The idea behind the Strength Tree is – as with Art Therapy in general – to make visible and tangible that which is invisible and therefore difficult to grasp. Lynne encourages the client to think about all that trees represent in the external world – growth, the withstanding of storms, dieback/regrowth, seasons, being earthed, having roots, branching out, their beauty and grace.
