Exprecious is about Action Method Therapy and Therapy through Dreams
Exprecious is the combination of "Expression" and "Precious".
Exprecious is about Expressive Arts Therapy. But what does that really mean? Not being able to express yourself creates anger and frustration. Denying feelings does not make them disappear. Exprecious' aim is to give you the keys to express your feelings. The way to reach that aim is personal to each individual.
Exprecious offers Expressive Arts and Psychodrama. Instead of using only words, you will have the opportunity to express yourself through the arts (drama, plastic arts, music and more)
Expressive Arts Therapy is a treatment. That means that the Expressive Arts Therapist is formed on one or more artistic media, such as:
• Visual and Plastic Arts
• Dance and movement
Sometimes, words fall short to express how you feel. Starting with your story, giving a structure to your narration to express some deep feelings, can be very difficult. Screaming, moving, painting or shaping, a role play…are examples of techniques that can be used during our sessions.
Abused children often have difficulties expressing what happened to them. The pain may be too hard or too difficult to express using the spoken word. Through drawings, paintings, shaping, puppets, games …a child can express him/herself without the need to speak. By doing so he feels safer and reassured. You do not need to have difficulties to express yourself to find that non verbal techniques are often easier to express your feelings.
Exprecious balances between two processes:
During the therapy the patient will reconnect to his inner self through creation e.g. make a painting, move, and play a role.
He will experience more than just talking and thinking. This is one of the reasons why Expressive Arts Therapy is considered as experimental or the therapy of DOING.
Reflecting on this experience is a valuable tool to Art Therapists to restore the balance. The Art Therapist proposes individual sessions, group sessions, couples therapy, family therapy. Exprecious' goal is to accompany you towards expression, vision and transformation. During that inner trip you will meet yourself in a safe and creative way.
