Seeing Me...Six weeks to changing the way you see, think, and feel about YOU!
Unhealthy self-esteem, not appreciating one’s worth, and not having self-compassion impacts people of all ages, cultures, occupations and economic classes and includes those from different religious, political, sexual orientation, intellectual and academic backgrounds.
Seeing Me is a virtual 6-week psycho-educational group program intended to nurture healthy self-esteem in youth (16+) and adults. The program integrates CBT theory & techniques, Acceptance & Compassion therapy, mindfulness and meditation research and the biopsychosocial or whole-human perspective. Founder of Reflexion Point, Nel Keath, developed this program 11 years ago recognizing the impact healthy self-esteem, self-worth and self-compassion has on overcoming trauma, having resilience to life stresses, and in the confidence to create a happy and balanced life. She has facilitated groups (in person and virtually) in private and corporate environments in Ontario.
