At Allius, we understand that individuals seek our services for various reasons, such as anxiety, life transitions, family of origin issues, trauma, and loss. Our approach emphasizes the use of mindfulness and values-based cognitive and behavioral strategies, drawing from psychotherapies like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindful Self-Compassion, among others. Research increasingly shows that making connections with our internal experiences can lead to long-lasting improvements for individuals facing diverse difficulties. Clients have provided positive feedback, reporting significant benefits when adopting a more accepting and compassionate approach to emotional and interpersonal struggles. Our work at Allius is informed by neuroscience and the concept of “neuroception,” which psychologist Stephen Porges defines as, "the process in which our neural circuits read cues of danger or safety".
