Be supported along the way…

I invite you to join one of our experiential psycho-education group focused on building resilience – our ability to bounce back in difficult times.

We will support each other in acquiring some resiliency knowledge, skills and tools which offer us a way to better manage stress, cope with difficulties and find more joy in our daily life. 

We will PRACTICE together as a group and I will invite you to set some personal commitments outside of our sessions because if we want to feel differently, we have to practice something different!

Experts identify 5 key components of resiliency:






We will explore these together as we combine them with mindfulness-based practices to support the life changes you want to make.  You will be invited to set intentions for yourself, reflect on your learning and share your experiences with the group according to your level of comfort.  Everything is an invitation!
