SOMETHING NEW IS COMING IN 2020

I have been working away on a new group coaching program for people in recovery: something developmental, that'll support growth. It'll help you progress in your recovery and it'll give you insight into where you've been. I have taken what I've learned from the previous iteration of my group coaching program (Integral Recovery Toronto - see below) and I've upgraded it. I can't wait to share it with you. Details coming soon. This program will be a weekly live online group coaching program, beginning in spring 2020. I am finally getting my newsletter together; email me to subscribe: melissa@strongarm.ca #iloveyoukeepgoing

 

INTEGRAL RECOVERY TORONTO: 
MEANINGFUL PERSONAL SKILLS AND AWARENESS DEVELOPMENT FOR PEOPLE IN RECOVERY FROM
ALCOHOL + DRUG ADDICTION

In 2018 I created and ran a group coaching program - Integral Recovery Toronto - for people in recovery from addiction to build new skills and capabilities in: their inner worlds, relationships, behaviours, mind/body connection, and meditation.

The coaching group outcomes:

  • Deepening of self-awareness.

  • Peer support.

  • Weekly practices to support development.

  • Understanding of the most comprehensive recovery map from addiction that’s available: the Integral map, and how to apply to recovery.

  • A detailed self-assessment of next steps for development in recovery,, upon completion of the group.


Recovery from alcoholism and addiction is one of the hardest things you’ll ever do.

 

INTEGRAL RECOVERY TORONTO GROUP COACHING TESTIMONIALS

Melissa provided a safe space for us to speak our minds and feel completely supported. The integral approach confirmed my beliefs that recovery must be viewed holistically; there is no “one stop shop” – to recover from addiction. The four different quadrants offer complimentary perspectives on what is needed to exist in this world and feel more at ease and most importantly - whole. I walked away from this program with more knowledge and tools in my toolbox that I have begun to utilise today. I don’t want to just be sober, I want to have a quality life, and this program has helped me get to point where I feel confident that I can have that.

If you want to strive not just survive in your recovery this is the program for you Integral Recovery Program. It offers you the tools and resources to take your recovery to the next level. Melissa offers a soothing, calm environment where participants  mediate,explore our thinking and offer suggestions regarding our recovery. Melissa has the ability to provide one on one coaching within the group and is not just your every day cut and paste program. She is very in tune with your needs and is an amazing facilitator and great listener. Her ability to navigate participants to individually step out of old behavior and habits and  guide you to embrace the new. Truly an incredible program for individuals seeking a higher quality of life in their recovery.

SHAPING THE FUTURE OF HEALING CONFERENCE 2017

Presentation on Integral Recovery Toronto

 

INTEGRAL RECOVERY TORONTO

Thrive in Recovery from Addiction

Recovery from alcoholism and addictions is a lifelong journey. I believe that an approach to recovery and to life must include personal development.


I am really interested in making spaces for people in recovery to work on their personal development, and I am trying this out in the form of Integral Recovery groups: an 8-week course that I am facilitating.

I presented about this topic at the Inner Arts Collective's conference Shaping the Future of Healing

November 17-19, 2017 in Toronto. This conference was for practitioners of the healing arts, to improve our individual and collective impact in the communities we serve.
