What is MindFit?

MindFit is a one-of-a-kind psychology clinic – or what we prefer to call a “gym” – with expert coaches, programs, workouts and exercises to getting and staying emotional shape.

Just like a physical gym welcomes people of all shapes, sizes, ages, and physical health levels, with a common goal of getting/staying physically healthy, MindFit is designed to be accessible and inviting to anyone wanting to improve their mental fitness.

MindFit was born out of the idea that with the right “coach” (psychologist), training program, workouts, and exercises, we can get/stay in good mental and emotional shape.

I have to say - that she is the most AMAZING psychologist ever!!!!!!! She really helped my son overcome his OCD. Before we saw we saw THREE (!!!!!!!!!) psychologists that were of no help. They just talked and talked… I feel our family has its life back. I am so grateful.

She is knowledgeable and kind. I first brought my son to see Dr. Edwards in Oct. 2018. She did a comprehensive screen then wrote a detailed report regarding my son's situation. My son got trained by her and got better. Later we had to go to hospital as my benefit for the year was gone. We presented Dr. Edwards’ report to a couple of Psychologists and all said that the report was one of the best reports they had ever seen. My son's school used it for IEP program, and psychologist in hospital use it for initial training. We haven't seen Dr. Edwards for a long time since then. But I would say she is an excellent doctor.

Kind, compassionate, helpful. My child really liked her and got better.

Dr. Edwards exhibits a very caring and gentle manner, while, at the same time, provides great insights into the motivations which underlie one’s behavior. Her sessions are both interesting and challenging. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional in her approach and makes you feel very comfortable right away. Very compassionate, patient, understanding, and is open to working with other providers to create a well-balanced, comprehensive approach to treatment. Highly recommend.

I LOVE Dr. Edwards who helped my son overcome his OCD so well. She is so organized and passionate and loves to help. She was able to let the psychiatrists know how to adjust the medication so the two worked really well together and one was not enough. It was the combined work that saved his life. We went to another psychologist who blabbed and blabbed but didn’t help. Dr. Edwards and the psychiatrist were amazing together. Bless her and her family for all the help - she returned our family to normal.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Edwards. As an adult with tics, she tailored the therapy to my needs, and in just a few sessions I began to see significant improvements in my tics. I never imagined I could have such an improved quality of life through CBIT, but with Dr. Edwards help, I rarely tic anymore. I am so grateful for her help. She is clearly an expert in this field and I would highly recommend her services.

Dr. Edwards tailored her thorough, thoughtful, and effective program to suit my personal needs and preferences. She was attentive and professional during every correspondence with me, as well as fluent in various forms of technology. In these times of uncertainty, stress, and social distancing, Dr Edwards still managed to communicate information and strategies for my Body Focused Repetitive Behaviour (BFRB) disorder through a computer screen. I would highly recommend her services.

In 2019 and more recently during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Edwards worked with my son and provided countless valuable tools and techniques to help him regulate his emotions and succeed in school and social settings with ADHD. We saw Dr. Edwards in person in 2019 and virtually more recently. She was equally effective in both situations. I truly believe that she has provided my son with the foundation to be successful living with ADHD. I would highly recommend Dr. Edwards.

Dr. Edwards worked with my teenage son to teach him how to manage his tics and reduce their frequency and severity. She was incredibly helpful and caring and went out of her way to accommodate us. She approaches therapy with a structured program and a plan of action and actually achieves results. This was refreshing after years of 'talk therapy' with other therapists where we saw no visible changes. With Dr. Edwards and her CBIT program my son was able to eliminate and/or reduce some very bothersome tics. Our family is very grateful that our son was able to benefit from Dr. Edward's considerable expertise and kindness. I would highly recommend Dr. Edwards for anyone seeking help with their tics.
