Artistic Issues

Industry Therapy

Therapy is like enrolling in a course where you are the subject matter. Here is the place where you can take the time to explore who you are, what you feel and why you do what you do. It is one place where strange thoughts are acceptable. Have a sudden impulse? Say it. Flash to a certain memory? Talk about it. The phrase somethings are better left unsaid doesn't apply here so speak freely and you might learn something interesting. Bring in dreams, daydreams and fantasies, especially those of your character or therapy. People often have more of this material when they're in process. This can be incredibly rich to explore. Grow your happiness, intensify your connections, reach your potential. Allow yourself to seek the character and your own inner self.

 

Recognize that if you're seeking your character or a change, you can reach for a deeper thruth. If you're curious, teachable and motivated to do some work, it can be one of the most challenging and rewarding journeys you ever take.

 

Treatment modalities for artistic therapy:

 

Mindfulness Training - learning "in the moment" techniques that enhance peace and calm, which can reduce and prevent apprehensiveness.

 

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy -  joining somatic therapy and psychotherapy into a comprehensive method for healing this disconnection between body and mind. 

 

Brainspotting – helps you approach trauma-related thoughts, feelings, and situations in a safe environment while reprocessing the information and rewiring the neural pathways in the brain.

 

Hypnotherapy - an altered state of awareness, perception or consciousness that is used, by licensed and trained doctors or masters prepared individuals, for treating psychological or physical problems in a highly relaxed state.

 

Individual Psychotherapy - provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and nonjudgmental. 

 

Breathwork -  a powerful, safe, and gentle breathing technique which releases stress from the body and increases your energy level for the purpose of experiencing more ease and pleasure in your life.
