    Hello and Welcome!

    Sojourn Wellness is a space for individuals to talk about their experiences, be heard, valued and feel a sense of belonging. We are here to support you to identify your strengths, develop the courage to be imperfect, face life challenges, find your purpose, build resilience, change, grow and be your authentic self on your journey to a healthy lifestyle. We provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment with understanding and respect. Sojourn has a holistic approach incorporating all aspects of the individual (psychological, social, emotional, physical and spiritual) and committed to services for multicultural/diverse clients. We are social beings with the goal of belonging and making a contribution to our community and society. Our behaviour is goal directed, and our subjective view influences how we interpret events in our lives. It is not what happens, but how one deals with it.

    Online/Distance Services are easy to access, and studies show that it is effective. According to Hilty et al. (2013), “Telemental health is effective and increases access to care.” (Source: US National Institutes of Health National Library of Medicine, Telemedicine Journal and e-Health – The Effectiveness of Telemental Health: A 2013 Review) “Telepsychiatry is equivalent to in-person care in diagnostic accuracy, treatment effectiveness, and patient satisfaction; it often saves time, money and other resources.” (Source: American Psychiatric Association – History of Telepsychiatry)

    It is a pleasure and a privilege to have the opportunity to support you on your journey.

    Be Well and Stay Safe!
