Our Therapeutic Groups

Art Therapy

Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses creative modalities, including art-making, sounds, and movement to improve and enhance mental and emotional well-being. It differs from art making or performance arts in that the emphasis is on the process of creating, rather than on the end product.

Our registered Art Therapist facilitates the group and focuses on developing a therapeutic atmosphere where participants can share their experiences in a safe environment.

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

Our 8 week introductory Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) Skills Group offers a supportive environment for participants to gain insights into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors while developing practical strategies for navigating life’s challenges. With a focus on shared experiences and mutual support, our experienced facilitators lead discussions and activities that promote personal development and learning.

Our Introductory Skills Group is ideal for those who are curious about the DBT approach; people who are on a waitlist for a full 6 month DBT program; or those who have completed a full DBT Program and would like a skills refresher.

Trauma-Sensitive Yoga

An opportunity to reconnect with your body through gentle movement.

Trauma-Sensitive Yoga is an evidence-based, adjunctive treatment developed specifically for complex trauma and PTSD. You do not need any previous experience to join and the program is open to all genders and physical abilities.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT for Depression & anxiety is a group that focuses on facilitating personal growth and enhancing understanding of one’s self.

This 6 week group uses ideas and practical skills from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a highly regarded approach which is shown to be effective in supporting people experiencing depression or anxiety.

Our skilled facilitators create a therapeutic space, and together we explore tools and strategies to better understand and deal with challenging thoughts, feelings, and emotions.

Sound Minds

Skylight Mental Health’s Sound Minds groups bring together voice hearers in a supportive environment with a strong focus on self-development and social support.  Sound Minds groups aim to provide safe spaces for Voice Hearers to share their knowledge and personal experiences in a non-judgmental zone, as well as offering new learning opportunities.
