Counselling Therapy – Empowered U

Michele Theoret

MA Counselling Psychology; Registered Provisional Psychologist; Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher-500; Certified Yoga Therapist, Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher

In my work as a therapist, I help clients shift from just surviving to thriving. My focus is on creating safe trauma-informed spaces; meeting clients where they are at in life; and inspiring a compassionate curiosity about who we are, how we might have arrived here, and what else might be possible. I help clients struggling with issues related to stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief, parenting, relationships, mood disorders, personality disorders, and chronic illness/pain.

 I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities including mindfulness/yoga, somatic stress relief, compassion-focused therapy, EMDR therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), Gottman couples therapy, and narrative techniques in order to support individuals in being more connected, current, and creative in their relationship with themselves and the world. Compassionate curiosity or acknowledgement is the birthplace of change. We cannot transform what we do not process, we cannot process what we do not acknowledge, and what we do not acknowledge haunts us forever.

Inspired by wellness, healing, movement, yoga, mindfulness, and psychology, I encourage a compassionate curiosity about who we are and what else might be possible. My offerings shift the narrative from self-improvement and ‘should’ towards self-care and self-compassion; Wholeness over perfection.

My vision as an author, educator, and mental health therapist is to empower individuals to become more engaged in their moment-to-moment experiences, transforming the way they show up in their bodies and lives every day.

“There are times in our lives when we have to realize our past is precisely what it is, and we cannot change it. But we can change the story we tell ourselves about it, and by doing that, we can change the future.”
