Description

My desire to work in mental health has been an organic progression that started from developing an awareness of the healing potential in my own experiences as a survivor of trauma and chronic disease and being committed to a path of personal integration and reconnection. On that path, I became fascinated with how our current understanding of quantum theories connects to ancient spiritual beliefs and practices. I am driven by my curiosity about who we are and why we are here. I like to say that “I am here because you are here”.

Summary

Breathing in Trees Counselling offers supportive counseling using nature as part of the healing process. Research has shown that only 20 minutes in nature can reduce cortisol levels by 25%! Using the trails and gardens of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Carolyn is primarily influenced by the following models:  Nature-based, Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal, Mindfulness, and NVC. Whether you are needing emotional support or more intensive therapeutic support, the combination of a non-judgmental connection and the benefits of time in nature might be just what you need. Free consults available.
