Emotional Abuse is No Stranger to Strong Women. | elephant journal

“…your heart is meant to be held by someone who sees just how far your love can stretch, yet never tests the limits.

Someone who knows that your strength rivals that of an MMA fighter, but lets you rest into them anyway.

Someone who loves your fire, holds your spirit, ignites your heart, and protects your soul.”

If you’ve ridden the roller coaster, you know it doesn’t feel like a choice.

Dear Ottawa Peeps,

This is your invitation to a Self Compassion in Nature Retreat (both online and COVID-safe in person options).

In this retreat a limited number of participants will experience Mindful Self Compassion practices designed to nourish the parts of you that have been working so hard supporting clients, family members and your community during these pandemic months.

For those who choose the in-person retreat option we will practice together with safe social distancing in a beautiful nature setting approximately 30 minutes from Ottawa.*

This retreat will include guided practice drawn from my 15 years of teaching mindfulness and compassion practice, and guiding Mindful Self Compassion courses in the research-based curriculum developed by Drs. Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer from University of Texas at Austin and Harvard Medical School respectively.

*A vegetarian lunch and snacks will be included for those who register for the in-person retreat.

Please register for either the online or in-person nature retreat by calling 613-656-3331 or by going to the Courses link at www.ottawariverpsychology.com.

In-person retreat registration closes by October 15.

I look forward to deepening our self compassion together, in service of our well-being, and the well-being of our clients and communities.

Kindness,
Kim

IMS Book Club | Awake in the Wild: Mark Coleman – Insight Meditation Society

Mark is a wise and sensitive teacher, and his teachings on deepening mindful awareness in nature have transformed my relationship to the living world. I am happy to see the book club at Insight Meditation Society is featuring his work.

Three Steps to Understanding Your Partner’s Emotions

any clear expression of one partner’s emotional experience of the moment does greatly increase the accuracy of the perception of the other partner in that moment. In other words, it really doesn’t pay to hide your feelings in couples therapy—but it does pay to give expression of emotions the attention they deserve.

Angry or overheated when talking about emotions? Try these steps: Chunk it down, pause, reflect.

Upaddha Sutta: Half (of the Holy Life)

After our Ottawa River Psychology team meeting today I was reflecting on the supreme gift it is to work with good people.

Lo and behold later in the evening when I sat with the venerable Luong Por Viradhammo of the Tisarana monastery in Perth, Ontario the teaching was on the value of association with admirable people as half of the most meaningful kind of life.

Our Story

Dr. Kimberly Sogge C.Psych. Registered Clinical Health Psychologist, IMTA certified mindfulness teacher, CMSC certified MSC teacher. I specialize in evidence based psychological treatments for health and performance that integrate mindfulness and compassion. ACT, CFT, CBT-E, MiCBT, MSC, MBCT, Maudsley FBT.

I hold a Ph.D. from the APA accredited program in Psychology from Texas A&M University, and my doctoral residency was at the University of Texas at Austin’s Student Health Center Behavioral Medicine Unit. My post doctoral work was in the Medical Simulation program and the Olin B. Teague V.A. Hospital PTSD Unit within the Texas A&M College of Medicine.

I have 25+ years of professional experience in mental health, healthcare, medical education, research, academics and hospital leadership. I have been honoured to hold positions as Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at the Texas A&M College of Medicine, Health Psychologist at Alberta Children’s Hospital, Chief of Psychology Professional Practice at the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group, and Director of Child, Adolescent and Families Mental Health at the Clara Martin Center in Vermont. Inspired by what I have learned from the best organizations in health and mental health, I founded my own private practice in psychology.

My original solo practice has grown into the Ottawa River Psychology Group, a group of psychologists and registered psychotherapists who share a commitment to evidence based practice, diversity, inclusion, collaboration, and the integration of mindfulness and compassion into clinical interventions in the Third Wave of the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy tradition. Interventions that belong to the Third Wave include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness Integrated CBT, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Mindful Self Compassion training, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and others.
