About the Programme

Healing Strokes is a four-session art therapy programme organised by the Singapore National Stroke Association (SNSA) with the aim of enhancing and strengthening the coping skills and well-being of stroke survivors. The small closed-group structure of the workshop allows a platform for participants to safely embark on a journey towards greater self-discovery, awareness, expression of feelings and sharing.

What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy combines the principles of psychotherapy with the experience of creative expression. Providing a means to convey feelings or concepts that cannot be easily expressed in words, art therapy allows self-expression, facilitates communication, and improves mental and physical well-being.

Art therapy focuses on the process of art-making and highlights the reflective and restorative values of personal artwork. It can result in an increased understanding of oneself and relationships with others, improved self-esteem and the opportunity to look at life’s challenges from a different perspective, with insight and self-awareness.

Ms Jun Lee Jun Shan is a Registered Social Worker with a Masters in Art Therapy. Through her many years of work as both a social worker and an art therapist, she has accumulated a broad range of experience in her work with schools, VWOs and hospitals, for patients and clients from all walks of life. Jun passionately believes in the use of art as a creative process to aid in personal development, increase coping skills, and enhance cognitive function. At current, she is freelancing as an art psychotherapist.
