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.
Knowledge = Power. We are here to help guide you in your search for appropriate resources, for yourself, your loved ones, your clients, your patients, and your students. We try to filter out the best and most credible resources, and have included everything from practical information, to local services, to easy-to-use mobile apps and inspiring videos! So click on the links below and get connected!
Among the team at Connecte we are always sharing our favourite or latest finds that relate to psychology whether it be articles, Ted Talks, videos, podcasts, websites, apps… We are so passionate about this practice and it so much a part of our culture here at the office that we thought maybe you’d like to be part of it too! So, once a month we will update our “picks” for you to explore what we think is great out there in psychology. Don’t forget to refresh once a month!

We hear a lot about self-care these days, but what does it really mean and how do we actually practice self-care? Psychologist Suzy Reading, PhD has written an awesome book called The Self-Care Revolution: smart habits and simple practices to allow you to flourish.
Suzy uses a storytelling approach and shares both her personal experience and professional expertise making this not only an informative and helpful book but also a very enjoyable read. You’ll discover what Suzy calls her “vitality wheel” which includes eight areas in our lives in which we can incorporate ways boost our health, happiness and general well-being. I enjoyed it immensely myself and have found the strategies very helpful for my clients (not to mention for myself- it also makes a great gift idea!). I hope you treat yourself to checking this gem out, it won’t disappoint!
