     ART GROUP FOR YOUTH

artgroup

Inner Spark is an art-based group program designed to promote expression and emotional exploration, all while encouraging a positive mental outlook. During this six-week small group program facilitated by a Registered Psychotherapist and an Ontario Certified Teacher (Stacey-See Allied Health Tab for Bio), participants will use a multitude of art media to create spontaneous works of art following directed prompts, and will be encouraged to share their work with facilitators and peers. 

These creations, and the enriching discussions to follow are intended to foster self-esteem, confidence and an ongoing practice of self-reflection. Participants are encouraged to be supportive and non-judgemental, both of their own work and the works of others.

COVID-19 statement

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.

The real danger of COVID-19 is the potential to increase anxiety to such a degree that our behaviours become fear-based. We have already observed examples of nervous hoarding of supplies, googling every symptom, and more importantly disconnecting from and not knowing how to show Care and Concern for those most in need- our neighbours, friends and family.

We are here to offer you support through ONLINE COUNSELLING during this time, we are doing what we can to help. Some of you are familiar with online services and are aware of its effectiveness and convenience, while some are still new to this platform and can still opt for TELEPHONE Counselling.

Please contact us via phone or email to see if either of these would be a fit for you right now.
