Art Therapy is expressive art activity based on psychotherapy, facilitating self-exploration and understanding to help clients' internal growth and well-being.
Using imagery, color and shape as part of this creative therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be difficult to articulate.
Art therapy is a tool that therapists use to help clients interpret, express, and resolve their emotions and thoughts. Clients work with an art therapist to explore their emotions, understand conflicts or feelings that are causing them distress, and use art to help them find resolutions to those issues.

Individual Art Therapy session
An individual session is for someone who wants to have art therapy sessions privately and also for the client who is needed to.
Facing Challenges makes many people feel overwhelmed and often they don’t know how to identify and communicate exactly what’s happening.
Sometimes, asking them what’s wrong can lead to frustration, along with even more negative feelings.
Instead, art therapy acknowledges that verbal language is only one form
of communication, and it’s not the most natural one for everybody.

REVIEWS FROM CLIENTS
(Art therapy for PPD)
(Art therapy for PPD)
It wasn't easy to save time for the session as a mom
of young kids but it was much worth it to try.
What I liked most was meeting other moms who have
suffered from PPD and I felt safe with all the group members. One more thing I like about Sunny Art Therapy is she gives me the chance to see myself before & after the session.
It was much better and funnier than I thought.
Especially, working with other moms and sharing experiences and thoughts were the best part of the session.
Now I can see myself in a better way and know what I need to try harder. I definitely recommend PPD session for New moms!
I had Art therapy in the USA before and It wasn't bad
but I found Sunny Art Therapy is more comfortable for
me. She understood my situation better and I felt
warmth from her even though it was online.
I would love to have group or couple session with my

S, C (USA)
(Individual Art therapy)
I've been seeing a Psychiatrist for a few years and I didn't believe in counselling or art therapy much until I have an initial consultation with Sunny.
I decided to have an individual session with Sunny and it helped my anxiety and depression.
Art Therapy is not magic that will make you a better person at once. However, If you trust your therapist (Sunny is the one for me) and push yourself hard to look into your problems, then the magic will happen to you like, as it did happen to me.
(Individual Art therapy)
Group Art Therapy for Teens
A: I liked crafting and fun things with all friends.
B: I felt special when I was in a Group Art therapy session.
Because Sunny listened to me and always make sure
I am doing ok.
C: I don't like drawing or painting but this was fun because
at Art Therapy we used all different materials and I could
express how I feel and who I am.
Couple Art Therapy
& Counselling (USA)
We have been in Couple counselling before but didn't work much.
However, Couple Art Therapy from Sunny Art Therapy worked for us!
Doing creative things together is different but better.
We didn't have to talk to each other when we were not feeling like
to do. However, we are still able to express our feelings.
Now, we learned how to communicate properly to keep our relation-ship in good place and will keep practicing for our bright future.
Group Art therapy for PPD
I would like to thank Sunny first because she gave me
a chance to join a group where I could be myself.
Even though I wasn't able to join at the beginning she never
left me alone. she always includes me.
For the first couple weeks, it was interesting and fun after
that I was getting serious about the session and being more honest. At the last session, I saw myself thinking positively.
Try it! you wouldn't regret it!
Group Art therapy for PPD
Before the session started, I expected to be treated from what
I was suffering and I needed it. In my opinion, the session was
more close to healing art which was more comfortable and let
me look into myself and situations. Then I realized only I could
I wouldn't be able to realize without Sunny and other group members' help.
Most I liked about the session is connecting with other moms
who has the same or similar situation as me.
I would recommend Art therapy for PPD and hope many
people can reach out for this opportunity.
Eco Art Therapy (UK)
I loved Eco Art Therapy session with Sunny.
Walking in the park, feeling nature and creating a piece of art, all of these are delightful.
The most lovely part of the session was not only expressing
my feelings by making artwork but also physical activities
such as walking and feeling the nature.
I strongly recommend Eco Art Therapy with Sunny.
Eco Art Therapy
for children/ teens
Eco Art therapy was so much fun.
I don't like art classes or drawing because I am not good at art but this was different! I didn't have to be good at drawing or painting.
Sunny made things funnier all the time! I like her.
She listened to me and look into my concerns together then she helped me.
