Have you ever felt unable to express what’s on your mind and in your heart?

Like there’s something physically stopping you from speaking out, or you’re scared of what the other person’s reaction might be? Maybe you don’t even really know what it is you’re feeling.

Art therapy and working with your creativity can help you access and understand your experiences. It can help you process trauma and difficult emotions, become more grounded, and express what would otherwise be difficult to articulate or talk about. Your therapist is trained to accompany you and facilitate this process.

Art therapy is for everyone. It’s a form of psychotherapy that’s suitable for children, teens, AND adults. You don’t need to have any previous experience making art.

What Exactly Is Art Therapy & What Does It Entail?

Art therapy is a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well-being.

The process of art therapy involves talking with your therapist, and creating pieces using different mediums such as clay, paint, collage, and drawing. The act of creating art is a therapeutic and meaningful experience in itself, and art therapy opens the door to deep self-exploration and self-discovery.

During each session, our therapists in Kingston or Kemptville will guide you through questions about your art to find meaning and insight in the visuals you’ve created. This is a reflective process to help you explore difficult experiences and gain greater self-awareness, understanding, and even new skills.

Our art therapists at The Lighthouse – Le Phare Counselling and Psychotherapy have completed additional professional training, as the field of art therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy. They’re also registered with relevant associations in addition to being College regulated, and follow up-to-date standards of practice.

Because We Don’t Always Have the Words to Communicate

Because We Don’t Always Have the Words to Communicate

Not everyone can talk freely about their thoughts and feelings. If you’re finding it hard to express yourself, you’re not alone. It can be extremely difficult to talk openly about the things you’ve been through or emotions and symptoms you’re experiencing as a result. That’s why our Ontario therapists offer this specific form of therapy so you improve your mental health.
