Frequently Asked Questions

In what kind of situations can this type of Mindfulness be beneficial?

You are learning a new way of relating to experiences. This can be beneficial in pretty much any situation involving emotions.

I have personally gotten much help in the following areas:
– Anxiety which I used to have a lot before learning these tools
– Relationships and feeling more connected with other people
– Breakups
– Addictive behaviours
– Relief for physical pain and nearly complete relief from pollen allergy symptoms
– The ability to effortlessly be much more aware and present in whatever I am doing
– Having a sense of freedom and generally enjoying life

Is this a type of therapy?

While the sessions can definitely be therapeutic, my services are not a form of psychotherapy.

The services are intended for healthy adults who do not have mental illnesses or severe addictions. These situations require specialized care by a health-care professional. The sessions are not a substitute for therapy.

I am not a therapist or a health-care professional and I do not offer any medical advice. The services should be regarded as a form of emotional support which empowers the client to find new ways of relating to thoughts and emotions, consulting with a health-care professional as necessary.

Are the sessions confidential and how much do I need to share?

All sessions are fully confidential. In addition, the client has the option of only sharing as much or as little as he/she feels comfortable at any given moment.

It is not necessary for the client to reveal any personal information during a session. To illustrate this, please consider the following.

Let's say that during a session an old memory comes up. Instead of telling the facilitator anything about this memory, the client can simply say "I am noticing an image". This is enough for the facilitator to continue facilitating the session.

The content of the images is important for the client. It is not, however, necessary for the facilitator to know what it is. Therefore, it is completely up to the client to decide how much he/she wants to share.

Most clients prefer to talk about the words, images and body sensations that come up during a session, but sharing these is completely optional.

If you do decide to share, the facilitator might be able to provide additional questions to help you find even more connections and associations. For this reason, sharing can be helpful. Just remember that you do not need to do this if you feel at all uncomfortable sharing.

What do the sessions cost?

See the booking page.

Are these online sessions? How do we connect?

Yes, these are online sessions.

You will get a Zoom link after you book your session

If for any reason you can't use Zoom or prefer another platform, we can use Skype, FaceTime, Messenger, Hangout, or whatever app you are comfortable with.

It is highly recommended to have a video call instead of only audio. This makes it easier for me to facilitate the session.
