Who We Serve
Clients receive psychotherapy to help them deal with personal, emotional, mental, and spiritual difficulties.
Life (and the news!) presents lots of reasons to feel anxious. And that anxiety presents in many different ways: rumination, self-criticism, negative body image, feeling stuck, playing small. We’ll support you to map out and navigate your unique path so you can feel confident, connected, and excited by life.
Wouldn’t it be so nice if there were a recipe for that relationship you’ve been longing for? It turns out there is! We work with clients who are looking to get in a relationship or are already in one to unpack their own hang-ups and fears. We’ll teach you the recipe for building a relationship that feels satisfying, fun, and connected.
There’s no single path to success, and it can be a scary thing to set your sights on a dream and go after it. But what we do know is that true success means aligning your external world to one that feels good internally. We support ambitious professionals and entrepreneurs line themselves up emotionally for success… and enjoy the ride!
Parenthood is intense: intensely wonderful, and intensely scary. We support new parents who just need to vent, who want to offer their children something better than what they experienced growing up, who are struggling with the transition, or who are trying to figure out the balance of parenting, partnering, and being an individual.
Neurofeedback (NFB), also called neurotherapy, is a type of biofeedback that presents real-time feedback from brain activity in order to reinforce healthy brain function through operant conditioning. Typically, electrical activity from the brain is collected via sensors placed on the scalp using electroencephalography (EEG), with feedback presented using video displays or sound. There is significant evidence supporting neurotherapy for generalized treatment of mental disorders,  and it has been practiced over four decades, although never gaining prominence in the medical mainstream. NFB is relatively non-invasive and is administered as a long-term treatment option, typically taking a month to complete.
Several neurofeedback protocols exist, with additional benefit from use of quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG) or functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to localize and personalize treatment. Related technologies include functional near-infrared spectroscopy-mediated (fNIRS) neurofeedback, hemoencephalography biofeedback (HEG) and fMRI biofeedback.
Studies of Neurofeedback’s long-term effects suggest that symptoms improve after the first treatment and stay stable throughout the therapy duration. Attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity all improved after 6 months and remained steady after 2 years, according to research.
The success rate commonly quoted by clinicians and in published scientific research for neurofeedback for certain conditions is 75%-80%.

Anyone aged three and above who is having difficulties with their brain can benefit. Behavior, emotions, processing speed, attention, sleep, frustration tolerance, and other factors are all influenced by the brain. Clients can overcome these challenges with the aid of new technologies that help them regulate their nervous system and brain.
Life can bring big challenges: navigating dreams and goals, establishing and maintaining relationships, finding a place in the world, balancing family and individual needs, to name just a few. We support clients through cutting-edge technologies and up-to-date research on the therapies that best support your thriving.

After two months visiting Plum Mental Health, I would say that my stress levels and in consequence my anxiety levels have reduced a lot. I went back to being the person I used to be before I let anxiety be the center of my life.
I have been seeing Bryn since 2017 and I have experienced so much healing and transformation since then. I am so appreciative and thankful for the progress I have made with Bryn. I am always learning something new and am constantly redefining and challenging life concepts.
Bryn is an extremely professional and hard working counsellor. She is devoted to her work with her clients, passionate and always growing. Week after week she brings much needed insight and encouragement.
After struggling with a stressful work schedule and pain management for some time, I decided to give neurofeedback a try. It has absolutely improved my ability to cope with stressful situations, and my overall self awareness. It’s also a great time to simply sit, relax, and be in the moment. Bryn is also an excellent psychotherapist. I trust she has my well being and best interests at heart.
