For people living with persistent pain…
I am very fortunate to be part of a phenomenal interdisciplinary team at CHANGEpain in Vancouver, BC. We work hard to provide effective and evidence-informed care for people living with persistent pain.
Since the onset of COVD-19, we have been offering a wide range of Group Medical Visit (GMV) programs online. These programs are open to anyone living in B.C. with a valid care card. I am currently teaching three different programs:
1) Empowering You to CHANGEpain
An 8-week program teaching people how to better understand pain and play an active role in their own rehabilitation. This series is a core part of our program, and we strongly recommend that everyone coming through our clinic takes it.
2) 9-week Relaxation series
This program dives deeper into the work of stress management and relaxation training introduced in the Empowering program. We cover a wide range of tools (breathing, meditation, mindfulness, chair yoga, etc.) and look at coming to a calmer state through a holistic lens (emotions, expressive writing, forgiveness, etc.). It’s more than just relaxation practice, but you will find a lot of practice in the sessions.
3) 5-week Sleep series
This program dives into a comprehensive and pain-informed cognitive-behavioural-emotional approach to improving sleep. It’s a must for anyone struggling with sleep.
At CHANGEpain, I work to support people playing a more active role in their successful pain management and recovery. If you would one-on-one coaching in this area, I am also available for private coaching at CHANGEpain (in-person and online). I have minimal availability due to COVID-19 circumstances, but if you are interested, please email me at email@example.com to see if we can arrange a mutually convenient time.
