Meet Sally

 

Sally Jade Powis-Campbell  //  Oh hi there — I’d love to meet you in person, but this will do for now! Let me introduce myself. I’m Sally. I’m a Registered Psychologist in Alberta. I’m also a meditation guide, yoga instructor, writer (stay tuned for a mindfulness book coming in 2017!), mindful food artist, & public experience maker/speaker! 

At my core, I see myself as a playful helper working with patients of all ages — young & young at heart — in individual, couple, family, & group settings. I take a collaborative approach with clients to attend to individual &/or family intentions with therapy. 

With curious awareness in your daily lived experience, you can experience more JOY & less STRESS… & literally change the structure & function of your brain to help you focus better & improve your relationship with yourself, those around you, & how you look at life… now who wouldn’t want that?

Wholistic Health YYC’s practice is rooted in WHOLISM, which involves mindfully attending to each person or family unit as a WHOLE person — including body-mind-spirit integration, as well as the social & environmental factors influencing one’s situation. Depending on areas of growth & personal interests, psychological & educational work can include mindfulness meditation, food+mood journaling, thought & body sensation tracking, breathing techniques spanning goals of energizing to relaxing, mindful movement such as yoga, eating & food play exercises, art, gratitude journaling, crafting essential oils to support health, personal intentions & mantra creation. 

The branches of my practice that have grown through professional training & personal experience to include the following therapy modalities & presenting concerns I work with:

  • CHILD PSYCHOLOGY (play therapy, social skills, mindfulness-based interventions for age 2+ to address issues from peer rejection to behavioural regulation)
  • MINDFULNESS-BASED INTERVENTIONS FOR ALL AGES
  • MINDFUL MOVEMENT & YOGA
  • MINDFUL EATING & EATING DISORDERS & PICKY EATING
  • MINDFULNESS FOR ATHLETES (mPEAK training) & SPORT PSYCHOLOGY
  • NUTRITION PSYCHOLOGY & FOOD + MOOD THERAPY
  • COMMUNICATON
  • FAMILY THERAPY (communication, separation/divorce, mindful mamas)
  • MOM LIFE (mommy mindfulness, anxiety, depression, food + mood therapy for moms and families, mindful meal prep, mindful eating for moms/families, self care)
  • PSYCHOAROMATHERAPY (the study of how essential oils impact brain chemistry)

In addition to my practice, I’m passionate about my role as a mother & wife, & my pastimes of writing, yoga, running, strength training, spinning, & cooking. In a previous career I was a TV news reporter; today I continue my love for journalism by blogging & doing freelance writing.
