Flow Psychology

Lindsay Day, Fernie’s new Registered Clinical Counsellor, is excited to  be offering individual and couples counselling sessions. 

Throughout Lindsay’s clinical experience, she has found that problems come up when people are living out of step with their values. Problems also arise when people have had difficult life experiences that shape their beliefs about themselves, others and the world. Often, people develop coping strategies to help manage their lives, but these coping strategies can cause more harm than help. Lindsay helps her clients examine belief systems that no longer work for them, build new skills and coping strategies, all while leveraging their natural strengths. She helps her clients clarify their values and how they can live in line with them. 

Zyia Active Wear - Elk Valley

Local resident, Katya Choroszewski, is excited to announce that she is selling Zyia Active wear to the Elk Valley (and beyond!). She loves helping people feel confident and happy in their clothing (whether it is for workouts, the office or around town) and takes the time to help someone choose the best pieces for them.

Zyia is known for its high quality and comfortable clothing that both looks and feels good. There is clothing for women, men, and kids! Katya’s favourites that  she recommends are the magic Light n Tight leggings (lovely and compressive), the stretchy yet tapered and presentable Unwind joggers, or the cozy Oh So Soft hoodie.

You can contact Katya at zyiaactivewithkatya@gmail.com or follow her page or VIP group on Facebook (search Connect: Zyia Active with Katya - Independent Rep).
