Life is filled with many challenges. We all use coping mechanisms that appear to make sense for these challenges. Sometimes these coping mechanisms stop working or cause us other difficulties when they are used for longer periods of time. I provide a safe and comfortable environment in which we can work together to develop skills and strategies that lead to change that can be maintained over the long-term. I am trained to offer Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and have facilitated many treatment groups using these techniques. Mindfulness groups currently on hold.
Cindy is a Registered Social Worker in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. She earned a Master's in Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier. Cindy received extensive training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Focusing Oriented Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and EMDR.
Cindy provided treatment at LHSC for many years. She developed and facilitated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy treatments for Depression, Bipolar, Social Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders and developed and facilitated Dialectical Behavioural Therapy programs used to treat Borderline Personality Disorders.

Cindy Steffy's Groups

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Groups currently on hold. MBSR is a therapeutic approach helping a person learn to calm their mind and body to help cope with anxiety, depression, pain, and stress. MBSR teaches "mindfulness," which means focusing on things happening in the present moment and to purposefully pay attention and be aware of current surroundings, emotions, thoughts, and how the body feels. Research shows that MBSR helped people sleep better, feel less anxiety and produced a reduction in symptoms of depression. MBSR has been linked to positive changes in the areas of the brain that affect how a person pays attention, and how they feel and think.
