Bibliotherapy

Love Books

Bibliotherapy is a Creative Arts Therapies modality, that involves storytelling or the reading of specific texts with the purpose of healing. It uses an individual's relationship to the content of books and poetry and other written words as therapy. Bibliotherapy is often combined with writing therapy. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression. A 3 year follow up study has suggested that the results are long-lasting.

What to expect in a Bibliotherapy session?

That is a difficult one to answer expect there to be books either read by you, to you or with you is the safest way to cover everything.

A story book or poem are the mediums used to work through anything unhelpful or hurtful in your life. It depends entirely on what you want to engage with or interact with in that moment, its like being swept away in an airy fairy journey into your own imagination, is the best way of describing it
