Art therapy with Sandra

Sandra’s key role is to listen to individuals who come to her for counselling, providing them the opportunity to be heard so that they shift from the position of cancer victim, with all the challenges and anxiety that implies, to the position of protagonist of their own future.

As a Clinical Psychologist, the therapy protocol will depend on the patient’s requirements and his/her state of health. In support therapy, counselling is designed to offer psychological support to the patient, so that he/she is able to use this space for dialogue to talk openly about what is affecting him/her. It is about providing relief and strengthening the strong points of the individual concerned in his/her real, imaginary, and symbolic body. Support therapy can sometimes be replaced by analytical therapy when the individual is motivated by the desire to understand, to change and to prevent disease, by taking care of him/herself. An unveiling takes place, not without difficulty, but with courage and determination. Finally, as a qualified artistic mediation therapist, patients are also offered the opportunity to take part in therapeutic art workshops, using drawing, writing and film as media. This gives patients the chance to meet and talk to each other around these activities, in the presence of a psychologist attune to the effects that words can have on each individual, with the aim of establishing a bond, a shared understanding and escaping the feeling of loneliness whilst maintaining the individuality of everyone.
