mental health and self-growth. Creating art has been linked to a more relaxed state of mind and an increase in a good mood.
Art is an outlet for emotions and it can be a powerful tool for communication.

You do not need to be an artist to try Art Therapy!

Creating art is not our usual means of communication that is why some of the creations and interpretations that you might come up with may surprise you and give you a different perspective on your life. It is harder to hide emotions when we try a new way of expressing ourselves.

Thinking in patterns, colors, and strength of touch on the paper can be and new and interesting experience for you.

I use Art Therapy especially for increasing positive body image or to connect more to different parts of yourself. Some of the exercises may include:

● Drawing your vulva (we are trying to uncover your attitude and connection to it)
● Drawing your idea of self-esteem
● Drawing your family doing something (we are trying to check your connection with your family members)
● Drawing your perfect house (what do you want and need from your future and your relationship)
● Lifeline/map (a project which is supposed to show the most important events in your life in a form of a map/road or a line)
● Drawing your anxiety/depression/state of mind

And many others…

Do not be discouraged if you haven’t used many artistic supplies before, getting creative is something more than making things look nice it is about sending a message. It is also a way of transferring emotions onto the paper on canvas or whatever you have chosen as your base.

In therapy, we would try to interpret your creation by going deeper into your psyche. It can be often easier to put your difficult emotions or memories on blank paper rather than to talk about them at first.

Channeling your bad emotions is a powerful technique that can be complemented by for example putting your work way too mentally and visibly distance yourself from the negativity which was channeled.

There are multiple reasons for contacting a Psychosexual Therapist instead of other clinicians:

RELATIONSHIP ISSUES

If you are reading this there is a good chance that you are experiencing some kind of problems in your marriage or relationship.

  • Lack of connection?
  • Lack of trust?
  • Constant arguments?
  • Problems in the bedroom and with intimacy?
  • Difficult life situations?

All of those problems can be addressed during the treatment. Regain the enjoyment of being within a relationship instead of just bearing it!

During sessions with couples, I use methods such as the Gottman Method, intimacy exercises which are supposed to promote trust, openness and connection and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for couples. The meetings will challenge your beliefs and put you in the shoes of your partner so that you can understand each other better and overcome your differences.

What is Art Therapy?

To better understand

It is important to know that this type of therapy is like any other counselling consultation. However, it focuses on problems that are connected to your sexuality.

There is also no sexual activity involved during the process!

Other Matters To Discuss With Sex Therapist

  • Porn/sex Addiction
  • Kink
  • World Of Bdsm
  • Fetishes
  • Sex Toys And Accessories
  • Polygamy
  • Menopausal Issues

Hopefully, that explains what sex therapy is and helps you to establish if you need it.
Remember! Sex, intimacy, and pleasure mean something different to everyone! The diversity in our desires, wants and dislikes is what makes it so wonderful but also more complicated. When you give up on the idea of being ‘just normal’ and what is expected you can start discovering what you really want as an independent sexual being!
