"I am responsible for my own well-being, my own happiness. The choices and decisions I make regarding my life directly influence the quality of my days."
Friends and Relationship Art Therapy
It is our friends/significant others we often choose to be around.
We can encounter issues with our friendship when:
- we have life changing situations such as new relationships forming
- intimacy or distance
- separation or divorce
- we have children/parenting issues
- poor communication
- we feel that one friend is perceived to be doing all the taking
- conflicts or perceived conflicts
- repetitive destructive habits or patterns
- we fall ill or develop a life changing situation
- differences in the relationship
- we have to move away for other reasons such as a job, emigration etc.
- uncertainty about commitment
- life transitions/changes
- mental health issues/physical illness
- issues around work that may be affecting the relationship
- family issues
A commitment to weekly or bi-weekly sessions is encouraged to maintain the continuity and focus of the work.
Whatever your ongoing friendship/relationship issues, they can be enhanced by safely looked at, using Art Therapy
Friends can work out issues by communicating using the art material and the Art Therapist, as well as with each other.
Art Therapy can offer a safe space to discuss and explore the issues and look into themselves to solve them together.
Both parties should be open to change for relationships to improve. Talking may not be enough, or too much. Art Therapy is non-verbal.
Once an appointment is made the first session can be used to find out what you want from Art Therapy and to talk about your situation. if Art Therapy is for you both, then we can work out how many sessions that will be needed.
The cost is the same as individual therapy.
The session time is 50 minutes, just like the individual sessions
Due to couples work involving two people, the following information is important to clarify at the beginning of therapy. In order for counseling information to be released, both members of the couples must provide their written authorization. Since the couple is the client, one member’s desire to have information released is not sufficient. Secondly, if we decide that some individual sessions may help the process of couples therapy, what you say in those individual sessions will be considered to be a part of the couples therapy. Therefore, be advised that this information will be discussed in our joint sessions.
