Collaborative Mind/Body Sessions

We at Around the Corner Counselling Ltd. are delighted to announce that we are now offering a collaborative mind/body therapeutic experience for clients seeking to process and integrate difficult experiences. Both Dr. Johnson and Ms. Chavez-Harrison are now working with Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapist, Shari Arial, to offer these powerful, one-of-a-kind collaborative therapeutic sessions. Each session lasts 1.5-2 hours and involves clients spending 45-60 minutes with a psychologist to engage in psychological processing of their experiences and 45-60 minutes with Shari to engage in somatic (body-based) processing. Clients describe these sessions as powerful and effective, allowing them to develop a variety of skills to be able to tolerate distress, reduce symptoms, and improve quality of life.
