THRIVE with us!

Are you ready to go from surviving the day to thriving every day?

Living with post-concussion syndrome?

Living with post-concussion syndrome can impact every area of your life. From the physical symptoms like headaches, fatigue or memory issues to the emotional ones like the feelings of isolation, loneliness and despair, it can be a long and frustrating roller coaster ride of progress.

Learn to Thrive with Post-Concussion Syndrome

Learn to Thrive with Post-Concussion Syndrome is a unique well-being workshop series that helps people who continue to have symptoms at least one year after a mild traumatic brain injury. You will join a group of concussion survivors in a transformational experience that equips you to deal with the many highs and lows of your healing journey.

 

Lina and Arvinder created this interactive workshop that combines their life experiences in helping people with brain injuries and concussions. As someone who sustained a concussion in 2018 and is still experiencing symptoms, Lina understands first-hand the frustration, challenges and isolation that come with the slow recovery of post-concussion syndrome. She led a program to help survivors effectively change their outlook and have more joy in life.

 

Arvinder brings 25 years of knowledge and expertise in working with brain injury survivors from her occupational therapy practice PiOT. PiOT’s experience working with clients, adjusters and lawyers with motor vehicle accidents ensures that this program meets the reporting requirements of medical-legal cases.

The Learn to Thrive with Post-Concussion Syndrome workshop

The Learn to Thrive with Post-Concussion Syndrome workshop is the perfect complement to your existing rehabilitation program. It incorporates education, evidence-based practices and support that have proven, lasting results for many concussion survivors who have completed the program.

 

This isn’t another support group. It’s a community of people who understand your struggles but also share in your experience as you learn practical tools together from day one that will help you thrive once more.

What is Post -Concussion Syndrome?

People with post-concussion syndrome continue to experience concussion symptoms after a 6 month period.

These symptoms persist for months after a traumatic brain injury and can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.
