Stress and pain may be a natural part of a full life – but it doesn’t have to cancel your subscription to your preferred future.
At Minutes to Happy I work with you to plan your wellness and travel towards greater wellbeing mentally and physically. Life brings stress but small steps bring great success.
After managing my own stress and chronic pain for years, I intimately related to the struggles my clients faced. The things that used to bring me joy started to spark my stress instead. I turned down social invites, stopped cycling, and waited for things to get better – putting my life and happiness on hold for way too long.
Because while the specialists I saw were able to give my physical health attention, my emotional needs remained unseen and unmet.
“This is where you’re needed, Gab.” My inner voice told me. “Not just in the physical, but in the emotional; being a supportive flashlight for others walking the same path with similar struggles and setbacks.”
And so, I’ve come to happily embrace my purpose: Helping women to boost their mental and physical health and develop their strengths so they can live peaceful, purposeful and productive lives.
In nature, I saw myself and my struggles illuminated clearly. As my boots broke sticks and I stood amidst the birds and the leaves, I felt my burdens lightened and loosened.
The natural world became a place where I went not only to heal, but where I escaped to take a deep breath and explore my wellness.
The natural world, and nature therapy principles inspired my signature counselling programs, the Forest Journey and the hike program.
Blending insights from nature with explorative and therapeutic healing techniques, I’ll take you on a journey from waiting and wishing for your dreams, to defining and discovering the path towards your best self and life.
It’s about pausing for a moment of peace and taking a minute to treat yourself with kindness.
