Louise Gartland, Art Psychotherapist & Creative Arts Therapy Supervisor.Cert., BA., MSc., MIACAT, MNIGAT, MBAAT Therapy: Louise is a trained, insured and Garda vetted art psychotherapist offering a therapy service using art/creativity at its core. Through the use of art in the psychotherapeutic process it is hoped that the client can explore a variety of issues in their lives. If someone has difficulty expressing or understanding what is troubling them, the use of art can allow these issues to surface so that a better understanding can be gained through the symbolism of the art work made. No art experience is required and the art is not interpreted by the therapist, rather, it is explored by client and therapist together. Clients services include children, adolescents, adults and families. Supervision: Louise is a creative arts therapy supervisor who is trained to work with non-arts therapists/trainees and arts therapists/trainees of any modality.  Contact: louise@artonomy.ie or call 0872993773
