I can offer a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship that uses art and creative activities to help people to understand, move forward and heal.
My ideal client is one who is aware of their need for support who is trying to manage anxiety, uncertainty in life, complexity in relationships, an immediate crisis, and/or a feeling that something just isn’t “right”. They want to move forward. They also want to feel empowered to use the capacity for learning about oneself to bring about healthy change. Such changes can be individual, couple or family focused. My clients may not know exactly how to manage what is impacting them, but they are ready to embrace the struggle within a nonjudgmental and supportive therapeutic relationship.

Being human isn't always a walk in the park. Maybe you’re feeling numb and finding it difficult to connect with others. Maybe your mind is swirling with thoughts and you're feeling overwhelmed. Maybe you’re anxious and having a hard time finding solid ground. Or maybe you're dealing with the impact of past traumas. Whatever you’re experiencing, you don't have to walk it alone. I work with clients 18+ from a body-centred approach using a combination of Gestalt therapy and expressive art .

Many people wonder what is a “normal” amount of anxiety considering the current state of the world. Frequent hand-washing and social distancing cannot stop the panicky thoughts that flood our day-to-day lives and can potentially trigger pre-existing anxiety, depression, trauma that people are already facing.

She:kon/Hello! My name is Jenny Patterson and I am the founder of Bear in Mind Healing, a private practice based in Cobourg, Ontario. I believe that Mother Earth is a garden and we are the flowers (her children) and that part of my purpose is to help those flowers grow. One of the reasons why I love being a social worker and what drives me to do this work is my own lived experiences. I am not only a survivor of narcissistic abuse and domestic violence, but I am thriving! What I find beautiful is being able to walk with folks on their healing journey for just a little while; creating that safe and nurturing space, that connection.

You're invited to find new meaning in life experiences on a beautiful farm. Our psychotherapy and equine therapy offerings can help you navigate rough patches. Are you feeling stuck, ruled by fear, anxious, tired and without hope? Sometimes we need support to discover the best expression of ourselves. Therapy can help us build confidence and resilience, work through difficult experiences and emotions, manage stress and even achieve post-trauma growth. I have a genuine appreciation for the therapeutic benefits of working with horses (and other farm creatures). We can learn so much about our nervous system simply by being with them.

Some of the therapy models that she uses are Narrative Therapy, CBT, DBT, Solutions-focused and creative approaches such as Art , Play and activities.
There may be times where a person may feel so overwhelmed by their feelings or external circumstances that they are crippled from living the life that they desire and yearn for. These feelings or external circumstances may present themselves as negative thoughts, anxiety, depression, traumatic events, family dynamics and so much more. There is a need and desire for a safe space where one can process through external circumstances and how they impacted them; navigate through those difficult and overwhelming emotions with empathy and compassion; and where they can be their authentic selves without the worry of judgement or rejection.

Through a combination of conversation and the use of art and creativity, each time we meet you will be able to express yourself in whichever way you feel most comfortable.
Do you often feel on edge? Worried that something bad is going to happen? Do you have trouble concentrating, trouble sleeping? Do you develop physical symptoms such as shaking, hot flashes, a racing heartbeat, stomach-ache, headache, or a lump in your throat? Does this ever occur even when you can't even think of any reason to feel this way? Do you feel that what you’re experiencing is preventing you from being your best self and living your best life?

As a Registered Psychotherapist and Professional Art Therapist, I integrate traditional talk therapy with art therapy , also known as counselling art therapy .
“Stepping into the world of therapy can be a scary and challenging experience.” Why? It may be because you grew up in an environment or culture where “talking” about your mental health did not exist, was not accepted, or when you did, it was not validated. Know that I actively try to de-stigmatize “going to therapy” as part of my practice. I believe that therapy can look different for everyone. Some individuals engage in therapy to maintain their emotional well-being and balance in their life and/or some want to actively address debilitating mental health concerns. My approach is to meet you where you are at.

Art Therapy Counsellors
It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in Peterborough is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Peterborough Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centres, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled Peterborough art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
