Tonight's special guest is Christine Forner from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the owner, lead therapist, and supervisor at Associated Counselling. Among her specialties is treating DID, Dissociative Identity Disorders. Associated Counselling is a unique counseling agency that utilizes some of the newest and most effective therapies, techniques, and tools to assist people in healing the emotional, relational, physical, and mental aspects of their lives. They also specialize in dealing with PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. According to Christine, the issues they deal with ".. are common and not talked about by anyone, other than myself." She explains, "It has to do with the primary directive of dissociation and the brain function of mindfulness. One is about not being aware and one about awareness. They rival one another and dissociation, as it is about emergency survival and therefore more primitive, will win." She and her therapists offer assessments for individuals with legal matters, and counseling using a variety of tools including a successful meditation technique created exclusively for this population. They education individuals, families, friends, post-secondary school systems & professionals, and advocacy within a variety of settings. Christine explains they work with gifted and talented individuals, children, adolescents, and adults. "We aid clients to further understand their physical, emotional, mental, and imaginative selves in order to create balanced health." Christine concludes, "Using neurofeedback techniques, we assist gifted people in gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and their talents. We also use various creative meditation techniques to allow individuals to bring a greater sense of control to their body, mind, and emotions with mindfulness meditation."
