It’s Not About You, It’s About Him!

Your man may be suffering from depression, a condition that is likely treatable through a specific therapeutic approach called “MAC”, or Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment therapy.

One thing we know: it’s important to treat his depression before it gets even worse.

Unlike drugs, MAC therapy has no side effects. And unlike cognitive-behavioral therapy, the MAC approach helps him deal with his emotions, not only his thoughts or his actions. As a woman, you know how important emotions are to feeling better.

The research-based methods of MAC can help him meet your needs, getting him back to being the dynamic, loving man he was when you first fell in love with him. When he learns how to be mindful, he will be able to reflect on the difficult thoughts and feelings that lead him to behave erratically, and to say or do things that hurt you. When he is able to feel and identify his feelings, rather than pushing them away, he will also stop pushing you away. And by helping him commit to what is important to him, and to take effective action towards meaningful goals, you’ll be reassured to find out that his primary commitment is to you.

I bring to my practice both formal education and extensive personal experience working with several master therapists and life teachers. In terms of formal education, I completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at the University of British Columbia, and am certified at the national level through the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) . I have studied Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy with Dr. Zindel Segal, Interpersonal Neurobiology with Dr. Dan Siegel, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy with Dr. Steven Hayes. My work is integrative, and has been endorsed by Ken Wilber, author of Integral Psychology, and Founder of Integral Institute.

You can bring back the love. Your man can feel fully alive and be back in action again. Call me at 604-440-1968 for a free 30 minute consultation!
