Art Therapy at Oscailt

Art Therapy with Margherita La Gioia

I am a professionally qualified Art Therapist and hold a Master’s Degree in Art Therapy from Crawford College, Cork Institute of Technology. I am fully registered with the Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists, (I.A.C.A.T.) and have successfully completed the Garda Vetting Clearance, as well as the Children First Training.

Previous to this, I hold a professional Certificate in Psychology, a Certificate in Special Needs Assisting, a Certificate in Neurolinguistic Programming and a Degree in Artistic Studies. I work as an art therapist in Dublin with children, teenagers and adults in educational settings and in mental health services, using art to support individuals though their challenges, fostering self-agency and empowerment. My clinical experience includes also art therapy in acute psychiatry.

Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses the medium of art to enable people of all ages to access feelings and thoughts that may be difficult to be expressed verbally. I adopt a person-centred approach in which I value the uniqueness of each individual, their difficulties and strengths, in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. I recognise the importance for all individuals to be able to integrate mind and body in their life experiences.

Art therapy can address issues such as: anxiety, depression, autism, behavioural and emotional difficulties, trauma, bullying, grief and loss. In my art therapy practice, I use a holistic approach and include mindfulness, meditation and gentle movement into the sessions. I am originally from Italy and can provide individual art therapy sessions both in English and Italian.

If you’d like to reach out and book an appointment, I would be very glad to hear from you. Please see my contact information below:
