At ATIC we use a variety of psychotherapeutic and counselling practices, including the use of expressive therapies (ART, MUSIC, and PLAY Therapy).
ART THERAPY – using a variety of art based materials in conjunction with verbal communication to express oneself during the therapeutic process.
PLAY THERAPY – through the medium of toys and playing, children can more openly express their thoughts, feelings and reimagining of specific events, providing a safer means for them to receive therapeutic intervention.
MUSIC THERAPY – moving to, creating, singing, or listening to music in a guided therapy session.
Expressive therapies are evidence based, and at ATIC we approach our sessions with a neuroscience perspective.
ATIC’s approach stimulates the diverse areas of the brain, helping neuron development in establishing new connections and pathways. This allows a person to develop their strengths and weaknesses, diversify fields of interest, re-learn information that may have been challenging, form a healthy identity, and reach an overall higher functioning through integrating both hemispheres of the brain.
