Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is one of the least affordable psychological treatments that is in the highest demand across Canada.  We want high quality DBT services to be more accessible and affordable.

– DBT Skills for Adults (called DBT Foundations) 

– Multi-family DBT skills group for adolescents and parents

– LGBTQ+ Affirming DBT Skills group

I have a strong belief that talking about our difficulties will release trauma from our brain and moving our bodies in specific ways will release trauma from our bodies.  

Join us for a weekly body releasing session

Each session will focus on calming the nervous system to better enable the release of trauma and stress. To calm the nervous system, we will practice breath work and gentle movement.  A body scan will complete the movement practice, this will give us an opportunity to check in with ourselves.  Guided journaling and affirmations will help us end the session, encouraging self-exploration, positive thoughts and feelings. 

Typical class schedule:

  • 6:45pm-6:50pm greetings and facilitator introduction
  • 6:50pm-7pm breath work 
  • 7pm-8pm movement practice 
  • 8pm-8:15pm guided journaling and affirmation cards

Group meets every Tuesday at 6:45pm-8:15pm via Zoom

Some guidelines to remember:

  • This is a nonjudgmental supportive environment that fosters inclusivity for all 
  • Participants can join the session with cameras off 

Cost of group: $30 per session or $100 for 4 sessions

Somatic (Body Movement) Psychotherapy Group

Somatic therapy is a form of “body-centered” therapeutic approach which focus on the physical responses which occur in the body due to Trauma, Anxiety or Depression. It’s helps people overcome symptoms tied to trauma it may allow someone to become “unstuck” in the fight, flight or freeze response by releasing pent- up energy and to better cope with difficult bodily sensations, supressed emotions and can bring you into the present moment.

The principles behind somatic therapy: The mind and body are connected, so whatever is felt in the mind is thought to also show up in the body.

Somatic therapy involves clients working on feeling physical sensations in the body that are tied to past traumatic events, rather than only thinking through the events and emotions that were felt. The purpose is to access the body memory of the event, not the story itself. We do this through movements, journaling, meditation and artwork.

When : Every Friday 7pm – 8:15pm EST

Where : Online via zoom

Who : Every one 18+ is welcome

Cost : $400 for 8 sessions
