Art Therapy

 We are Tony and Lulina art psychotherapists, bonded through our passion to transform lives through art. In 2021 we did a workshop with the girls and now 2 years after the call us their aunties. We were trapped by the energy and the creativity each of them have. Little by little we have learned to read their art, listen to their eyes and contain and signify their stories. 

As therapy has advanced the girls have acquired a more realistic self-concept and  have worked with understanding and empathy for themselves. They work in their self-image so their self-steam improves.

Our workshop allows them to work with the conduct specifically without touching in a direct way the person. Adding art to a therapeutic session allows  the unconscious processes and the preconscious in the artistic creationy they work at. 

Using emotions as messengers that inform them of their needs motivates them to interact. Their thought reflects their emotions and their perception of a given situation, as they understand their emotions and thoughts, they have been training their creativity and emotional intelligence that allows them to be conscious of their own emotions as well of others and capacitates them to regulate them.

We have been analyzing the life and work of different artists which has allowed them to work their empathy, joy and storytelling, they have found a way to relate with the characteristics of the artists and their own reality.

We have taught them mindfulness as we think that in this world of technology, its an amazing resource so they can tune into the present and enjoy every moment. 

They have learned that everybody is able to learn how to see and understand their story, understanding it from their curiosity, empathy and acceptance.

Having this opportunity has made great changes in their own story and leads them to construct a better image of themselves so they can own their future.
