Psychotherapy focuses on exploring, discovering and healing the multiple layers of our unique self.
Meditation is way to bring your attention inwardly so you can focus, release, and relax. Does right, meditation infuses you with a subtle, quiet energy.
Mindfulness practices have become more and more popular as both adults and children discover the positive results and joy mindful living brings to their day to day living.
How We Help
My therapeutic approach will vary according to your needs and preferences. Our sessions will include talk therapy integrated with an eclectic mix of other modalities. You will be a part of the decision on how to proceed with the sessions. You will also be given the option of including a 10 minute meditation at the end of sessions which will ground you and leave you in a more serene frame of mind.
With more than 20 years of experience as a teacher, I am very comfortable working with children. Growing up in today’s world can be quite stressful for many children. Children can be faced with problems (anxiety, anger, grief, sadness, low self-esteem, excessive worry) that affect how they feel, behave or learn. Therapy can support children by allowing them to connect and understand their feelings, and learn techniques on how to cope with their feelings.
It takes courage to come to therapy. Psychotherapy can be challenging but it can also free you to live the life you want. Together, we explore habits and behaviours which are holding you back. Through therapy we aim to explore, discover and heal.
Yoga therapy classes (private/small group)
As an experienced, certified yoga instructor, I often combine my lifelong passion for movement and dance in yoga classes. I also use my psychotherapy training to infuse my classes with the spiritual teachings of authentic yoga, guiding participants to integrate the physical asanas with their emotional and mental well being through mantras, chakra work, music, and affirmations. Meditation is a component of every yoga class.
How Does it Work?
It takes a lot of courage to seek therapy. Knowing what to expect helps alleviate some of the anxiety.
