THE PRINCESS and the DRAGON
The Princess and the Dragon may seem at first sight a book about a story. When the reader opens the pages he can dive into various exercises which implement solutions to his or her relationship, like the one between the Princess and Prince, not to mention the Dragon. With innovative exercises using the Gestalt Art Therapy approach, the book "Princess and the Dragon", becomes a book that should be present in the libraries of practitioners of psychology and therapy, interested in discovering new techniques and continue to offer its clients creative solutions they bring to their meetings. The book is written in such a way that even people who do not have anything to do with the profession of counselling or psychotherapy, may read it and benefit from interesting experiments to practice with their partner. The Princess and the Dragon talks about female and male energies that exist in a relationship, independent of sexual orientation.

This is a book to be used when you are feel stressed, bored, or not inspired.
This book is not an Art Therapy book.
I am a Gestalt Art Therapist and Co-Director of The Gestalt Art Therapy Centre (Australia) and I would like to explain to you that colouring books could be helpful when you feel upset or sad, but if you need more emotional support and therapy, I suggest you participate in some Gestalt Art Therapy sessions, not just colouring.
