I’m leaving feeling better about myself than when I came in, and I gained tools to help me work through my guilt instead of holding onto it.
“The Identity & Guilt Workshop made me realize that I am just as important as everyone else”
Thanks for the last session. There were definitely some interesting lightbulbs that went off. I’m glad you challenge me and get me to look at things a different way. I need that.
I just wanted to thank you for the workshop. So much stood out to me and I really learned so much. I loved hearing other women’s stories, it helped to normalize what we are feeling and to feel less alone.
Jen’s Body Image Group was life changing for me.
[The Anger & Rage Workshop] was actually a great confidence booster for me, as I was able to see improvements I’ve made and that I’m doing a pretty good job with what I am doing.
Again, thanks so much for everything. I feel like I’ve learned and grown so much in the last few months since I’ve been seeing you. I understand myself better than I have in my whole life. I can finally see why I act and react and feel in certain ways and can finally start being a little more compassionate towards myself, slowly but surely. With your help I am finally able to see that people love and care for me. Not because I’ve put on a good act and hidden the bad person I’ve always thought myself to be, but because they can see through the act and love the good person that I actually am. I can never be grateful enough to you for helping me see that.
Jen is so understanding; she doesn’t judge, and she makes you feel heard. She just seems to know what to say to put things in perspective. The group setting was good because you are able to hear that you’re not alone, and hear that others are struggling with their own things and that they can relate to your struggles too.
What I liked about your workshop was trying out new things that were out of my comfort zone. Writing poetry and crafting are things I wouldn’t try on my own and they were very interesting in giving me insight. I also liked seeing how common my ‘issues’ are, and how many moms feel the same way, even if we don’t normally talk about it.
I liked the small group, intimate setting and nice space at your workshop, and that it was welcoming of babes in arms. What helped me the most was being able to listen to others share.
I felt very supported by you (and the group as a whole) and although it’s a super uncomfortable process, I appreciate your ability to gently prod and pull out the stuck emotions and then lead me through them as they’re happening. And, strangely enough, I look forward to doing it again.
Jen has such a gentle way about her that makes it easy to open up and talk about difficult emotions. She is compassionate, empathetic, kind and relatable. She has a talent for giving perspective on any issue and asking the questions that force you to really think about the issue at hand in a new way. I highly recommend her individual sessions as well as her workshops!
I attended a group session last Tuesday and totally felt inspired to be me and to be happy with myself always, physically and emotionally. I will be attending Jen’s next session. I hope some of my lovely mom friends can try it out too. There is absolutely NO shame or judgement! It really was such an amazing experience and a great way to connect with other women!
Jen is a beautiful soul and uses skillful, creative approaches in her Body Image work. I highly recommend her!
Thank you so much Jen for all the love and support that I got from you. Not only you were supportive with helping me stay positive but you also made me feel fearless and find out what I wanted. The birth affirmations from the birthing class few weeks ago were our go to!
I attended a birth preparation art night with Jen while expecting my second child. Jen’s intuition to guide the session and direct us through our own self-inquiry was truly remarkable! Her kindness, ability to draw out truth and create a safe space for this kind of delicate work is a gift. Than you for pursuing this path and sharing your gifts, Jen!
Jen was so compassionate, understanding and dedicated to the healthy and positive experience I gained in her session. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for counselling and moving towards a healthier perspective.
I attended a birth preparation one on one session with Jen and it felt so natural. She let me decide how I wanted my session to go instead of directing it. I felt super confident and relaxed after the session and I’m really happy that I attended it. There is tons that I learned about myself and my fears just from an hour long session which flew by. I highly recommend it to anyone that is pregnant or thinking about pregnancy.
I attended the body image workshop and it was very insightful. I learnt a lot about this topic and about myself.
I attended a weekend workshop with Jen. It was amazing. The session was insightful, emotional and Jen guided us through the topics with patience and understanding.
Jen is such a welcoming and kind person, I felt safe and heard. She allowed the space for things to naturally progress as needed, but also knew when to guide things and when to push me. I will be back!
Jen, I would like to express my gratitude for your openness, patience and ability to listen to me. Through that, along with your compassion and validation, I was able to heal and grow. I will always remember your kindness and the ways in which you challenged me, helping me to see things from a different perspective when things were looking hopeless, or when I was feeling incapable. Through our work together I felt heard, my needs were met, I was able to figure out what my wall was, and I learned a lot about codependency. My self esteem has grown, you’ve made a very positive impact on my journey and I’ll never forget you.
Jen, I really value and appreciate and feel grateful for the work that you’ve done. I have always felt supported, heard and cared for when working with you. This has been one of my hardest years in my life and you made it easier for me.
Jen, I appreciated the way that you have helped me - thank you for challenging me and allowing me to see things that I hadn’t seen before. I really appreciated what you brought to the group and your caring aura. Thank you so much for everything that you have done.
Thank you for all of your support. You are such a wonderful counsellor, I’m so happy to have met you and so grateful for everything you have taught me. I’m looking forward to moving on from my past and building a strong, sober life.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me find my way in life. I had trouble identifying my feelings and digging deeper; but thanks to your tremendous efforts and help - and for not giving up on me, I’ve grown in ways that I will be forever grateful.
Thank you for all of your support, guidance and dedication!
Thank you for all the support you have given me. I appreciate you helping me with my eating disorder - you helped me to open my eyes and realize that it isn’t any different from my other addictions and that I need to address it.
It has been a privilege working with you, thank you for all of your hard work and dedication and for sharing your insights and knowledge. The stars aligned when I joined your group. You have taught me life lessons, many new insights about myself and my addiction. Thank you for challenging me, supporting me, and encouraging me.
Thank you for all of the knowledge you’ve shared and more so - thank you for being such a great support.
