Wellness

Heal your mind, heart and soul through one-on-one art therapy.

Sometimes we feel like life has thrown us more than we can handle. Reaching out and exploring art to heal is one form of art therapy. Wellness sessions can help you explore your emotions and feeling, and relieve stress, tension and grief. These one-on-one sessions are developed with your specific art abilities and healing needs in mind and can take place in person or through Skype sessions.

Working together we can explore and help you with:

  • Relationships

  • Grief Counselling

  • Spiritual Discovery

  • Personal Development

Health

Open the doors of communication with expressive therapy.

Communication is one of life’s very basic needs, but not everyone is able to communicate with words. Using expressive art therapy is a wonderful way to open the doors of communication with loved ones who are otherwise silenced. Through Art Therapy we explore the heart and mind and bring unspoken stories, feelings and love to the surface. Customized sessions for individuals or groups are available.

Art Therapy has wonderful health benefits for those who are:

  • Affected by Dementia or Alzheimer’s

  • Silenced by Autism or other Mental Heath Illnesses

  • Anguished by Cronic Illness

  • Haunted by Emotional Trauma or Pain
