Are you or someone you know suffering? Stressed? Burnt out?
Is there a life situation that is overwhelming you right now?
Everyone – individuals, families and organizations – struggles at times. It’s just part of being human.
It takes courage and strength to turn toward our problems and make changes to be healthier and happier. It’s not easy. But it is so worthwhile. And we can help.
We offer therapeutic services and workshops based on a foundation of mindfulness and self-compassion that have been proven to reduce anxiety, depression, perfectionism, shame, negative body image while improving health, well-being, relationship and life satisfaction (both at work and at home). Our services include:
- compassion inspired counselling, to help with emotional and physical issues
such as stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma and relationship struggle.
- transformative workshops on Mindfulness and Self-Compassion,
to manage stress and prevent burnout including the internationally recognized ‘Mindful Self-Compassion Training’ program.
- inspirational cards that offer simple daily reminders to help us care for ourselves and treat ourselves with the same care and kindness we offer to those we care about.
- professional nutrition consultation and on-going coaching support
- private yoga sessions designed to help you connect with your body and your breath and proven to help with stress, grief and post traumatic stress symptoms.
We can help heal and ease your suffering – whether your struggle is related to anxiety, stress, burnout, trauma, depression, mood swings, eating problems, grief, loss or relationship struggles
Please contact us if you find any resonance, curiosity or desire to explore how we might be able to support you at this time in your life.

How are you doing sweetheart?
This is the way we talk and listen to people we care about.
When we attend to ourselves this way our nervous system settles.
Ahhh. There you are. What do you need?
Sometimes we may not know what we need. That’s okay.
We can check in again with ourselves later.
The magic is not in what we need.
It is in attending to ourselves as if we matter.
Today I will check in regularly, asking myself
How am I doing? What do I need?
Bring attention to the soles of the feet
to first anchor yourself.
Inhale slowly counting to three.
Exhale slowly counting to six.
Repeat until you feel calmer.
Practice often and anywhere.
