Simone has been advocating and supporting individuals with mental health and addictions since 2007, and completed her first yoga teacher training in 2011. Simone believes in the courage of the individual and their families, and strives to bring her creativity and passion to her work and with her clients. Simone provides a body positive and LBGTQ friendly space to support growth, balance and self-empowerment.
Simone's helping philosophy follows the medicine wheel model -- incorporating aspects of mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health into the lifestyle in a way that can be accessible to all ages and abilities. By combining various modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, strength based practices, mindfulness, solution focused therapy, yoga, as well as art, Simone trusts in the strength of the individual and allows the individual to guide the therapeutic relationship.
Simone's philosophy allows one-on-one yoga classes, counselling sessions to be practiced in the home where the individual feels most safe and comfortable. This philosophy is ideal for parents who are struggling to find balance in the home or those who are looking for support and space for self-care. Children are welcome to follow and engage in the growth process at the parent's discretion.
