Mind Body Run

Learn to Run or Walk Mindfully. A virtual mindful running and walking program to help you to keep physically and mentally healthy. This group offers students, staff and faculty the opportunity to take a break, get outside, and run/walk using the basic principles of mindfulness (being present in a non-judgemental mindset). On the Mind Body Run page you can access weekly mindful meditations to consider prior to each run/walk. All you have to do set the time aside to do it!

Group Therapy 

Group therapy can be beneficial by helping you find new perspectives on shared challenges, feel inclusion and relief knowing that others experience similar challenges, and allowing you to practice new skills in a supportive group environment.

Please note: Group Therapy is an intensive experience that takes time to process and complete the weekly exercises, because of this we ask that you register for only one therapy group per term. If you are interested in participating in the same group for a second time, please contact Counselling Services before registering.
