Anyone can benefit from Creative Art Therapy and need not be an Artist
Creative Art Therapy assists with improving concentration and focus, increases self-esteem and provides support while learning to cope with impulsivity. Creative Arts Therapy sessions can alleviate feelings of isolation that may accompany a variety of diagnoses such as ADHD. While talk therapy is included, Creative therapy uses all the arts as a language through which to release feelings while communicating to others many emotions which may sometimes be challenging to express in words. For more information please contact: Susan Leopold, Creative Arts Therapist at 416-792-2824.
