Art therapist • 3 - 5 years experience • United Arab Emirates
What inspires and interests me are a few things from creating my own oil paintings (because I very well know the cathartic relief it provides), as well as having the ability to help my clients through life’s adversities by building their resilience and strengths and providing them with positive coping strategies. I relish the moments when I integrate yoga therapy along with art therapy in my workshops. What makes me, me is the fact that I integrate art into my psychology practice because art has access to parts of the brain that “talk therapy” doesn’t. It has been scientifically proven and I witness it with my clients on a daily basis. I love what I do and I think that is one of the biggest motivations and inspiration that you actually love what you do.
