Body-centered counselling to reduce anxiety and depression
Yvette Lalonde, MTC.
Body-centered counselling can help.
In order to heal as a whole it is imperative to work holistically, with your body, mind, and spirit.
Struggles and trauma are not solely part of our cognitive process. We all hold memories and trauma within our bodies. Most of us learn to disregard the signals our bodies send us. Often this process starts at a young age as a way to survive and navigate our experiences. Disregarding the signals our body sends can become habitual until a symptom becomes bothersome enough for us to desire change.
In body-centered counselling, awareness is brought to the physical expression of your body in support of learning how to be sensitive to your body's messages. Our sessions will unfold organically, ensuring you receive healing at the level and pace that most honours you in the here and now.
Together we will bring a new level of awareness of your entire being – body, mind & spirit. You will learn the tools needed to reconnect to your body, and release yourself from old patterns, allowing you the opportunity to experience life with trust, freedom, and satisfaction.
As a Registered Professional Counsellor and a Yoga Teacher, I have been exploring holistic ways of healing for over 20 years. I have learned to trust my Inner Wisdom by listening to the intelligence of my body, and in so doing, I have found my life’s passion, which is to support the healing of others.

Words cannot describe the pure joy to be experienced when we are truly free to express our innate Self and to live our lives authentically.

Nonviolent Communication Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is one of the most useful skills I have ever learned. The creator, Marshall B. Rosenberg, has used NVC in war-torn areas as a way to find peaceful resolutions. This is a testament as to how it can help us improve communication in our personal and professional lives. NVC is about building connection, […]
In the three previous parts of this series we explored embodied listening, gaining clarity, and how to re-establish our sense of self during periods of heightened stress. In this final part we will explore attachment theory. Knowing your attachment style can help explain why you require reassurance from your partner or why you are more reserved in relationships, why you […]
