Workshops

At Strawberry Medicine Counselling Inc., we've been helping our clients overcome life's difficulties for years. Our mental health counselling services are designed to help our clients process their emotions and challenges in a safe and supportive environment. We've recently started offering an Indigenous Mental Health Workshop, which is aimed at helping our clients build a culturally appropriate understanding of mental health issues. If you're looking for compassionate and confidential mental health support, look no further than Strawberry Medicine Counselling Inc.

Strawberry Medicine Wheel

Our signature program, the Strawberry Medicine Wheel healing circle is a gateway to open the door to your truth and is grounded in Indigenous knowledge systems of wellness. Teachings are shared on how to nurture our medicine bundles when imbalanced so we can be our medicine and be medicine for our people. This is done by embracing the glimmers in our lives that ring truth to our spirits like a bell going off in our hearts. A knowing. A remembering. A calling back to ourselves. An unearthing but also an inventing of ourselves. Connecting and identifying our needs and practicing balance within ourselves to become more resilient.

The Strawberry Medicine Wheel includes global clinical therapy techniques such as the NARM developmental trauma model so we can understand how unmet needs at different developmental stages can cause imbalances within our medicine wheel and how we can become empowered to restore balance. This includes psycho-education on “Intro to trauma” and the fight/flight/freeze response and how we can override this system to regain control over how we respond to our environment.

The Strawberry Medicine Wheel presents guideposts to assist people in engaging in life from a place of worthiness and cultivating wholehearted living. This workshop builds resiliency and understanding of self through self-reflection, understanding, and compassion. 

The Strawberry Medicine Wheel is different from traditional medicine wheels as I have brought Love/Sexuality into the Strawberry Medicine Wheel as a means to revitalize Indigenous Love and vital sexuality to heal the broken love bonds and sexual trauma that are the legacy of residential school. So, the “E-Motion quadrant” is brought into the middle and recalibrated to the “E-Motion Core” where we learn to honour our e-motions and use them as sacred guidance for our path and become more fully present with the world around us.

A Strawberry Medicine Bundle is offered to each participant and includes a workbook, a journal, 11x17 Strawberry Medicine Wheel, a 7 Direction Smudge Blend medicine pouch.

The Strawberry Medicine Wheel is offered with various options:

  1. Three Day Deep healing event with the 170 page workbook and attendee medicine bundle

  2. One Day Healing Event that includes the core teachings with a 50 page workbook and attendee medicine bundle

  3. Facilitators Training: Learn how to use your unique medicine bundle to deliver this amazing program to your organization or community!

Emotion Focused Family Therapy

Follows the principles and practices of Emotionally Focused Therapy to restore connection and promote resilience in family relationships. The principle goal of EFFT is to re-establish more secure family patterns where attachment and caregiving responses are effective and emotional bonds are repaired. These resources inform a network of security that provides the flexibility and closeness necessary for families to promote individual growth and meaningful relationships across generations. The EFT process of change in EFFT focuses on stabilizing a family’s negative interaction pattern, restructuring parent and child interactions, and consolidating the felt security gained through these new patterns of connection. Following principles of attachment science, the EFT therapist guides the family to new patterns of parental availability, responsiveness, and coherent attachment communications as they face developmental change and life challenges.

The 3-day workshop is a great opportunity for caregivers to acquire essential skills and techniques to support their child's development from 6 to 18 years old. During this workshop, caregivers will have the time and space to engage in various activities that promote their learning and growth.

The workshop will cover a range of topics that include but are not limited to, understanding child development, identifying and addressing behavioral issues, fostering positive communication, and promoting emotional well-being. Caregivers will learn how to create a nurturing and supportive environment that encourages their child's social, emotional, and cognitive development.

Furthermore, the workshop will provide a platform for caregivers to network and share experiences with other parents and caregivers. Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other's experiences, providing them with a valuable support system long after the workshop is over.

Overall, the 3-day workshop is an excellent opportunity for caregivers to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to support their child's development and ensure that they grow up to be happy, healthy, and well-adjusted adults.
