LGBTQ+: Online sessions are confidential and allow you to do art therapy from a safe space
Christel Bodenbender, MA
I am a certified art therapist with years of art therapy and counselling experience. I am also a registered yoga teacher and energy healer. So, you might say, healing is in my blood.
I worked in mental health and counselling settings at Victoria Mental Health and Greater Victoria Citizens Counselling Centre (both Victoria, BC, Canada). But emotional and mental wellness shouldn't require you to have to go far. Let's meet online via Zoom or Skype.

All you need is a mobile phone/tablet or computer that can run Skype or Zoom. My business is located in London, Ontario, Canada, but you can be anywhere in the world, remote or in major urban center, and we can connect and start your healing process through online art therapy.
Since online art therapy is a form of telehealth, we don't have to meet at any particular place, just contact me when you need support and I'll get back to you to set up a full meeting as soon as possible.
Creative expression is not only part of the healing journey, but in each session we will also talk about the art you created, letting you share it with me. Sharing is safe, as I am here to hold the space for you.
Additionally, you can do artwork during the time between sessions and then share them with me next time we connect. This allows you to stay engaged in the healing process.

Individual sessions are 60 minutes and currently a low Canadian $50/hour for Canadian clients and US$45/hour for clients outside of Canada
I am also offering 60-minute group sessions (minimum of 2 and maximum of 5 participants for each session) for Canadian $25/session (Canadian clients)
Group sessions are art-as-therapy, during which I will also individually check in with you regarding your progress and what you want to address. It is an amazing way to build connections and community online while being creative
If you reside in Canada I ask you to pay for sessions via e-transfer
International payments are done online and can be carried out with a credit card, which allows a conversion into your local currency
The intake session is free
