Do you experience blocks in your creative process? Do you procrastinate your artistic work, only to feel stressed, frustrated, or depressed by your lack of productivity? Anne Paris, PhD is a clinical psychologist who has practiced psychotherapy with artists for over 20 years. The intimacy of these psychotherapy relationships has helped her understand the inner world of artists, writers, actors, dancers, designers, and musicians as they create works of art. Through thousands of hours of psychotherapy, she has identified artists' fundamental psychological needs during the creative process. Until now, this dimension of psychological experience during creativity has gone unnoticed or has been misunderstood. She has concluded that the artist is helped along in the creative process by certain kinds of emotional support that provides the strength and hope needed to enter into and sustain creativity. An expert in contemporary depth-psychological approaches to understanding human behavior, Dr. Paris has helped famous artists, not-so-famous artists, professional artists and hobby-artists to initiate and sustain their creative process so they can complete a work of art. She has helped them to recognize the sources of their blocks, and provided them with new and effective ideas about how to move past them. www.anneparis.com
