COLOUR, HEALING AND CREATIVITY

A

different way

to re-discover your true

WORDS HELEN BRADSHAW, Art Therapist

H

ello curious soul. Have you ever wondered “who am I? What makes me, ME?” We are all survivors of many things and through some experiences we lose touch with our true essence; the unique colours that make up our authentic selves. You know that sensation you feel when you hear upsetting or shocking news? The feeling of energy draining out of you, like part of you is washing away… like your colour is draining from your mind, body and soul and often you can be told “you look as pale as a ghost”. Metaphorically it is as if you have lost some of your colours; the colours that describe your authentic vital energy and essence, that makes you the unique individual that you are. Very often, we experience difficulties in revitalising those colours with just words. This is the power of art therapy: its ability to help you tap into and explore your experiences using all your

senses; not just your words. Slashes of deep red splashed across soft hues of violet and pink, may to an ‘artist’s eye’ be incongruent to what they perceive as pleasing, however in art therapy, this is valued as pure unadulterated expression! Expression that has been discovered and released from deep within and is uniquely emotive to the expressor. Perhaps it is physical or emotional pain, stress or fear. It may be frustration of feeling stuck in a relationship or job that no longer serves you or parts of yourself that may have been forgotten. It could be a desire to increase confidence, personal development and to truly understand and connect to your true essence. It is intuitively what you need to release or expand, in that moment in time. There are no expectations or judgements in this space. The meaning of the colours, shapes and textures

colours

unleashed are ‘truly’ known only to you. As an art therapist, I hold a safe and inspiring space for you to witness what lies within, outside of you in the art, sound or movement; to guide you on an explorative journey of discovery that is uniquely yours. I work with you to make the unknown, known and make sense of your insights gained, stimulating new perspectives and transforming old patterns of behaviour and ways of being that no longer serve. From these new perspectives, we are energised and able to connect to a deeper understanding and acceptance of self and celebrate the richness that lies within with more clarity, confidence and self-love. From this place our true colours are ignited, helping us to discover our place in the world. Is it your time to do things differently? www.growththroughart.com.au
