Pink Flowers Blossom

Mindful Connections was established in 2018 with the aim of slowly breaking down the stigma and shame that is often associated with sexual wellness and mental health. Both founders retain qualifications and training in and around Psychology and Social sciences. Therefore, Mindful Connections was started around the passion that lies within human connection.

We endeavour to engage with communities and people, sharing experiences, ideologies and working towards finding solutions together. We are also passionate about education and taking part in "controversial" societal issues. We strive to make positive changes, even if it is allowing others the courage to think outside of the box.

Everyone has a need to connect

Certified Life coach 

Rhodes College, Vancouver, BC, Canada


Being a student for quite some time in my life, I really developed a passion with working with young adults and students trying to find their own path. I have found that people in general just need some encouragement and support to make lemonade out of life’s lemons to embrace change. Above all, I believe in the resilience of people, in that we all have the innate ability to be the writers of our own stories.

As a bilingual counsellor,  I have an immense respect for the diversity in language, culture, religion and sexual orientation. A special interest of mine lies within the field of human sexuality and sexual/reproductive health, as well as working with couples.
