I've never had a counsellor present ideas to me that made sense, and that actually helped me see what I needed to change. Janine is really, really good. -M. R.
Even though the counsellor helped me through my struggles, I still have a standing appointment with her every month. I love having this as my monthly support and "me" time at Art For Change! - G. H.
The cost of counselling always stopped me. Yet when I decided to commit, I moved ahead leaps and bounds. I think everyone could use counselling. It's worth it! - K. A.
Art Therapy and/or Counselling Sessions
Private one-on-one sessions $125/hour (Sliding scale starts at $65) with a professional. These sessions are client-focused, and we encourage you to look at our counsellor profiles to find the right fit. Please note that we offer both in-person and online sessions.
Couples and Families
Couples and family therapy sessions are $200/75 min (Sliding scale starts at $90). We find that an hour isn't long enough when more than one person is in the room!
$20 Student Nights - The Cheaper Alternative!
Starting in the Fall of 2019, join us every Friday and alternating Saturday evenings for our student clinic, where you or your child can see a student art therapist and counsellor for a cheaper price of $20/hour. Students will stay with us for a minimum of 6 months, and so you can expect a degree of continuity. We are currently accepting clients! Please let us know if you would like to be on that list (email@example.com)
Art Programs/Art Therapy Workshops
Groups, workshops vary in price.
One time art and/or art therapy workshops are great for support groups, parties, staff appreciation events, for schools and groups, etc. Workshops start at $250.00 for approx. 6ppl and are 2 hours in duration. Our workshops include basic materials, yet some of the materials will be an extra fee (we source out cheap supplies). Contact us for questions, project ideas, pricing concerns, etc. Come to us or we come to you!
We offer art programs to seniors care homes, schools, organizations, etc. and will negotiate a price that works for your budget! Please contact us for details. We can supply references!
Our current art therapy and counseling groups and workshops average about $50/individual per class for approx. 10 ppl. Price depends on the organization we are working with, their budget, and the time and energy that we put into the preparations and execution of the program. We create programs to suit the needs of the group. EVERY MONTH, we offer by donation groups/classes! Check out our Eventbrite page for more details!
Public Speaking Events/Special Event Activities
We give FREE public talks and presentations on the different aspects of holistic well being, issues or challenges, mental health, mindfulness, counselling, and art therapy. We want to give back to the community, share our resources and expertise, and share about what we offer. Conducting an event for charity or a cause? Contact us to help you bring in some art and art therapy, or even art donations, to help your events be even more successful! Please inquire:
We accept practicum students to assist with project preparations, workshops, and one-on-one support in exchange for practical hours and client contact hours. We would like interns to commit to six months ideally. At this time, volunteers are not needed, yet we do thank you for you support! Check back in again with us as this may change.
Our lead counsellor, Janine, is both an RCC and a BCATR. Janine supervises students and professionals towards their registered membership. Supervision is typically completed online or over the phone, yet in-person is also an option, and is a reduced cost of $65/hr. Contracts must be signed, and a discussion around expectations is a good place to start. Contact for more details and to start the conversation.
