Art psychotherapy is a group therapy approach that uses creative outlets like painting, collaging and clay work for therapeutic purposes. The sessions provide a chance to express repressed emotions in a safe and controlled environment, improve self-esteem and discovering previously hidden aspects within themselves.  This process promotes a greater understanding of one’s emotions, allowing for positive change to take place.

Our Art psychotherapy programs are based around small groups who work closely together over a period of 3 months. The main focus is on developing personal tools to deal with emotions and finding hope and happiness through expressive activities. As a charitable foundation, Intisars foundation provides these sessions for free to all its beneficiaries.
