Getting Started

We understand that the journey towards restoring emotional well-being and mental health does not begin on the first day of therapy. It begins on the day a personal decision is made to seek support. We’re here to help, every step of the way.

Step 1- Determine the type of service that suits you best

At Full Circle, we offer a variety of services, because we know everyone’s mental health journey is different and requires a different level of support. We want to fully support your personal growth, which is why you can expect that your preferences will be understood and respected.

Are you looking for a more focused approach, where you will work closely with your therapist? Then we suggest Individual Art Therapy Session. Our Individual Art Therapy sessions allow for a focused approach to your mental health needs. You and your therapist will be able to work closely together to achieve a therapeutic process that is tailored to your specific mental health needs. From experience, the one-on-one time helps to foster a safe environment and trust between you and your therapist to support your personal growth.

Are you looking for group engagement in your journey towards mental health. We recommend an Art Therapy Workshop. Our Art Therapy Workshops focus on providing a safe space for you to explore how artistic processes can aid in enhancing your well-being in a holistic way. We strive to provide a safe environment through our workshops, allowing you to relate to others in a healthy way and connect with people who are on a similar path. Build your mental fitness like you would your physical.

Step 2- Choose a Therapist

Our team of therapists have a wide-range of experience and expertise to meet your needs. All of our Art Therapist are professionally trained at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute (T.A.T.I), a master equivalent degree, with over 800 hours practical experience.

We know that you are more likely to have a great therapy experience if you feel like you can relate to and trust your therapist. We take our commitment to you seriously and do our best to help match you with the therapist who can provide the best support for you and will complement your needs.

Our therapists are here to support you. If you prefer, you can book a 15 minutes phone consultation with the therapist to address any initial concerns or questions you may have. You can get to know them here.

Step 3- Register for your first session

We want to create a world where everyone has access to the mental health care they need and mental health is not seen as something that “needs fixing.” We know that when it comes to therapy, you have probably given it a fair amount of thought prior to reaching out to us, which is why we want to ensure that our services meet your needs. Your therapist is looking forward to meeting you!

Step 4- Know what to expect from your first session

  • A warm welcome and an introduction to explain our therapeutic approach

  • A review of your mental health history and/or specific needs

  • Any of your questions or concerns will be addressed to make sure you are comfortable with our therapeutic approach
