Counseling & Art-therapy

Counseling and  Art-therapy is working with a client who feels uncomfortable or dissatisfied with their life. 

The client’s motive for entering art-therapy or counseling is usually to get away from pain and discomfort.

Art-therapy can be used in a therapeutic and a non-therapeutic situation. It is an in-depth approach which increase people’s well-being within a safe environment., which means:

  • confidentiality,
  • no-judgement,
  • time and space framed,

Art-therapy is really life enhancing for people of all ages.

In art therapy sessions one can express non-verbally what may be difficult to express verbally, and the art-therapist provides the environment to grow from that expression.

Art-therapy is suitable for a wide range of people.

As an English retired professional active person, who had moved to France to experience a change of life style; I did not expect it to be difficult to integrate into rural life, and not speaking French I was feeling isolated. With help from Florence, being bi-lingual, helping to learn French and building my confidence through Art therapy. Florence went above and beyond to provide a very rewarding experience, was very attentive without being intrusive. Helping me to understand past experiences which were stopping me moving forward in living in my new chosen country. Experiencing Art Therapy with Florence helped me build confidence in myself, which I had lost, and was beyond my expectations
