Madrie Secord : Financial Strategies As We Age

Minimize financial anxiety, protect your savings, and maintain independence and dignity in your later years.
I have combined my personal and professional experiences to help meet the financial challenges of as we age.

Jen Nicholson : Connections: metaphors to tame Anxiety

Surfing the wave,… a helicopter view,…..the beach ball of thoughts,…. boats down the river… these metaphors can help us relate to and cope with anxiety more effectively. Jen will explore some Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) approaches to cope creatively with anxiety and other unpleasant emotions.

Dr. Nick Bianchi : Anxiety & The Body

How is Anxiety affecting your physical health?  Can poor health choices create Anxiety?  How can we incorporate physical therapies to treat Anxiety?  In every situation there is the person, their body and their Anxiety…how can these three components work together instead of against each other?

Dr. Colette Harman :  Your Breathing Can Cause Anxiety

As a naturopathic doctor and a practitioner of the Buteyko Breathing Technique, I have come to recognize that over breathing i.e.: hyperventilation, can bring on and exacerbate anxiety, every, single time! I’ll discuss what hyperventilation is, how to discover whether you have it and a few simple breathing techniques to help stop and resolve anxiety and panic.

Reilly Scott : Breaking the Silence

My journey with anxiety has been long and full of deep learning and self realization. It has been one of the most difficult, yet enriching parts of my life, challenging me to reach deep within myself to experience who I truly am and what I want to offer in this life.  I am moved to use performance and public speaking to share the gifts hidden within the struggle.  We are not alone. We don’t need to feel shame and isolation. We are not broken.

Nancy Osborne CD : I GOT THIS

Nancy is an accomplished speaker and has presented to audiences from Afghanistan to New York. For years Nancy found herself as the first or only woman in the most misogynistic boy’s clubs in the world. Her stories are laced with humour but her “I Got This” message of stepping into your power and trusting your instincts inspires others to make their presence undeniable and their voices resonate.
