You Deserve to be Happy
You were born with a healthy self-image. Society has a different idea about disability, visible and invisible, and illness that can erode self-image and willingness to try. Living in a different body is to live in a world created for people who are not you. Work hours, school assignments, role models in books, media, buildings, and socializing favour able-bodies.

How Does it Work?
We chat for a short bit and then I suggest you either make a piece of art, move, or make a rhythm/sounds, or write a few words based on what you said. The we reflect on the art and I suggest a follow-up creation. The art-making and reflection change your perspective and change the size of events making the negative aspects of life easier to manage.
Both pictures use the same circles and colours. The arrangement and size is altered.
The goal is to create more ease and space for you to be you in your life.
Who is the Art Therapy Coach?
I am Wesdyne (Wes-deen). I've worked with kids and adults who have learning, physical, and psychological challenges. Using my M.Dip. in Art Therapy and 7 years of Expressive Arts Coaching training I help you identify your humour, strengths and kindness. Too often psychology experts want clients to explore the darkness in their lives. I give you the tools to carry your light in the dark corners of life. You will learn how to use your voice effectively and peacefully to transform trauma into growth. Coaching sessions are designed to promote Posttraumatic Growth. Making sense of life following a chronic illness diagnosis, loss, or change in independence is possible. The arts, visual art, dance, music, and poetry let you express what is missed in talk therapy. It is possible to laugh, take pride in yourself, and make sense of life. I know. I am a proud disabled woman who lost my adult son to suicide. Life can be dark - art lets the light shine - even if is tiny it will grow with patience, perseverance and flexibility. I am honoured to walk with you in your recovery and growth.
Call me today at 780-271-0675 to shift your life in a positive direction.
How do I say Wesdyne?
Wes and Dean
My Dad thought Wesdyne is a great Western name. My mom spelled it.
It is Wes and Dean, like two old cowboys.
The body is like a horse and the mind is like the rider. As long as the rider stays calm the body relaxes and can do incredible things. Like make art, dance, play a drum, and create impromptu poetry.
