Therapists have reached out to me to say, “I’ve seen tremendous growth in a patient who said they were in your class. What are you doing over there?” Whether you have patients already seeing results, or had no idea improv was helpful or even what it is, this is an opportunity to find out.

More and more teenagers are growing up suffering from anxiety and depression. A survey commissioned by Children’s Mental Health Ontario shows that 46% of students have missed school due to issues around anxiety. Improv is a way to help that they’ll actually enjoy doing. In this introductory class, we’ll use improv and powerful self-help concepts to help teens move away from anxiety, and towards their natural confidence and courage.

Found a class you like, but are scared to sign up? You’re not alone. The IDEA of improv is way scarier than the actual play and fun in the classes. Right now your brain is probably “what if?”-ing a whole bunch of scary stuff that you’ll have to do. Be funny on command, be alone on a stage, naked, in front of your high school bullies, singing. While that could be fun, it’s not what we’re here to do. These classes are about growing through play and laughter. I know you have the courage to do this. And so much more. You’ll see.

According to the CMHA, anxiety disorders affect 3.6 million Canadians. And those numbers are probably low. When you factor in the stigma of mental health issues, the fact that almost half of people say they’ve never gone to see a doctor about their issues, most people end up suffering alone before admitting what would be perceived as a “weakness.”
While few scientific studies exist, improv and play have been shown to help:
It changed my life (read my story here). And I’ve personally seen it change the lives of others. Improv is like going to therapy, and having fun at the same time.
Laughter truly is the best medicine.
“I’ve been struggling socially for a really long time. I finally decided that it was time to turn things around. I don’t think that I would have ever tried my hands on improv if this wasn’t called “Play Anxiety Away!”, so that definitely helped with my decision.
6 weeks go by quickly, but you’ll also notice how quickly your self-confidence will grow and how quickly your anxiety will go away. Sure, when you go to your first class you’ll probably just wanna ‘die’, but hey, you made it to class, and in my book, that’s an amazing first step towards helping yourself!
By Week 6, you just won’t be able to wait to go to class and have a blast! I’m just sad how quickly those 3 hours went by.”
