Carol Garfinkle

Carol GarfinkleI am passionate about my work as a clinical psychologist and practice in Canton, MA. This passion has driven me to continue training over the past 25 plus years so I can have all the tools possible to help others on an incredible journey which I am privileged to witness. I believe that therapy is for those who wish to embark on the courageous path of creating meaningful changes in their life. The good news is that people already have everything inside them that they need to get to know themselves, solve their issues and be happy. I see it as my job to create a safe, non-judgmental place where clients receive support to learn how to access that happiness. I also see myself as a guide to help people find the answers that are right for them so they can live the life they design.

Reuben Lowe – Mindful Creator for Good

Hi, I’m Reuben.

reubenWhen I was 13, I got the worst report in my school for bad behaviour. I had problems with my attention and little interest in much else. This isn’t what you’d expect from someone who is into mindfulness, is it? It wasn’t until I got well into my 20s that I started to find an interest. Fast forward a few years and I’m now working part time in mental health, specializing in addictions, at a health clinic in Melbourne, Australia. I’m the founder of Mindful Creation, a social enterprise that develops and presents resources on the human mind and behaviour for self-growth and meaningful connection. I’m also the president of a charity called ACT on it. We’re currently developing a free psychotherapy smartphone app that is accessible for young people, yet suitable for all. My vision is to inspire and empower one million people towards lasting patterns of mindful change. What a difference that will make to the world! And the ripple effect from this, who knows?

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I’d love to hear from you should you wish to connect at
