As a professional mental health counsellor and art therapist I have been thinking about a lot how I could offer help to those that feel despaired or have difficulties with coping with the stress and the solitude of the (voluntary) quarantine and of the separation from the loved ones in the present situation caused by the spread of the coronavirus.

Two possibilities came to my mind, that I will realize from Monday.

Since I have been dealing with art therapy I got acquainted with a lot of creative people  whom joined creation helped find their emotional balance again and flourish their hidden capacities. At the same time I heard often that during the hurry of everyday life they don’t have the time for drawing or painting, although they have a deep desire to do so.

For this reason it came to my mind that we could use the opportunities of the long hours at home in these difficult days to recharge ourselves and support each other with joint creating.

Creating sets us free, helps forget the difficulties of our situation and feel the joy of life, that we  all really need.

In order to support this I advertise a 14 Day Creative Challenge starting tomorrow.

Details:

  1. I create a Facebook event in the group ErnArt – Coaching and Counseling in English, where I upload every morning at 09:00 a.m. a topic for the day, in relation to which we will make creations.
  2. You can use any technique, tool and material, you can draw, paint, use clay or create a montage, collage or an installation, it may contain only of a few lines or it can be a real masterpeace, but the only task is to make a creation in relation to the topic and upload its photo under the event with or without a comment.
  3. Gather inspiration from the others’ photo, and support them with your comments!
  4. Continue making creations for two weeks and feel the energy deriving from your art and the unity with others!
  5. If you can join later or have to leave out a day or two, don’t worry you, can make it up afterwards!

Besides the above I also help individuals who feel the need of talking to a professional in the framework of mental health counselling and life coaching sessions. due to the present situation I decided to offer for 50% of the regular fee a limited number of online helping conversation and life–coaching sessions. The fee of these sessions: 20 EUR / 50 min.

If you feel that it could help to talk to a professional, please contact me in e-mail:

People who decide to move to a new country are usually courageous and opened to new experiences and adventures. It makes us richer to meet cultures, people, worldviews and ways of living, surprisingly different from our own. It keeps us fresh, since we may learn exciting new things each day, and can lead us to a deeper understanding of the world. Living abroad is a fantastic experience not comparable to anything else, but on the other hand it comes with certain difficulties that need to be handled.

Being far from home, family, friends, and the familiar environment,  as well as the stunning amount of new experiences may make us feel a little lonely though, now and then. Especially, when we face problems in our life. When we feel more vulnerable than usual anyway, we may lose emotional balance and miss very much the support of our loved ones and the security of the habitual environment, like a cup of coffee with our best friend in our favourite café.

However, coping succesfully with our problems and finding balance in hard times is essential. During art therapy sessions you can find your answers to your questions in life in an emotionally supportive environment, through drawing, painting and other techniques. In the friendly atmosphere, where you feel understood and accepted, I help you to find solutions.

You don’t need to know anything about art or drawing, the methods awaken the natural creativity in you, that exists in all of us.

Thus, besides reaching again your inner balance, you’ll  feel understood and full of energy by the end of the sessions.

If you feel that you need some support, give art therapy a try, and call me at +36306243945 or e-mail to erna.adamko@gmail.com

  1. Play

During the art therapy sessions you may set free the inner child and play freely with the colours, shapes and materials. Here everything can be as you like. The sky may be green and the grass can be blue, and you may choose even a dragon as your personal guardian angel.. just like in Wonderland. Additionally, you can splotch and cover yourself with colours or clay, and nobody will take a weird look at you. 🙂

 

  1. Emotional release

Here you can let all your emotions spill out without any control. You can swim in them with the colours of aquarelle, or you can reshape and transform them through clay work. But you may also give them frames with oil pastel or pencil, or simply find their right place on the pages of your life.

 

  1. Stress release

Creating is like a valve. If you open it, all the tension and pressure that has been stressing you will be released, and it’s place will be taken by peace and harmony.

 

  1. Emotional recharge

If you lose yourself in creating, art therapy opens energy sources in you that you wasn’t even aware of. Even if you arrive tired, after 1-2 hours you’ll get up from the table full of stamina and positive emotions.

 

  1. Self awareness

With the help of art therapy methods you can have exciting discoveries about yourself through your own paintings and sculptures. You may get acquainted with a so far unknown self of yours, and may recognize correlations in your life you didn’t see before.

 

  1. Problem solving

With the help of art therapy tools, you can look at your problems from a new and fresh point of view. Thus, seeing them in a different light, you may also get new ideas on how to resolve them.

 

  1. Emotional support

Either you take art therapy sessions individually or in a group, it’s for sure that you’ll find yourself in a positive and strongly supportive environment, where you meet with understanding and encouragement.

 

Try it and come to play with us! 🙂

 

References

I found art therapy with Erna really helpful. I’m a very cerebral person and it can be hard for me to really feel my emotions, hold still and go deeper. With art I can express things I don’t know how to express in words. It lead me to places regular talking therapy didn’t. Erna is empathic and I felt immediately relaxed and I feel like I can open myself up and she will understand and not judge me no matter what i say. I recommend trying art therapy with her, at least once, to everyone. It’s one of my favourite parts of my week. No matter how stressed I go in I always come out relaxed and full of new thoughts and energy. The mess from my head left behind on the paper. :)”

A wonderful environment with nice techniques to express and find yourself. Erna is a heart-warming person who gives you freedom and practice for the tasks, and leads you to a more open and positive being. It is really worth it and you can nicely figure out how you can even start to express feelings on your own.”

The sessions were very enjoyable, exploring different media, including, oil pastels, soft pastels, water colours, cut ups and collage. I enjoyed exploring each form of media…..The other people in the group were very friendly and welcoming and over the course of the 4 weeks I felt I got to know them very well as people…

I think Erna is an excellent tutor/guide, encouraging and challenging us to try explore different techniques.. I would recommend the course and would be keen to attend others if the opportunity arose again.”
