Groups & Support

~ Heal through connection. You are not alone.~

Group Therapy (18+) is a more affordable option than 1:1 therapy, while still creating a safe space for clients to feel supported and understood. The group dynamic often encourages us to find new levels of self-awareness, through mutual respect and understanding with other members of the group.

 

Now more than ever, we can be completely surrounded by others, while still feeling incredibly isolated and alone. As social beings, connectedness plays an essential role in our well-being, which is why it is such an important theme in group therapy. ​There can be tremendous healing in knowing that we are simply not alone, in our thoughts and feelings.

Group therapy requires a level of commitment from all participants, and often results in a very profound and rewarding overall experience.   

Movement. Gentle yoga an incredible tool for enhancing connection to our bodies. This practice  rooted in ancient wisdom, helps to promote mental clarity and calmness.

The movements are gentle and simple enough for everyone to enjoy, while promoting a sense of mind, body, soul connection.

Mind Your Business   4 Week workshop for the community and the classroom empowers young people by teaching them they have the ability to control their emotional & mental wellness. Students are faced with all sorts of challenges & pressures these days that can lead to feelings of anxiousness, sadness, frustration & isolation. Childhood stressors can cause kids to become so agitated that they may find it difficult to express themselves, focus on schoolwork, and properly socialize with peers at times. And with all of the hard work they do, classroom teachers really have their hands full. Teacher's jobs are busy enough without having to meet the social/emotional needs of their students on top of everything else they do. That is exactly why Mind Your Business workshop was created. We introduce mindful awareness as a method to help students cope with overwhelming emotions and social issues. Mindfulness and meditation are excellent tools to help children develop self awareness and initiate their own emotional self learning.
