Therapy and Counselling with Noa Man

My name is Noa Man and I am a qualified art therapist based in Cardiff, working with children and adults (HCPC registered and a member of the British Association of Art Therapists).

My initial career path was as an artist. I studied and completed a BA degree in art and ceramics design, and have worked as a potter and a ceramics teacher for many years.  As much as I loved, and still love, working in the studio, it was never enough for me.  I was always drawn to additional work and activities with people, and in parallel to my studio work I volunteered and worked in human right organizations, a rape victim support center and a day center for homeless teenagers.

Working with individuals who could benefit so much from mental support motivated me to re-train myself as a professional psychotherapist. I completed a master’s degree in art psychotherapy and have worked as a qualified therapist with different types of clients with very different needs, ages and circumstances, both within the public health care system and within a private practice

About the therapy

The psychotherapy process is led by the client and is tailored to the specific needs of the client. It often requires patience and hard work but it is usually very helpful for dealing with and processing the difficult and/or painful parts of life (including complex disorders and tendencies) and to feel more complete within yourself. It can help with self-esteem, self-confidence, and raise awareness and understanding about yourself and others, relationships, the past, the present, and how life can suit your wishes and needs better.

Contrary to what one may think, art psychotherapy does not require any talent or experience in art whatsoever, and it doesn’t even mean that you need to use art – it’s totally the client’s choice.  Some of the clients do not use art at all, some use it regularly, and everything in between. Nevertheless, using art can be a very powerful tool, both if things cannot be verbalized, and also when they can. More information about art therapy can be found on the British Association of Art Therapists website.
