Counselling & Yoga Therapy are two therapeutic disciplines that are beautifully complimentary to one another as well as to any other treatment modality in the health care system. This is a highly confidential service and very individualized to suit the needs, goals, and lifestyle of the person seeking the therapy.
Counselling (also commonly referred to as psychotherapy or mental health therapy) is perfectly appropriate for anyone who wishes to participate in therapy as a means of taking care of their mental health: increase mental clarity; change problematic thought or behaviour patterns; and improve their emotional balance and overall level of happiness. Goals in counselling can include developing new skills, processing difficult emotions, and addressing the root cause of more persistent states of unease: depression, anxiety, addictions, emotional dependency, trauma, anger, chronic stress, post-traumatic-stress, and more.
Yoga Therapy, on the other hand, is the therapeutic application of concepts, principles, and techniques of yoga which are suitably selected and appropriately modified to suit the individual seeking the therapy as well as to bring out a specific therapeutic effect for that individual. The client is often prescribed an individualized yoga practice that is informed by the client’s wellness goals and addresses the symptoms and causes of the health concern, illness, injury, or disease process. As the individual changes and greater health is restored, the practice is modified accordingly throughout the course of therapy. In some cases, the client may not be ready, able, or wanting to practice on their own between therapy sessions. In this case, simple tools and techniques are used in session along with counselling to help the person achieve momentary relief from the problem, breathe more freely, and begin to understand how to achieve an integrated experience of mind, body, and breath.
