Groups

We offer various therapeutic groups to support our clients’ unique emotional journeys. These groups include:

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Skills Group:

We offer separate DBT skills groups for both adolescents and adults. Designed for individuals struggling with impulsive behaviours and emotion dysregulation, participants will learn to develop and implement mindfulness skills, regulate their emotions, better tolerate distress,  communicate with others more effectively, and improve balance in their thought, behaviour, and daily lives.

Mindfulness for Beginners:

Learn about the physical and emotional benefits of mindfulness. Develop practical skills to apply to your everyday life. Achieve balance, peace and lasting wellness.

Post-partum Support:

This group is designed to support new mothers as they navigate the challenges of parenthood, and learn to overcome anxious and/or depressed thoughts and feelings associated with having a baby.

Please note that groups typically run weekly, for 8 to 12 weeks.
