Helping you live your best life through warmth, compassion and evidence-based practices
We tend to tangle ourselves in the things that keep us from living our best lives.
We think of them as knots that keep you from sleeping, from being motivated, and from engaging with life. Knots that can cause anxiety and depression.
Mind Unwind Psychotherapy is here to provide the tools and support you need to understand and Unwind your Knots.

Psychotherapy Sessions with Evidence-Based Approaches
Is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that focuses on identifying patterns in your thoughts and your behaviour that are not helping you achieve your goals.
Through a series of techniques and strategies, you can learn how to change those patterns in a sustainable way.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Is a structured therapy that guides the person to briefly focus on the traumatic memory while experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements) as a way of reducing the vividness and the emotions associated with the trauma. EMDR has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and other distressing life experiences.
Virtual Reality (VR)
Controlled studies have demonstrated the effectiveness and efficiency of VR-based therapeutic interventions on mental disorders, especially anxiety and specific phobias. VR gives your therapist more control over the environment to which you are exposed. With our VR platform, you get access to virtual environments you can use to practice your skills outside of our session with the help of your phone or universal VR headset.
