Supporting You Through Social Distancing

Supporting You Through Social Distancing2020-04-01T21:18:07+00:00

If you are finding it challenging to adjust to the social distancing or self isolation lifestyle you are not alone. As a result of COVID-19, many people are feeling added stress and anxiety in these unprecedented and uncertain times. 

Woman social distancing by working from home

As we adjust our lifestyles to this “new normal”, there is a lot of uncertainty. This can impact our physical, mental, and even financial health if we are experiencing an overabundance of stress. When our bodies are under extreme stress or under stress for an extended period of time, we go into ‘survivor mode’ and our central nervous system triggers stress responses. If we don’t continue to practice a mental health routine that balances our brain and hormones, we may experience elevated anxiety and/or depression symptoms, as well as lower our immune system. 

If you are feeling one or some of these emotions, know that it is a completely normal and human response to this situation. And this page is packed with helpful information, tools, and resources for you to work at balancing your brain, and dealing with the potential stresses and anxieties that come along with social distancing.

Moving Operations Online

The safety of our community is our first priority. In order to support our community in social distancing, we have moved our operations online & by telephone. With the exception of neurofeedback, all of our services can be offered by a secure online video coaching platform or by telephone.

If you would like to book an online appointment the best way to do it is to request an appointment online. Generally, we have a 12-48 hour response time to inquiries but you will hear back within 3-12 hours during this time. You can also leave a message on our office phone which we are checking regularly, and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

Discounts on Service Packages

It’s important during these times to support one another. We feel like the role we can play here is to make our services more accessible for you so you can have any extra support you need during this uncertain time.

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy is the service we believe is of most value during this time because it is the most effective technique to mitigate stress as well as anxiety, depression, and grief symptoms which are often more prevalent or intense with social distancing. We have assembled some discounted session packages.

Adjusting to this new normal is not easy. These resources have been developed specifically to support you and your community in adapting.

Staying Socially Connected while Social Distancing

By |March 27th, 2020|Categories: Healthy Relationships, Social Distancing Tips|

Did you know that a lack of social connection creates a greater health risk than smoking, obesity, or high blood pressure? Now, with all that is going on in the world right now that does not mean that we should ignore social distancing to maintain connection. Instead, we need to adapt and find new ways to connect with people while we are socially distancing.

Social Distancing Tips: Create a “Calming Corner” at Home

By |March 24th, 2020|Categories: Social Distancing Tips, Stress Management|

While we're practicing social distancing and social isolation it is especially important to reflect personally in order to keep our brains and central nervous systems in balance.  A Calming Corner can be created anywhere in your home, for everyone in the home. It is a place where you feel comfortable, and it is a space that is quiet and private where you will not be interrupted. 

6 Ways to Naturally Boost Your Immune System

By |March 16th, 2020|Categories: Social Distancing Tips|

There is no 'quick fix' or 'one thing' you can do to boost your immune system and stay healthy. The body is complex and there are a number of key practices we can do to reduce inflammation and the release of cortisol, which are linked to a healthy immune system. By doing these practices, you can fight off invading viruses, bacteria, and other forms of disease.

Healthy Relationships in Social Isolation

[Back to Top] [Back to Resources]

Being isolated with one person (whether it’s a partner, roommate, or friend) for days and weeks on end can bring new challenges to any relationship. Alternatively, not being able to see someone you care about for an extended period of time because of social distancing can also pose challenges. These resources are developed to support your relationships through this time.
