ART THERAPY FOR YOUTHS
“Why do I feel misunderstood?”
“I feel depressed.”
“I want to kill myself but afraid to die.”
“How do I stop self-harm?”
It is common to struggle with expectations of maturity, yet feel like a child.
At 15 to 25 years old, youths experience significant physical, social and mental changes.
Transiting between schools and academic levels, taking high stakes examinations and making definitive choices on career education and training can take a toll on your mental health when there is already so much on your plate to handle.
This phase of life is a constant journey towards finding and defining your self-identity.
Psychological studies show that only when you have attained a stable identity can you go on to achieve the next stage of maturity - forming secure and intimate relationships. Failing to achieve these may result in feelings of loneliness and emotional isolation.
Some of the challenges youths may experience are:
- Stress or anxiety due to bullying or negative friendships;
- Exposure or victims of violence, abuse or social stigma;
- Pressure from family or friends;
- Distressing events such as the divorce of parents or loss of a loved one;
- Anxious and uncertain about the future;
- Transitioning from familial dependence to independence;
- Dealing with relationships and turbulent emotions.
How can art therapy help?
In art therapy, the therapist works in partnership with you to develop solutions to the challenges faced. You are given the freedom to fully express yourself in a safe and non-judgmental space, and begin the process of healing.
Everything that is verbally or visually shared with your therapist are valuable insights that help increase your self-awareness, empower you to take ownership of your life and develop resilience.
You are seen, heard and supported.
But first, you need to take the first step forward to resolve your inner conflicts. Speak with an art therapist to find out how we can help you with tomorrow's challenges, today.
