Whenever issues concerning changes in consciousness are discussed, a small number of key points of reference are identified, including the Enlightenment, Darwin’s theory of evolution, Marx’s false consciousness, Freud’s personality theories, perhaps Weber’s ominous warning of disenchantment,7 and more recently the bundle of new sciences which include genetics and neurology.

Promoting client choice was important with regard to art materials and therapy decisions in general and this was facilitated through the therapy contract and regular contract reviews. All clients commented on issues relating to power.

Another client reported as difficult the ‘limbo of waiting for the treatment or tests’, while another said that ‘waiting is the worst’. The experience in waiting rooms can be a liminal experience for carers as well as patients (Cohn 2001).
