Campaign Description

Proofed: Baking Therapy and Counselling provides mental health therapy through the use of baking! At Proofed, we believe that therapy should be provided in an environment that is as inviting as the smell of fresh baking! We also offer traditional talk therapy and mental health workshops. We hope to raise money to provide services to those are not financially able to access therapy, advertise this new business, and buy some baking tools to enhance our therapy experience.

Therapeutic Baking

With Covid-19, the importance of mental health has become even more imperative, and as a result more inclusive mental health services are needed. For many people, mental health services are not financially accessible or can be intimidating to start. For example. going to a typical counselling office may be uncomfortable or even stressful for someone with anxiety or the price of ongoing therapy sessions may not be a feasible option. Thesre are only some of the reasons that currently seperate people from these vital services. At Proofed, we decided that mental health should be provided in an environment that is welcoming, and designed for the specific needs of the client. And what better way to take care of mental health than through the theraputic act of baking! 

Baking therapy is a new form of therapy! The use of baking creates a warm and inviting environment to talk and engage with a therapist. lBaking therapy has been shown to be effective for people with depression, anxiety, and for those that are apprehensive about accessing therapy. 

Come bake and feel great!

FAQs

What is baking therapy?

Similar to art and pet therapy, baking is used as another way to engage in therapy! Clients get the opportunity to bake something as they have a session with a therapist. Baking therapy has been regarded as effective for people that struggle with anxiety, depression, and for those that may be apprehensive about therapy.

How many sessions can I have?

The amount of sessions would be determined between the client and Proofed therapist.

Can baking therapy be done virtually?

Yes! Due to Covid-19, Proofed does offer virtual baking therapy. If needed, Proofed will drop off ingredients the night before a scheduled session on participant's doorstep.

What health and safety features are in place for Covid-19?

In-person sessions:

  • All clients are temperature checked and must complete a Covid-19 questionnaire before each session.
  • Both the client and therapist must wear a mask for the entire session
  • There are plexi-glass dividers throughout the kitchen space.
  • Prior to the start of the session, ingredients are pre-divided for the client, and whatever is not used in the session is thrown out.
  • All workspaces are cleaned and disinfected before and after use. Proofed also offers virtual sessions.

What is the price for sessions?

At Proofed, we understand that there can be financial barriers that can prevent people from accessing therapy, we offer services on a sliding scale to help accommodate all circumstances.

What do I get to bake in sessions?

We like to ask all clients what they are interested in baking and plan baking based off of that.

Is it just for individual therapy?

No! We offer therapy for families, couples, and individuals.
