Time to play: therapeutic creativity group for adults
Clay work - all the people we are: exploring self image.
Clay can help aid emotional regulation and benefits various aspects of mental health in adults including depression, anxiety and stress by way of multi-sensory processing.
It allows us to look at, touch, play with and examine our felt experience allowing for deeper insight and understanding of our needs. Creating a representation of our feelings promotes reintegration of parts and encourages a sense of self-cohesion and clarification.
Although it doesn't depend on you having any specific skill other than connection with self, with clay, the "artist" has complete control over what is produced as it bends, folds, and stretches to your will. As it breaks it also gives the opportunity to experiment with the idea of rupture and repair.
So join us in this, our first session, on exploring self image and identity through clay.
