Counselling and Therapy Services

Embrace meaningful change and personal growth with our results driven counselling and therapy services

At Breathe Mindfulness Centre we believe that we are all worthy of a happy, fulfilling life with more ease.

“The Journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”  Lao Tzu

Taking the first step, though typically the hardest, towards this is the most important. It represents that a part of you, no matter how small, believes that things can get better.  The first step and the steps taken after also reflect strength that you may not have realized, as it takes courage and commitment to begin a journey that is unknown and at times difficult.   You are not alone on this journey. A safe, compassionate, and supportive therapeutic relationship is the essential container to facilitate healing and change.  We are committed to deeply listening to your specific concerns and needs and working collaboratively with you to provide feedback and guidance that meets your needs and desired outcomes.

We provide evidence-based counselling and therapy and take an integrative, whole-person approach that is results driven and addresses all aspects of your wellness: mind, body, emotion and spirit in achieving desired outcomes. Committed to a collaborative, inclusive and tailored approach, the intention of these sessions is to ease distress, overcome difficulties, and cultivate enduring life-enhancing skills and resources to ultimately assist you in living the life you desire
