Art Therapy with Liam Plant

What is Art Therapy?

Art Therapy provides a creative and expressive means of working through issues which may be brought to counselling and psychotherapy.

Art materials are excellent tools for expressing feelings or accessing unconscious processes which are difficult to put into words. Participants can use art therapy as a means of self discovery, psychotherapy, healing or meditation. Participants cannot ‘fail’ in art therapy and can choose how much or how little to share with the therapist. No artistic skill or experience is necessary. Liam is here to help people to discover and use their creativity in dealing with stress and in addressing difficult issues.

Non-Managerial Supervision and Staff Support

Would you like ongoing support for your work in a confidential setting? Working within health care settings can be challenging at times and it can be valuable to have personal, non-managerial support outside the work setting. Liam is available to offer support and non-managerial supervision to staff who may be experiencing stress or difficulties in their work or who just need to talk through their concerns in a safe, confidential setting.

I have been a practicing Psychotherapist /Art therapist / in Dublin since 1985. I am an accredited member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am a State Registered Art psychotherapist with the U.K. Health and Care Professions Council, a founding member of the Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists.

I am also a Gestalt Therapist and accredited Counselling Supervisor. I supervise a wide range of therapists, counsellors and psychotherapists.

I work with individuals in private practice and with groups attending Cluain Mhuire Mental Health Services (St. John of God Services).

I am an integrative therapist, which means I use a variety of approaches in my work which I discuss with clients so that they may choose a therapy process which is best suited to them. I practice mindfulness myself and I integrate mindfulness into my therapy work.

The first consultation is free of charge.
