A Message from Jennifer Page, Art Therapist (DTATI), TITC-CT.

It is with great enthusiasm that I share my passion for art therapy and its ability to heal and transform. During my time at Doane House Hospice, I have had the honour and privilege to bear witness to profound and touching stories of grief and bereavement that are filled with love, courage, strength and joy. Through the creation of spontaneous artwork, clients are able to connect to deep emotions, express thoughts and feelings, and create meaning and new relationships with themselves and others. The artwork embodies the unique and personal narratives of each person who walks through our door. I invite you to explore how art therapy can help to support you through your healing journey.

What is Art Therapy?

Art Therapy is a different approach to traditional talk therapy.  In my work at the Hospice, the clients use simple nuturing materials such as clay, paint and oil and chalk pastels, the joys of childhood. It is an honour to support and guide Hospice  families through the Art Therapy process as they share their hopes, dreams,struggles,and losses.
