Vaishali Patel is a registered psychotherapist working in private practice in Downtown Toronto. She has waged a personal and professional battle against Superwoman Syndrome, the syndrome where a woman spends all of her time, energy, and focus caring for others and depletes herself in the process. In the past decade she has gone through a number of life transitions, nothing tragic or traumatic, but ones that caused her focus on her own wellbeing to shift (marriage, moving, having children, changing jobs). Although she was a therapist the whole time, she found that it was difficult for her to keep an eye on her self care even though she was encouraging others to do so for themselves. She realized that many women with families and careers have similar experiences, and decided to develop a practice that helps women like her move forward when they’ve veered off their paths to wellness. Before private practice she was counselling since 2003 in the field of Employee Assistance Programming (EAP), gaining experience and a greater understanding of the importance of work life balance, and overall wellness of individuals.
