Mindfulness for Living Skillfully

Dr. Lynette Monteiro: My primary work is through the Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic M4 Programs which I co-founded in 2003; I serve as Senior Teacher & Professional Training Director. The M4 (Mindfulness for) approach is designed to help you meet the challenges of life as they present themselves. We are, for the most part, healthy and capable of getting through the difficulties we encounter day by day. However, when we are depleted or stretched beyond our resources, we encounter our limitations. How we meet those limitations directs the trajectory to wellness. In the M4-Pain Management and the M4-Wellness as a Healthcare Professional, we learn together how to meet our challenges and learn from them. The M4 Program is an 8-week training in Mindfulness that incorporates a values-based framework in our practice. It is described in our book, Mindfulness Starts here: An 8-week guide to skillful living, co-authored with Dr. Frank Musten, PhD, C.Psych.

Individual Therapy - Buddhist Psychology

For individual appointments, please contact the office by phone. A physician's referral may be required. As a long-time Buddhist practitioner and a student of Buddhist Psychology, I take a Buddhist-focused approach in therapy for clients who wish to explore their difficulties through this framework. To ensure the best fit to this modality, I will meet with you for an initial session so that I am informed of your perspectives and aspirations to effect change in your life.
