"Change only occurs once the need to change exceeds the pain of staying the same." Working with individuals, couples, and poly groups, together we develop awareness of systemic factors influencing conscious and subconscious behaviours and decision-making patterns. Then we focus on increasing the strengths and resources available to, and within, the client. Building on the basic Buddhist tenets of mindfulness , compassion, and congruence, we can paint a different picture of both personal and relational issues, and more effective, authentic ways of growing towards your goals.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Counsellors
For clients in Kitchener with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based counsellors in Kitchener can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Kitchener MBCT counsellors.
