What is art therapy?
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses visual arts as a major expressive modality within the therapy space. In this confidential and creative space, the client expresses their emotions artistically and verbally, allowing for a unique means of exploring ones thoughts and feelings.
Art therapy is both an internal experience, allowing for introspection through art making, but it also enhances the externalization of emotion. Through the use of symbolism and metaphor, emotions and experiences become living entities which can then be interacted with. Artistic expression can be helpful for expressing emotions which are difficult to verbalize.
Art therapy is beneficial for all ages, and is used to enhance the quality of life for people living with (but not limited to): anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, addictions, grief and bereavement, trauma, among others. One does not need any experience with art to benefit from art therapy; the process of creation is far more important than the product.
Contact our art therapist to begin your creative journey!
What is Counselling?
Counselling helps you use your own strengths and resources to face the challenges that you may be experiencing in your life. Our counsellors can assist people who have encountered trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, grief, relationships, self-esteem, or any other difficulty preventing you from living a fulfilled life.
Counsellors can work with you to set goals for personal growth, address the hurt you have experienced, and expand your coping skills for emotional, mental, and spiritual well being. Our counsellors use a trauma-informed approach, mindfulness, and arts-based activities to help children, youth, and adults.
In counselling sessions you can expect emotional support, education, and artistic interventions. Each client will have their own wellness plan according to their individual needs and goals.

What is Coaching All About?
Coaching isn’t about giving you advice on how you should or shouldn’t live. You have all the answers within you.
However, hearing this answers, or getting to know who you really are, and what you really want in life, is not always possible on your own. And here the role of coaching begins.
You are the expert in your life – the coach is the expert in the process of helping you to achieve whatever you desire in the essential areas of your life.
Here at Circle Studios you will receive a holistic approach to coaching, as every domain of your life (personal, business, relationships, etc.) affects each other.
Through coaching you will discover the way to live a happy life and to realize your wildest dreams. And now Life is too short to postpone it for tomorrow.
The time for change is today.

Emily Whelan: Art Therapist
Booking: Thursday + Fridays weekly
I acquired my post graduate diploma of art therapy from the Toronto Art Therapy Institute, and am continuing my studies currently at Wilfred Laurier University, working towards my masters of psychotherapy and spirituality. I have professional membership with the Canadian Art Therapy Association (CATA), and am working towards becoming a registered psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I have experience with both group and one on one art therapy, working with varying populations, including children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. This includes: working in addictions in a residential setting, with homeless populations in an open art studio, in a hospice setting working through anticipatory grief and bereavement, those who are caregivers, the newly diagnosed, as well as in a hospital working in the long term care unit as well as with palliative care patients. Many clients have had concurrent mental health diagnosis such as anxiety and depression.
Through these experiences I have helped others explore their thoughts and feelings within a safe, welcoming and creative environment. I use art as a means to understand the relationship between emotions and actions, in order to recognize patterns, and gain clarity. This has lead to increased motivation for self-improvement in clients, as well empowerment in the ownership of their stories and how to continuously grow from experience and knowledge. The art therapy space is amazing in it’s explorative potential, and can help others to work through tough emotions in order to gain a larger understanding through processing in a safe way. I love to engage with this profession, and am continuously learning about the best practices and evolving approaches within this dynamic field.
I practice through a trauma informed, anti-oppressive framework; all sessions are goal oriented and client-centred, working towards solutions in a transparent experience. I have experience utilizing CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness with clients, and have a specialized certificate in motivational interviewing.

I offer individual and group art therapy for $90 per session on Thursdays and Fridays
