Meet Eleanor Betts, Art Therapist at Rainbow Counselling, Sheffield

Introducing Rainbow’s Art Therapist, Eleanor Betts who works primarily with young people aged 13-20 and adults who are receiving cancer care.

Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses creative ways to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences. Sometimes it is hard to find the words to express ourselves; perhaps our experiences and feelings are too difficult to talk about, or the words don’t seem like enough. Art making and the use of images can be a helpful way to help express what may feel inexpressible.

Art making also has physical and psychological benefits. It can feel soothing, reduce anxiety and help develop a sense of well-being and self-esteem.

You don’t need to be ‘good at art’ or have any prior experience of art making. Read more from Eleanor’s Counsellor profile >
