Are you feeling overwhelmed by life and the monotony of the daily grind? Are things such as stress, depression, anxiety, anger, sadness, grief, loss or addiction getting in the way of your happiness? Are you having relationship or family issues, going through a tough transition or have you recently been diagnosed with a terminal or life-threatening illness? Through a mindfulness-based approach, my hope is to help you through your challenges by empowering you with new tools that best reflect your needs and ultimately help you cope better and evolve negative patterns. 
 
Hello, my name is Colleen Fava and I am happy that you found me. I offer counselling, psychotherapy and reiki services to:

My office is located in downtown Guelph, Ontario. I also offer in-home, telephone and online sessions. I offer a safe and calm space to help with your healing process. 
 
I use a variety of tools depending on what fits best for the individual. The list below is a sampling of tools that may help. However, the steps are ultimately up to my clients. Often it is a combination of the tools listed below that are most effective:
*talk therapy (cognitive behavioural therapy and interpersonal therapy)
*experiential therapy (including body psychotherapy, mindfulness, meditation, visualization, dream work and art therapy)
*energy work (including reiki, sound therapy and chakra work)
 
All with the ultimate intention of making space for happiness and my clients’ specific life goals.

I have been practising counselling and psychotherapy since January 2015 and am a registered member with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and Spiritual Directors International.
 
A second degree reiki practitioner, I volunteered with Hospice Toronto from 2006 to 2011, where I was partnered with children to provide support while their parents/caregivers were dying. I also worked with individuals who were terminally ill and dying who needed assistance with their physical and emotional needs.
 
Passionate about working with the dying and their families and friends, I believe we can do a better job in North America when it comes to honouring our loved ones while they are transitioning as well as supporting ourselves/their caregivers in grieving.
 
I also volunteered at the Wellbeing Initiative in Downtown Toronto which supported those struggling with addiction and/or mental health issues.
 
Prior to this work, I had a stressful corporate position and understand the challenges of finding balance in this type of environment. 
 
Contact me for your initial consultation. Looking forward to connecting soon.
