PURPOSE: 

 

The purpose of all groups is to provide support, skills, empowerment, and a safe space to process relevant experiences

There are group rules and an agreement signed before the group relating to confidentiality and disclosure. 

Nobody is pointed out or forced to engage

By providing this service in a group we can reduce the feelings of isolation, increase accessibility to mental health services, create a space to learn how to express yourself, hear others and explore different perspectives while developing connections.

CORE COMPONENTS OF ALL GROUPS:

 

All groups have the following components:

  • Live sessions: 

A skills presentation component where you are provided with new information on relevant skills 

Reflection time to contemplate the issues that might present as you adapt to new skills

Discussion time to release any barriers to healthy implementation

 

  • Online recorded videos:

 

24/7 Access to recorded materials to view the class again 

  • Materials

Relevant workbooks/journals/handouts/audio support to address various different types of information processing needs 

**All groups utilize evidence-based strategies and are heavily researched to be effective and helpful. They are always facilitated by an advance trained practitioner,

What you think about impacts what you feel.

But this gets better!

Is it possible to feel stronger, clearer, and more authentic after you've had a significant loss?

 

I would say yes absolutely! Together we can make meaning out of loss and move forward with strength and clarity!

 

Loss is about change and can be an opportunity to grow.

 

Whether your loss is tangible (what you can see) or intangible (what you cannot) it can be disempowering and difficult to make sense and meaning of.  ​  This group works on understanding what grief is and how to move through it.

This group works on understanding what grief is and how to move through it without forgetting who you are.

The cost of this group is $85.85 per session.

4 WEEK
Yoga Therapy

with Helene
Thursdays
Time: 6:30pm
MST (Alberta)
(8:30 pm
 Ontario)

Please note: this class is available after the complimentary intake is complete.

Session 1) What Grounds you

In this class we will explore one of the most important tools to self regulate ourselves. 

 

Grounding can be an action, person, place, thing, or, a shape (yoga pose) or breath practice.

Session 2) Self Care

Exploring ways to nurture ourselves fuels the energy, and resilience to be with others and in life.

Session 3) Purpose

 "Man’s Search for Meaning” a memoir by psychiatrist and holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl’s talks of how purpose is our primary drive in life. It is the 1st of the 4 Purusharthas (deep desires). 

Purpose helps ups get up in the morning and thrive through life.

It changes in different times in our lives, but always a gift to uncover.

With some self inquiry this class will help shed a light to guide you forward.

Session 4) Intention

Once you have found tools that ground you, ways to care for self, and a purpose (for this time), intention is what will move it forward into your life. 

Setting a Samkalpa (intention) brings forth the movement towards a more manageable and balanced mind, and life.
