Welcome to Creative Resilience! An anxiety program for kids in Muskoka.

Anxiety is tough. It is an intense emotion that can feel hard for kids to understand. Anxiety can show up in a variety of different ways and can feel scary to experience. 

Creative Resilience was designed to address the common misunderstandings we have about anxiety and to bring education in a fun and playful way using art for kids experiencing anxiety!

Need to know:

This program is considered to be non-clinical. This means that although this program is designed and facilitated by a professional art therapist and registered psychotherapist the intention is not to provide psychotherapy.

However, it is designed to be educational, fun and therapeutic. Art-making and play are naturally therapeutic modalities and this program is considered "art as therapy". I am here to support and educate the participants throughout the program. 

 

This program is best suited for anyone, aged 8-11, who has dealt with or is dealing with some form of anxiety in their life and might benefit from exploring through a group based art process!

 

So what does art have to do with it?

 Art therapy is a process that allows us to be curious about ourselves through a gentle and creative approach. It provides us with opportunities to reflect, play and connect with ourselves in a tactile and visual way. It allows you to express yourself differently that doesn’t necessarily involve words. Human beings are innately creative. It’s a process that allows you to cultivate empowerment in your life, to understand your experiences, to reflect on your direction and to build a strong sense of self.
