Welcome to Art Therapy Guelph

When my clients first connected with me, they had time to pause and reflect on their life. They said they had lost a sense of who they really were and were burned out. Their past was not without grief and trauma and they were ready to heal their childhood wounds. Some of the issues clients sought my help for were processing life's challenges like illness, divorce, grief and loss, abuse, nightmares, and ageing. They wanted help managing their emotions and to deeply explore themselves in a safe environment. They were ready to engage in meaningful soul work and deepen their mind, body and spirit connection. Many clients stated that art therapy helped them re-ignite their creative interests and return to their old selves. 

I get it because I used to feel the same way. You deserve to lighten up what weighs you down and process the past to make way for a better future. At Art Therapy Guelph, I offer a comforting and grounding space to work through life's challenges and stressorsI use a combination of art therapy and psychotherapy to help people work through issues like anxiety, depression, childhood trauma, life transitions and grief.

My clients and I gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their emotions, and their lived experiences. They learned how to use positive coping tools and to speak up when things go against their goals and core values. Their intuition, creativity and self-compassion increased. They learned to move forward in an authentic and wholehearted way. 

Hello, I am Heather Caruso, the owner of Art Therapy Guelph, an Artist, Healer, Art Therapist and Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). For more information about me, click here

My ideal art therapy client is someone who is ready to work and commit to the process of art therapy and healing. They may be creative and enjoy engaging in arts and crafts or they may claim to not be artistic, but they embrace using art materials simply for expression. They are not hung up on the look of their work. Whilst working together, they are open to communicating their feelings and needs. They engage in suggested therapeutic exercises in-between visits and embrace their creative journey.

I offer both one on one and group art therapy sessions. Sessions may be via Zoom or in person. If you are interested in more information, please leave us a message and we can set up a 15-minute consultation to discuss how I can help.
