This is a community based medical centre that offers evidence based, professionally guided trauma healing work. We take a biopsychosociospiritual approach. The needs of the whole person are considered. Body, mind, heart and spirit. Inclusivity is something we value.
This is an intra-personal, processing group therapy program. We use an eclectic range of modalities. We explore; self-care, self-expression, self-identity, trauma, grief and loss, fear and anxiety, self-care for professional caregivers, and much more. All in an atmosphere of gentleness and non-judgment. Survival strategies, trauma reactions, belief systems, mind-sets, and behavior patterns that may no longer be serving are explored. The facilitators provide feedback. The opportunity to learn new skills is provided. Accelerated Resolution Therapy (TM) is one of the specific modalities we use in our program.
We welcome those who are willing to explore what healing and transformation looks like for them. This does require a commitment of: time and energy, self-care, self-compassion, and gentleness.
This is a two hour individual session. Participants will meet with the facilitators, Rita Balanko MA Registered Psychologist and Dr. Jane Carr, Psychiatrist. It will give participants a better idea of the goodness of fit of these programs to their needs. It is a self-referral process. Potential participants need to review our Participation Requirements prior to booking an intake meeting
Following an intake meeting, all individuals wishing to proceed, participate in this process. The initial commitment is to attend one session per week for one month (4 sessions). Each session is 4 hours long. The focus will be on exploring what it means to establish trust, to connect with self, to focus inward on the transformational healing process, and to be part of a group committed to holding the space to do this. During the last session participants will be part of making the decision about whether to continue to attend on an on going basis. All of our groups meet during the weekdays
A portion of the resources generated by all of our healing circles goes to the Soluna Fund which is dedicated to the development of high quality accessible, holistic healing projects. Some examples include; Aboriginal healing practices, nutrition, art, music and dance therapy, yoga children’s health, holistic healing research and much more.
