Art for Therapy?

By Staff Writer Matt Own

Like many things, education has evolved over the years. We have certainly moved away from a one size fits all approach. With this in mind, Sandstone Point local resident Michelle Watson has established Moreton Bay Art Therapy.

So what is art therapy? Art therapy uses creative arts processes such as painting, sculpture, drawing and sand play, etc., as a catalyst to recognising and healing life’s challenges. Art therapy enhances emotional well-being in children, adolescents and adults, it inspires, improves quality of life, increases self-esteem and bring hope to the future.

Michelle is so passionate about art therapy that this is now her business. We asked Michelle, who can benefit from art therapy?

“Many people can benefit from art therapy. People who suffer the challenges of physical and/or emotional disability, people suffering from autism spectrum disorder, children with behavioural problems, sufferers of anxiety and depression, people suffering mild cognitive decline, people recovering from stroke or brain injury, those healing from the loss of a loved one and those healing from physical disease and injury.”

Michelle offers art therapy in a one-on-one format or a group environment. In addition, Moreton Bay Art Therapy also offers a range of artistic classes such as watercolour and wine, paint and sip, Mums and Bubs and offers the opportunity to purchase barista coffee, TW tea and tasty platters! How good does that sound?

For further information about Moreton Bay Art Therapy visit, call Michelle on 0417 469 679 , or you can pop into the shop at 1 Benabrow Avenue, Bellara (next to the Big Bun Bakery).
