Can I just receive counselling without making art  


Can I talk and try art therapy when I need? 

YES. Your session can be talking or combined counselling and art therapy. If you need any guidance, art materials will be introduced so that you can be familiarised at your pace to explore them to understand your process and emotions through creative expressions. 

Do I need artistic talent to benefit from art therapy? 

No at all. Clients are not required to have any art-related experience or talent to benefit from the creative arts therapies. All levels of experience are welcome!
