Purple Carrots Counselling

We offer a multitude of one-on-one arts-based services such as skill building, counselling and expressive arts therapeutic sessions for children, youth, and adults of the Purple Carrots community – yes, that includes parents, siblings, caregivers & support!

Sessions are led by members of our multidisciplinary staff team at Purple Carrots Drama Studio, who are available for bookings in their specialized area of expertise or study. These private sessions will focus on developing and addressing an individual’s particular skills, interests, or goals, by using the arts within a concentrated counselling session.

With a multi-talented team of Facilitators, Artists, Educators, Therapists and Counsellors, we aim to ensure that there is something for everyone, and that our individual programming and service options at Purple Carrots Counselling are strength-based, goal oriented, and as beautifully diverse as the community we serve.
