Our Story

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 feel 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.

Healing Through Storytelling

The healing power of storytelling is a concept that has been recognized across cultures and throughout history. Personal narratives can have a profound impact on ones mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Storytelling can be a powerful tool for emotional expression, connection, and healing, allowing you to navigate and transcend your personal struggles and from strength and resilience through your narratives. 

Lotus in Bloom
Your Story Matters

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. 

The Story Behind Our
Logo 

The lotus naturally comes in a variety of colours. It grows at its own pace, one petal at a time, emerging through mud and murky surroundings. Its roots are anchored in mud, and it rises above its gloomy environment. Regardless of its roots and context, the lotus remains pure and continues its growth as nature intended. The lotus has a unique daily cycle of life, death, and rebirth. It holds great resistance to its environment. Each night it submerges into the murky river, and re-blooms each morning without residue from its environment.​


Despite its durability, the trauma of natural disasters can tear its root system, but the seed survives and can survive for thousands of years without water. After experiencing trauma, the seed scatters the water in seeking to restore abundance, once normal water levels return it reconnects to the earth and begins to grow again.

 

What allows the lotus to continue its growth is its built-in biological awareness of its true essence. Rather than aimlessly scattering the water, it seeks stable grounds where it can safely expose its roots and continue to grow.
