Sage Wellness Connection

 

Our Wellness Consultants

 
  Paula Williams-Iverson   I have a background in the field of recreation and have been involved as an athlete and as a coach for many years. I began my formal education in Recreation and Community Service Programming. I have always been interested in all areas of health and wellness for myself and others and this passion has led me to study and practice as a Holistic Health Practitioner with a keen interest in the areas of Reiki and Meditation practices and to complete a Psychological Health and Safety Certificate. I attained a Bachelor of Human Service Administration degree and chose to complete a capstone project on Wellness in the Workplace to combine my areas of interest with my work in the demanding field of Human Services. I have also recently become involved with Sage Wellness Connection as a Wellness Consultant to combine and share my passions and knowledge.

  Shannon Fife   I have had the great pleasure to work in the Human Service field for a number of years mainly with children and families. After graduating as a Recreation Therapist, a colleague and I combined our enthusiasm and passion for this industry and created a charity for high risk children. I am a true believer in nourishing all aspects of our mind, body and soul. That’s why I continue to challenge myself through furthering my education. In addition to my degree in Human Services, I chose to expand my health and wellness knowledge by completing a Psychological Health and Safety Certificate. I am currently enrolled in a Masters of Health Psychology program. This education is a great compliment to my previous education as well as my experiences around health and wellness. Additionally, I am a member of the International Association of Work Health Promotion. Furthermore, I am a partial owner of a fitness centre. I have recently expanded my efforts and have joined Sage Wellness Connection to provide health psychology based consultation. This has provided me the opportunity to utilize my previous experiences of supporting families and children, creating support groups, teaching fitness classes and combine it with the wellness piece to support individuals and organizations in this community.

What We Can Do For You


Lifestyle Wellness Coaching

What Is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is a profession that provides tools to help clients live their lives to the fullest by exploring new perspectives, techniques and hidden potential while identifying limiting beliefs that sabotage growth.
How Does Life Coaching Work?

The Life Coaching Format:

  • Complimentary Coaching Consultation

  • 60 to 90 minute first session

  • One 30 to 90 minute phone call per week (session length depends on which coach and which program)

  • Unlimited Email support

  • Occasional brief check-in calls

Lifestyle Wellness Coaching is a designed partnership between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually empowers you, the client. We support you on your journey to find clarity and meaning to life's challenges.


Psychological Health and Safety

The psychological health and safety of the workplace and workforce has emerged as a major issue for Canadian organizations. It is clear that organizations which help their employees stay psychologically healthy are more efficient, effective and enduring. The provision and assurance of a psychologically safe workplace is now recognized as a legal duty in Canada, similar to the duty that exists with respect to ensuring physically safe workplaces.

Although the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety remains voluntary, we assist organizations in the establishment of a best practice threshold for employer practices in the area of psychological health and safety. We help organizations capitalize on their strengths and address current or systemic issues impacting their business. We provide services and resources that are cost-effective, easily accessible and solidly based in evidence. We believe that any organization can become psychologically healthier and safer, resulting in employees who are more productive, engaged and resilient. We work with any organization – large and small, public and private – to advance psychological health & safety.
