Genine Tham is an art therapy beneficiary of Extra•Ordinary People’s Art Psychotherapy Programme. When she first started Art Psychotherapy sessions in 2019, she was only able to draw ’H’ and ‘9’ using a red marker. With guidance and encouragement, she has since developed a sense of openness and learnt to explore her environment through movement, rhythm, colour, sound and touch.
