The Wellness Groups at SDC (Shayna Das Counselling) offer an opportunity for people living with persistent pain and/or chronic illness conditions to meet regularly and build a community of support while learning about pain, stress management, and coping strategies. Coralee Pringle-Nelson is a registered psychologist trained in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and energy psychology (EFT - Emotional Freedom Techniques). Recent research (RCT’s) found EFT treatment to be effective for (a) psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); (b) physiological issues such as pain, insomnia, and autoimmune conditions; (c) professional and sports performance; and (d) biological markers of stress. CBT, EFT and other therapeutic modalities will be used to support group participants throughout the 8 weeks.

Groups will meet at City Centre Family Physicians or online via Zoom. Each session will allow you to share your experiences, learn and discuss stress management skills, and take part in safe, gentle coping strategies as a group. Participants will also:

  • Experience connection to a supportive community who understands what it is like to live with pain and uncertainty

  • Be seen, heard, and understood just as you are

  • Talk openly about your health in a safe and confidential environment

  • Learn strategies to enhance energy and feelings of empowerment and hope

  • Learn additional information about pain and coping

  • Increase confidence and skills to live well with pain and uncertainty

  • Socialize and have a good time!
