The Therapist in My Canvas - Psychology Tomorrow Magazine

The Therapist in My Canvas - Psychology Tomorrow Magazine | Therapy | Scoop.it

"The intensity of certain emotions, the rawness of certain experiences and the profundity of certain thoughts touch those aspects of our being that lie beyond the realms of expression in words. Certain situations are so intense and deep seated that it becomes difficult to simply explain them. They are to be felt, experienced and acknowledged in their own form.

 

"That is what a blank canvas can help establish and bolster."
