A very warm welcome to The Small Studio.
My name is Sarah Edmonds. I’m a qualified Art Psychotherapist.
My therapeutic approach through using art materials is profoundly relational. No two people are the same so no one way of working will suit everyone.
We are all products of the environments and experiences we have been exposed to and positively or negatively these factors imprint our life’s ongoing narrative.
Sometimes revisiting these experiences can be an enlightening way to engender self-reflection and personal awareness. Working psychodynamically, unconscious material can be expressed non-verbally through the artwork. This can then be viewed together through the triangular relationship of Art Therapy – the connection and shared viewing of the art between the client and the therapist.
Working with art materials is often most useful when words may fail…
