Art therapy is an evidence-based mental health profession that seeks to improve mental wellness and actualize human potential. At Solace, our team is comprised of professional art psychotherapists in Singapore that specialize in dealing with youth, pre-teens, adolescents, and adults with complex trauma. In each of your art therapy sessions, our experienced art therapists will be present and working together with you to focus on your specific concerns and better your mental health.

Through the use of art making, we are able to offer a wide range of effective and expressive mental wellness services such as workshops, individual art psychotherapy sessions and group therapy sessions.

Do note that art therapy is part of psychological services that is similar to counseling services. The key difference is that art is used as a tool of communication during sessions to facilitate verbal and non-verbal communications. While counseling and psychotherapy may be closely related, the two are separate and distinct mental health professions.
