FRIDA KAHLO ~ THE GRANDMOTHER of ART THERAPY?
{“I suffered two grave accidents in my life,” Kahlo said. “One is which a streetcar knocked me down and the other was Diego.” The mix of both her physical and emotional pain came together in one place: the canvas. Her art has been defined as something real, cruel and brutally honest, yet beautiful.

In her lifetime, Kahlo produced over 200 paintings, sketches and drawings related to her life of physical and emotional turmoil. Of the 143 paintings she created, 55 were self-portraits of which many have said cannot be disconnected from her life. Her paintings were her biography. 
The use of art and creativity allows for people to communicate, overcome stress and become more in tune with who they are and how they feel. In psychology, art is used to enhance mental health and to treat psychological disorders resulting in art therapy.

The American Art Therapy Association describes art therapy “is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight.” Although art therapy did not formalize until the mid-1900s, Kahlo definitely used it in her own life to cope with the stresses of her physical limitations and emotional instability. Whether she knew it or not, Kahlo could be considered the grandmother of Art Therapy. Not only did she use it to keep herself going, but it was and has been shared with all the world through her existing art pieces, life story and iconic figure of strength.} ~DailyVitamina.com

Jen here~ there is debate about "art as therapy" vs. "art therapy". The latter involves a relationship with a professional Art Therapist. I'm excited to break it down for you more, this fall. Frida is one of my favorite artists (& used art AS therapy).

Grief and loss. Let a professional help you let go of your "shoulds" during healing stages. Be a hot mess but do it in a safe space. Counselling or Art Therapy can help you develop coping skills and new strategies.

Ever wrapped a toaster in a towel, when the kids are asleep and took a hammer to it, in the garage? Feels pretty great, heh? Anger. Do you have the tools to manage yours? Anger can be powerful fuel, as long as you're not hurting yourself or someone else with it. Need some useful strategies? A good counsellor can help you manage the under the surface issues. And possibly have fun doing it.

Currently booking into the third week of July, with more spaces available in August. 1-855-702-4984.

Old growth forests really do it for me. Are you struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Use mini adventures as outlets. Or Counselling. It can help.

Today I received powerful advice on how to take a good selfie at networking events! @amyenglemark legitimately had to tell me where I'm supposed to be looking. And it's really hard not to make a claw. I prefer the first photo, obviously. (by @dyanspink). 🌿. 🌿 Did you know if you take a selfie with a #liftVIP (like...me) post it & hashtag it on media- you can win awesome gift certificates to all the cool places that the cool kids eat and drink at? I promise to make a funny selfie face. 🌿. #weareYQQ #liftvip #arttherapy #JenBurtCounsellingArtTherapy #theartandtherapylady #tintown #kidcounselling #courtenay #couplescounselling #weareVanIsl #redhairdontcare
