This program offers indoor, one-on-one counselling services with our Shaun, our Clinical Counsellor. A great program for youth and adults, this service is entirely client-directed and is designed to complement the rest of our clients’ lifestyles. These indoor sessions can be combined with any of our other services, including Outdoor Sessions, which we recommend most of our new clients try. While some clients seek Counselling as a means of some sort of holistic growth or self/existential exploration, some others also seek comprehensive support with such issues as depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, trauma, sexuality, gender, and addiction (we are certainly not limited to these however, please make an appointment for a 20-Minute Consultation if you have questions or would like to learn more.) Our expertise and experience enables us to provide support for a variety of client needs in the warm environment of our Yaletown Clinic. Suite 232; 1118 Homer Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 6L5
Our "Walk and Talk" Sessions highlight the capacity of the therapeutic relationship to transform in the context of nature, and movement. Through the inherently fortifying properties of exercise and the rugged beauty of the Pacific-Northwest, clients can reach new therapeutic depths in a soulful and holistic manner. Outdoor Sessions also benefit from transcending some of the social barriers that sometimes pose challenging in one-one therapy. Clients often prefer to have their first few sessions outdoors, and some like to change their Indoor Sessions to Outdoor in the event of good weather! You can also customize these sessions to make a round-trip back to the original meeting point, or walk in a direction that ends somewhere more convenient for you. These outdoor sessions are great for adults and youth. Please contact us for details on how we assure your confidentiality, and accommodate people of varying abilities, during these sessions.
Therapeutic Movement and Art
This One-on-One program offers an alternative form of self-discovery, which works well in tandem with Counselling or on its own. Sessions focus on spurring creativity and fostering a self-directed spring of inspiration. Lana’s gentle confidence and expertise lends the framework of this movement and expression based program, which offers a plethora of unique and creative outlets for clients to self-discover. Indoor, Outdoor, and Mixed Sessions are available.
Lana leads our Group-Based art, movement, and expression program, bringing these fun groups back to their earthy origins with outdoor work wherever possible. Open-Groups meet weekly or twice a week in a progressive exploration of femininity, personal culture, and the therapeutic power of sensuality. Clients are gently guided through a client-centered, movement-based expression program. These groups are diverse and dynamic: join us for cathartic, invigorating fun or supplement your counselling sessions with the visceral personal exploration that’s only possible through movement. Lana’s classes are geared toward cultivating the freedom of expression and connection while integrating the artistry of belly dance, including wild and juicy shimmies, earthy undulations, graceful arm techniques, controlled core isolations, musicality, and silk veil and improv play. This class is open level and welcoming to all shapes and ages. Come shimmy your stress off and playfully explore your mind-body connection in a non-judgemental space! Indoor, Outdoor, and Mixed Sessions are available.
Practical Power Fitness
Contact for a Consultation
Our fitness training program allows for the development of a wide range of skills that set our clients up for sustained, optimized health outcomes. Our lead Fitness Consultant Garrett develops an individualized program for each client based on their goals and specializations, allowing our clients to expand their knowledge pertaining to fitness while safely and efficiently meeting client-set goals. These sessions are highly motivating, energizing, and emphasize flexibility, speed, and practical strength depending on client goals. This program works especially well when supplemented with the Whole Cuisine or Bonfire Expression programs. Clients sometimes find it useful to jump into one of these sessions immediately following a Counselling session. Indoor, Outdoor, and Mixed Sessions are available.
