CoVid 19 Update, May 11, 2020

We are in this together!

In keeping with the guidelines issued by the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario, some of my services have moved to remote formats including on-line via doxy.me, phone or email to ensure health and safety. If you feel it is important for you to have sessions in person, I can discuss your needs and options. If you are uncertain about the right format, I offer a free 15 minute introductory consultation so we can talk about your needs and determine the best fit for you.

If your income has been negatively impacted due to the pandemic, I would be happy to discuss a sliding fee.

I am committed to continuing to support you during these uncertain times. If I can be of any assistance, please reach out. You can contact me at 416.762.8054, or by email, michele@breathsong.com

“The heart is the hub of all sacred places. Go there and roam.” ~ Bhagawan Nityananda

Psychotherapy is a process of exploration of the self including personal history, beliefs and values, relationships, and social circumstances, with an intent to make changes that support living more fully. Psychotherapy can be helpful when you have a specific experience that you want to heal, such as trauma, abuse, addiction, stress, chronic pain, feelings of anxiety or depression, or relationship difficulties. It can also be helpful if you want to experience personal growth, a greater sense of freedom, creativity and/or connection with spirit. As a psychotherapist, I provide a safe, confidential place for you to explore and share any and all aspects of yourself, mind, body, heart and spirit. We are living through a time that presents with fast paced change, and social and environmental challenges that can feel overwhelming. I am passionate about helping people heal and integrate as individuals so that we can individually and collectively create a healthy and sustainable environment. My approach to psychotherapy includes consideration of your body, mind, heart and spirit and works to bring these aspects into alignment. During a session, we will have a conversation about what is working well for you, and what is difficult for you. We may use breathing exercises, creative visualization and emotional release work to help you move towards a more satisfying and fulfilling experience. Many people feel change after just a few sessions. However, it can take sustained practice to truly integrate changes. Some people come and do some meaningful work, then take a break, or try other complementary approaches. While not required, I suggest that you plan to try a minimum of three sessions to determine if this work is right for you.

When you do things from the soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. ~ Rumi

Breath is a bridge between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Integrative breathwork uses a breathing pattern that evokes an energy cycle and brings to the surface anything that is in need of attention, including healing the body, releasing or integrating emotions, exploring core beliefs that may be keeping you stuck, or connecting with transpersonal energies that help guide and direct you. Breathwork is a powerful tool for getting to core issues and experiences and for release, integration and transformation. In a typical breathwork session, we will talk at the beginning of a session about what is “up” for you and set an intention. You will then breathe for approximately one hour, often with evocative music to support your journey. During the breath session, I will support your journey, offer helpful prompts, or ask questions that help take you deeper into the experience. Following your breath journey, we will debrief your experience and we may identify follow up activities for you to do at home to help maintain the gains and insights you experience.

Truly, every movement of conscious breath is an inspired co-creation with life itself. ~ Michael Sky

In indigenous cultures, all psychological and physical difficulties are understood to be spiritual at their root. When we are out of harmony with nature, including our own natural essence, we develop symptoms that may range from anxiety or depression to physical illness or injury. Shamanic practices can help restore our spiritual essence to its natural state, so that we may heal. These practices include soul retrieval, energy extraction, and transfiguration. During a shamanic healing session, we begin by talking about how you experience difficulty, or being out of balance in your life. I will do a journey on your behalf, and ask guidance from the helping spirits about what is needed to create healing. Following the journey, we will talk about what information came from the helping spirits. Sometimes, they make requests about follow up work for you to do to help anchor and deepen the healing that has occurred. Following a shamanic healing session, people respond differently. You may experience an emotional reaction which can range from feeling happy and light, to feeling sad, angry or fearful. Or, the change may feel subtle, such that you feel much the same, but you may observe changes over time. In the days and weeks after a shamanic healing session, it may be helpful for you to come for either additional shamanic work, or psychotherapy to help you integrate the changes.

 The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with nature. ~ Joseph Campbell
