You'll learn how your brain works, why it does what it does, and how to work with it instead of fighting against it.
While we'll learn background concepts, we'll focus on meaningful applications that can seamlessly integrate into your life.
Each module is short, sweet and under an hour in length, to easily fit into your busy schedule.
Each week you'll receive a new video module, while you navigate the accompanying workbook at your own pace.
You will learn the fundamentals of how your brain and body are impacted by exposure to persistent stress and predictable unpredictability. Understanding this will give you insight into why you struggle, and is the jumping off point to make some changes.
You will learn to step back from survival mode and see the forest for the trees. You will learn to look with clarity on where you are at and how to plan intentional and strategic steps to move you to something better.
You will develop key skills sets that will support your sustainability at work, but even better, will help you come home and be with the people you care most about while still feeling like YOU.
You will walk away with a completely personalized bomb-proof action plan to keep yourself on track.

My name is Lindsay Faas.
I am a lot of things: I am a clinical counsellor who has specialized in trauma therapy for over a decade. I have spent much of my career working with every kind of First Responder and Front Line Worker, including military personnel. I am also the owner and director of a large counselling practice in Fort Langley, BC (Canada). Outside of the office, I am a wife and a mom to two young kiddos who are covered in bruises because they believe they can fly (remember being that blissfully naive?). In the midst of all these things, I am full of ideas and want to make what I've learned readily accessible to those who need it, and during this course, I am your personal guide to transforming how you think about your work and your life, and I am going to help you to gain keys skills for wellness and sustainability.
What you'll get from me is every ounce of wisdom gained from over a decade of working with people from all walks of life, broken down into totally learnable, doable skills that will transform how you engage in your work, with your family, with your friends and with your own self.

While the program is not therapy, it is a distilled version of the most essential information for resilience. The content includes hours worth of value-packed information, tools and resources that could never be condensed in this way within the context of conventional therapy. Within therapy it would typically take 10+ sessions (at $145+/session) to get this volume of information - we give it all to you in less time for a fraction of the cost. While this program is not therapy, it is an awesome partner to therapy and can significantly enhance the work of therapy.
