The Mission, Values & Symbolism Of Life Dances

Mission Statement

Life Dances Counselling empowers youth, parents and professionals who work with youth to find joy and meaning in adolescence in order to live on purpose and in connection with themselves, family, and the world.

This mission statement is my declaration of my purpose for each moment and intention I put into my service. I believe this same practice can be helpful in each person’s life to keep them aligned with the life and relationships they desire and deserve. 

Living And Loving Values: How We Respond To Life’s Adversity MATTERS

What we believe about ourselves and how we act in the world matters: who we are impacts others and can create or destroy our own happiness. We can find ourselves surprised to find that our life isn’t what we had hoped and if we aren’t clear on where we are going, or who we want to be… well, anything will do. Although we can’t control life, we can control how we respond to life and that makes all the difference in the world. Values help us to determine what uniquely matters to us and they are stepping stones that remind us who we strive to be in the world and what path to take when making decisions. 


“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life,
but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.” – Eckhart Tolle


I Stand For TRUST, PASSION, DEDICATION, COURAGE, And BALANCE

Trust – I trust in a friendly, wise universe and I trust that people have all the resources they need inside of themselves to live a purposeful life. I trust in myself and my path. I have faith that is deep and encompassing that sees me through challenges and celebrates my growth.

Passion – My passion dances inside of me and is experienced through my enthusiasm, my compassion, and my desire to honour and enjoy life – all of it – the celebrations, the losses, the miracles, the struggles, the epiphanies and the wonderings.

Dedication – With my ability to keep my eye on the goal, I am fiercely loyal and committed to the very best for myself and my clients.

Courage – Stepping into my courage takes me to amazing places I could never have imagined. Courage allows me to adventure, to imagine possibilities, to travel to the depth of my soul and share with others what I have found to be true about me.

Balance – Dancing between work and play can be delicate and so rewarding. Here is where I open my heart to each present moment and continue to consider both myself and others. 

Layers Of Meaning And Intentions: Life Dances As A Business Name

Life dances is a metaphor that resonates with my beliefs and values about life and relationships. I believe we all have our own unique, authentic dance and we dance in our relationships. We often learn how to dance through life from our parents, teachers, friends, social influences, community leaders, religious guides. We can sometimes lose our own unique rhythm, or get stuck dancing the same moves over and over, but I believe there is many ways back to creating our dance, to living a purposeful life, full of joy, connection, and movement.
