Ellie Bolgar is a registered clinical counsellor who operates a ‘Stress-less More Balanced Group’ for women who do too much at Peace Arch hospital.

Stress reduction for busy women

Therapy group aims to help “Type E” personalities

A therapy group for women who do too much will begin later this month in White Rock.

Facilitator Ellie Bolgar says they are what some have described as “Type E” women, the ones trying to be “everything to everybody.”

Type E women are people “running nowhere in every direction fearing demands and expectations” Bolgar says.

The six-week ‘Stress-less More Balanced Group’ at Sources Community Resource Centres is free (though donations are suggested), thanks to funding from the Peace Arch Hospital and Health Foundation.

In her written description of the program, Bolgar says participants will learn to transform self-criticism and anger with compassion and empathy.

Bolgar, the program manager of the family services program at Sources, has over 15 years experience as a registered clinical counsellor.

The group will meet from Oct. 11 to Nov. 29. Meetings will run from 6-8 p.m.

To register or for more information, contact Jessica at 604-538-2522 or email: counsellingservices@sourcesbc.ca
