Expressive arts therapy
one on one
with Renata Chubb, Expressive Arts Therapist in Training
What is Expressive Arts Therapy?
Expressive arts therapy is an arts-based approach to self-inquiry that engages and supports individuals through a process of creative expression helping them reconnect and trust their own inner resources.
In an expressive arts therapy session client and therapist may explore concerns, experiences, beliefs, patterns using an intermodal approach consisting of visual art, sound, voice, journaling, breath, movement and play as catalysts for personal inquiry, discovery and growth.
The arts can potentially provide clarity about ourselves in the present moment, allowing us to notice how we feel within our body through certain processes. It is also a gentle way to explore with curiosity the possible changes we may wish to undertake in our lives.
No prior art making experience is necessary.
Sessions are never recorded and remain confidential.
Informed Consent form will be required prior to first sessions.
A session may include any combination of verbal sharing, art-making,
journaling, breath work, play and/or movement.

About Renata Chubb
My name is Renata Chubb and I am an expressive arts therapist in training. I am currently in my second year of a three year program at the CREATE Institute in Toronto. In conjunction with the CREATE Institute program. I am working with groups and individuals in the capacity of art facilitation and expressive arts therapist in training.
I am a current member of the Ontario Expressive Arts Therapy Association (OEATA). OEATA # 232
For years I have worked with seniors groups, non-verbal clients, as well as groups of women in the role of guiding them to feel more comfortable in expressing themselves. Expressive Arts Therapy is a relational, client centred, arts based approach to exploring ourselves and our relationship to everything else in our lives. In a session you may work with sound, body movement, visual arts, play, journalling, story telling and nature. Using these mediums we can explore many themes that we may be confronted with in life. I approach Expressive Arts therapy from an exploratory curiosity. It serves us best to try to refrain from judgment of ourselves and offer our experiences and emotional states generous curiosity on how they fit into or have become a part of our daily lives.
