Welcome! It seems that you may be struggling with life challenges at the moment (i.e., relationship issues, work issues, loss, etc.), or, perhaps, anxiety, unwelcome thoughts, or apathy are getting in the way of you having the life you want. These are some of the common issues that people bring to my office. I have experience working with individuals, couples and groups, and I draw from extensive professional training to ensure you reach your desired outcome. This could include moving through old and/or new issues, making changes, improving relationships, increasing your vitality.

My practice is current with new scientific research on healing trauma and recognizes the importance of restoring body-mind connection. We will work collaboratively to bring attention to aspects of yourself that increase resilience helping you to disconfirm negative beliefs; try on new/more satisfying behaviours; and improve your relationships and self-worth.

I practice Gestalt therapy and I am a member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapists (C.A.P.T). My practice is continuously informed by professional development and supervision.

Mario Jose Lourenco's Groups

The Clown and Gestalt

Experience the poetic intersection between therapy and clown as a pathway to personal development. Learn to free yourself from what blocks, distorts, and repeats itself without renewal, in order to redirect your awareness into the fluid and ever changing exchange between self and environment. Through play, experience aspects of the self that are often concealed and explore your insecurities, or the materials in the conscience that have been pushed to secret corners and out of sight. June 8th to July 20th / One weekend July 25 to 26 Call: 416 964 9464 or visit www.gestalt.on.ca for more information.

Stage Fright ( Performance anxiety)

Have you ever gotten tongue-tied on a date, cold feet asking for a raise, sweaty hands with just the thought of speaking to a huge crowd, or found yourself hiding behind a book to avoid networking? You just might be experiencing Performance Anxiety. The good news is that you are hardly alone. In this experiential and creative workshop, expect to encounter the pessimism, obsessions, and unfounded beliefs that keep you stuck. You'll overcome your fear of stepping into the spotlight. This workshop is part of the Art Series at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto.
