Beyond Awareness was inspired by the voice of thousands of clients served over a period of almost two decades. We have experience with diverse clients of all ages and varying family dynamics who despite their best efforts find themselves in a "revolving door of failed attempts" consumed by shame, in addition to those who feel they have nowhere to turn. We believe change needs to happen at a systemic level for our clients to achieve the best outcomes. Your feedback helps identify gaps in services, improve quality of care, & engage in going evaluation.
We know from the research, mental health conditions have reached an all time high with more people being medicated than ever before, and at a much younger age. This implicates that widely used conventional treatment may not be the answer, at least for the majority. It suggests a need for ongoing education and evaluation of services provided.
It's not uncommon for professionals express "the client is not ready to change" rather than self-reflection and quality assurance. Which may be true in some cases, but ultimately we need to collectively create an environment that promotes growth. The diversity of our clients have taught us to be mindful in our approach to avoid assumptions and engage in self-evaluations.
No one should have to suffer in silence, feel they have no one and nothing to turn to, or feeling undervalued.
We work from a capacity building model and tailor our approach to address your unique needs. We focus on building a stronger relationship to self, which can be a painful process but one you don't have to go through alone.
Our role as a temporary figure in your life is to help you embark on a journey of self-discovery, one that will ultimately guide you in the direction towards fulfillment and achieving your desired outcomes.
Your Voice, Your Experience &
Your Needs Are What Matter Most
Many of our past clients have a longstanding history of engaging in various programs and treatments that they describe as having too many expectations, criteria, limits, and lacks continuation of care where they eventually find themselves right where they started. This can be discouraging to say the least and more so a reflection of the barriers and limited resources available to those who need it most.
Like you we encounter experiences that are not ideal and make mistakes, where we can allow ourselves to be consumed by them or we can decide to embrace the experience as a learning opportunity for growth.
Of course easier said than done, which is where we come in.
You don't have to go through it alone.
