I read your post and it’s very interesting! I’m a 27 year old Psychologist and I worked with kids during my practice. It’s amazing how much you can get from a drawing, it seems it helped you a lot! It helped me too very much. I’m not an art therapist, I’m just a Psychologist but I find this therapy very useful. I also practice it myself, I mean, I like to paint the Adults Coloring Books, and I like the technical drawing, it’s something that I really enjoy doing it, it relaxes me, and makes me forget about all the stress of the day, eventhough I’m not very good at it.
I’m working on my blog, it’s very simple, it’s about painting and drawing and its relationship with Psychology, also about some material’s review, and other stuff, I’ll leave it here if you want to take a look!

I am always amazed how much you can deduce from child’s drawing. For example, one of my clients (7 years old girl) had serious sleeping problem and would not sleep separate from the parents. When I asked her to draw her family, she drew herself in the center holding hands with parents. Interestingly, the parents at her drawing didn’t have legs… I started thinking about this and it was obvious to me that the child didn’t sleep because she was afraid that parents will walk away when she is asleep. After digging deeper I learned from parents that the child stayed with grandparents at the age 4 till 6 months, because parents had to go to Asia for business. The child obviously had attachment problems and after few sessions the child started sleeping fine. If not for drawing sessions, it could have required many sessions and extensive assessments to identify the problem.
Best Regards,

Tali

You’re right! I noticed that every time I see the color blue, I find it soothing. At first I thought the ‘soothing’ feeling is because blue is my favorite color, until I stumbled on your blog.

I’m usually very put off by people who hang crystals and such. I think of it as hokey medicine but when you talk about breaking up the light so as to allow in different colors then that makes sense to me. I’m happy you added that little bit in there. 🙂

Have you got a website that I can visit?
I am an artist who has just started selling work. I am interested in Holistic Healing and Therapy and my focus is to use my art to reach people who need to feel better emotionally or spiritually. My inspirations come from Nature mainly, but I love mystical themes such as Angels and Goddesses. I am trying to research as much as I can about colour therapy to use it in my work, and I hope to also do a course in the near future. Thanks for this article, it was very informative. If anyone is interested in my work, please visit my website:

I always wear colour and can never wear black,it simply drains me and i feel so heavy and stagnant. I wear the colours that i feel, whatever that means, I can put on a dress and take it off immediately because the colour just doesn’t feel right, despite it being the right colour a few days ago. I love deep colours but there are days i need soft pastels and other days lots of bold and other days just the one constant colour and ……i am so looking forward to the upcoming articles

thank you Maryxx

Yellow is my “power” color. Whenever I create a Mandala and process it afterward. I look for the yellow to determine its strength, weakness, placement, fragmentation, etc.

I forgot to add that four years ago when I was going through a very bad state of depression I couldn’t sleep properly at night. As it was time to paint my room again, I chose a light perriwinkle colour. I was really surprised because after a few days I started sleeping really well and I started feeling relaxed and calm. It is awesome how colour can help!

I really liked it. I think that it is very important to spread the word out about Color Therapy and many other kinds of therapies in order to heal the body and the mind in a holistic way. I am really looking forward to reading the following articles! Thanks
