With more than 22 years of take care of people, I have come to realize that counselling is a part of our wellness. Our path to recovery includes so much more than just talking with a professional. Though counselling is important, there are many areas of our lives that work together to create our health and wellness. This is unique for everyone and may include some of the following areas; meditation, connection to family and friends, a healthy work environment, volunteering, exercise, time in nature, being organized, creativity and so on. For me, the name Emerald Path Wellness reflects my vision of wellness more so than my previous business name, "Wendy Irrinki Counselling".
At Emerald Path Wellness, there are three core values that I bring to my counselling practice. To start, people are inherently strong and resilient, much like an emerald stone. Second, we are all on a life journey and I hope to guide clients towards the right path for them. Third, I focus on overall health and wellness by encouraging clients to take care of all areas of their lives. This may include physical, mental and spiritual domains.
