About

Art Therapy Guelph supports people with stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, burnout or PTSD. We also help folks during big life transitions like divorce, moving or grief. We offer a safe space to unpack various emotions, feelings and bad memories. We use a combination of psychotherapy, positive coping tools and artmaking in sessions. Would you like a different unique art-based therapy? Don’t worry you need not be creative or artistic to participate. The best part is art therapy helps when words fail. If you don’t know where to begin, don’t worry we will be with you every step of the way.
In sessions, we talk about your specific goals and feelings. We go at your own pace. Usually, most of the time is spent creating art. In-person sessions have all of the art materials supplied. Based on your needs, we will suggest a guided art exercise or allow for free expression. Online sessions require basic art supplies, a computer and private workspace.
Together, we can work through the darkness of the past to paint a brighter future. We support children, teens, and adults online and in person. Art therapy is not just for children. Thinking of becoming a client? Contact me today to book a risk-free 15-minute chat. During this time you can ask questions, and learn more about what we do and how we can help.

Art Therapy Guelph's Groups

Wise Mother Crone Archetype Art Therapy Group

This group supports mature women who want to explore Jung's sacred feminine archetype of the wise mother or crone. Each group is made up of 6 mature women. This group is for women who want to deeply explore their own feminine wisdom, maturity, honour their inner crone and be empowered. Artmaking in this group helps you embrace ways to step into your personal crone power and authenticity. Get ready for some deeply spiritual soul work and to create a deeper understanding of yourself and your strengths. It is held online via zoom.
