Meyer selected for prestigious counseling fellowship

Elan Mind Body Solutions-owner to work with Dr. Gabor Maté’s Compassionate Inquiry Credentialing Program

Jasper — Holistic Therapist Shelly Meyer, CHHC, AADP, owner of Elan Mind Body Solutions, has been selected to receive a fellowship with Dr. Gabor Maté’s Compassionate Inquiry credentialing program. This 240-hour, year-long graduate-level program with Dr. Maté is designed for therapists and health professionals for professional development with access to certification at the end of the course.

“Using this model will allow me to unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real messages in clients that their words both express and conceal,” Shelly Meyer said. “All of this allows me to better understand my clients and, ultimately, help them heal and get them in touch with their truest self.”

Dr. Gabor Maté is one of the leading international experts on the topics of addiction, stress and childhood development. He is a bestselling author of four books published in over twenty-five languages. His book on addiction received the Hubert Evans Prize for literary non-fiction. He is a highly sought-after speaker on his expertise on addiction, trauma, child development and the relationship of stress and illness. For his work, he has been awarded the Order of Canada and the Civic Merit Award from the city of Vancouver.

Meyer will be completing a course focused on Compassionate Inquiry beginning in February 202. Compassionate Inquiry, created by Dr. Maté and developed by Sat Dharam Kaur ND, is a psycho-therapeutic method for facilitating physical, mental and emotional healing. Through Compassionate Inquiry, the therapist and client learn the unconscious dynamics that plague the clients, and, ultimately, put together a plan to change.

This process was developed for working with human beings struggling with various personal and health issues that need gentle guidance in navigating the unhealthy relationship to their own selves. It gently uncovers and releases the layers of childhood trauma, constriction and suppressed emotion embedded in the body, that are at the root of illness and addiction. The benefits of this course include becoming more aware of the verbal and non-verbal cues of clients and becoming more effective in working with clients among many others. 

Currently, Meyer owns and operates Elan Mind Body Solutions. As a holistic therapist, she helps her clients get past their past and release stress, anxiety and trauma through a body-oriented approach. She helps her clients to gain clarity on issues of the heart including relationships, career and other life challenges. She has extensive experience with trauma, PTSD, family conflict, self-exploration and development among many others. Elan Mind Body Solutions serves men and women of all ages.
