About Helen

Helen McGillivray has worked as an educator for over 30 years; and, since 2003 through her private practice Mind Over Dyslexia , has specialized in helping adults and children who experience the challenges associated with dyslexia, ADHD and learning disabilities.  Although her work with clients is geared towards mastery of language and important life concepts, the foundation of this work encompasses the idea of focussing attention in the here and now, and calming the body (through the breath) for optimal perception and learning – ideas which are very much in alignment with mindfulness concepts.

 

When first introduced to mindfulness practices Helen could see the value not only for herself but for her clients and the broader community.  Courses and studies through Mindful Schools, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield and The Greater Good Science Centre of Berkeley University of California have nourished Helen’s work over the years and she offers mindfulness training through her practice Mindful Well-Being.

 

She is most excited about mindfulness practices continuing to make their way into our communities - into hospitals, mental health care, the corporate world, athletics, law enforcement and schools.  Aside from offering support to schools and the workplace, Helen is working to bring mindfulness to more vulnerable communities in her area.

I feel my purpose is to help others flourish… help them see the good and grow from there. I’ve had many teachers do this for me. This is something we can all do for one another.
