About Lotus Therapy
Your Healing journey begins here.
The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty.
We all encounter roadblocks somewhere along the way keeping us from our best life. At Lotus Therapy, we believe that resilience lies within all of us and just like the lotus flower we grow even in mud. Many of us get stuck in the mud and fail to see our inner strengths and self-healing capacity.
It is our honor as professional counsellors to provide a safe and non-judgmental space and to walk alongside you in your journey.
We specialize in treating trauma in empirically supported ways.
Clients come to us with a wide variety of trauma-related experiences, including PTSD, complex trauma, anxiety, childhood adversity, abuse, sexual assault, accidents, illness, attachment issues, interpersonal challenges, grief and loss, and depression.
Healing Through Self-compassion.
