Our aim at Connecte is to bring the science of Psychology to everyone. Why? Because it’s fascinating and oh so helpful! Psychology is the science of how that little machine in our head “the mind” works and how it connects to our body and everything around us. With our solid research backgrounds, keen curiosity about how people work and our experience in multiple domains of psychology including Clinical, Social, Health, Community and Positive Psychology our aim is to cut through the hype that’s out there to bring the best science-based principles to you.

I have heard many clients assume that they procrastinate out of laziness, but as this NY Times article explains, procrastination may be related to our difficulty managing the negative emotions that a task elicits. I appreciated how this article included both psychological approaches like mindfulness and self-compassion, as well as concrete tips, to help overcome procrastination. Don’t put off checking it out!
As a psychologist who sees clients struggling with self-esteem issues, something that often comes up in session is body dissatisfaction. In today’s society, we are bombarded with messages that our bodies need improvement, so it’s no wonder that most people report dissatisfaction and wanting to change their appearance. As a result, I am encouraged (and excited!) when I hear about positive influences in the media working on fostering body positivity in youth (bonus: happening in Montreal!). One of these positive movements is “Bien avec Mon Corps” who recently launched their website. Their mission is to help individuals feel better in their bodies and have greater self-esteem. They are also creating awareness about the importance of body positivity and preventing body dissatisfaction in youth. Check it out!
