Ivan Drouin, MA, is a Registered Psychologist and has been practicing psychology for 30 years, first in Montreal where he founded a Community Crisis Centre while also working in private practice helping people with depression and anxiety, and then in Nova Scotia where he moved in 2003.  He started the Crisis Response Service of the Colchester East Hants Health Authority in Truro and acted as Manager of Mental Health & Addiction Services for many years.  During that time, Ivan became interested in the field of mindfulness based intervention for managing stress and treating depression and anxiety.  He trained with Jon Kabat-Zinn and senior teachers of the Centre for Mindfulness of the University of Massachusetts in Worcester.  With a goal of integrating body and mind, Ivan also trained as a yoga instructor.  In 2006, Ivan began offering courses and workshops on mindfulness at different locations including the Colchester East Hants Health Authority, the Tatamagouche Centre, with the Atlantic Contemplative Centre in Halifax, and with Joyful Yoga in Truro.  In 2015, Ivan was delighted to accept a position as Clinical Therapist at the Health & Counselling Centre.
