The non-verbal language and its therapeutic use
The term “non-verbal language” refers to any expression or exchange form that does not require the use of words.
This language is not based on idioms, but on other types of expression such as movements and gestures (corporal non-verbal language), music (acoustic non-verbal language) or drawing, painting and sculpture (plastic non-verbal language).
Used with words, this language enables an authentic expression of one’s personality.
Used for therapeutic purposes, the non-verbal language enables the person to directly access his/her resources and to go through a deep work on her/himself as well as to develop creative and durable solutions.
This form of therapy, commonly known as “art-therapy”, integrates psychotherapeutic techniques into the creative process. It aims at supporting people in transitional situations or persons who are undergoing a process of change or a crisis, and it is a valuable support for patients suffering from psychic or psychosomatic troubles.
Concentrating on the creative process stimulates the person to express with movements, colours and shapes what cannot be expressed in words. That also leads to a deeper self-reflection and allows to question one’s own life.
Basically, we are specialized in supporting people wishing to feel good again in their own body. Nevertheless, we also accompany anyone requiring a non-verbal accompaniment for other reasons, such as (other types of) life crisis, processes of change or development of self-confidence.
