For over a decade, Gluckstein Lawyers have organized and sponsored an annual Compassion Fatigue Conference. We were proud to have Dr. Parmjit Singh as one of our keynote speakers at our signature event. Among our guests were parents and caregivers, physicians, therapists, nurses, social workers, family and community resource specialists. Here were some of the feedback that we received following Dr. Singh’s presentation.
“Validated my awareness for self-care and compassion”
“Loved the balance of science and compassion and empathy”
“A compassionate speaker who made my heart more aware than my brain!”
We would not hesitate to have him involved again at future Compassion Fatigue events.

Mindfulness based meditation is receiving increasing attention as an adjunct treatment for anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I have recommended Dr. Singh’s introduction to mindfulness practice course to several of my clients who have attended classes in Hamilton and Brantford. The reviews were great!
Thanks for offering “accessible” meditation for people like my clients, the benefits are lasting!

The 6 week Intro to Mindfulness workshop taken 2 years ago has changed my life. When life gets busy or stressful, I always know I have an antidote in mindfulness meditation to reset the balance. Truly a gift that everyone should give to themselves.

As an employer that cares deeply about our team and their wellbeing, we are constantly thinking about what we can do to advance the employee experience. We have focused on physical health programs in the past, but the more and more time I spent with team members the more I realized that as human beings each and every one is dealing with the challenges of taming the mind. And it rears its ugly head at work, at home, and in every aspect of life. I wanted to do something for the team that could fundamentally give them a new lease on life. That’s where the Mantralogix mindfulness program came into being. After my own personal experience with mindfulness, and specifically with Parmjit’s guidance, I wanted everyone I worked with to have the opportunity of this gift. The full impact is yet to be seen, but already team members are reporting feeling calmer, breathing better, and starting to see that the beauty of life is a perspective that comes from within them. This program is an opportunity to walk the talk when it comes to showing people that you genuinely care for them.

We at Locke Psychotherapy have encouraged a number of our clients to attend Dr. Singh’s mindfulness program. What’s unique about his program is it’s accessibility- the program is available in the evening and is six sessions in length. Because the group size is limited and participants enjoy a healthy snack together, we feel this fosters a sense of community and gives group members the opportunity to support each other in their mindfulness practice. Our clients have reported to us that they have found the program to be very helpful in lowering their anxiety and distress. We ourselves continue to refer clients to Dr. Singh’s mindfulness program.

Dr. Singh has facilitated learning sessions in our yoga training programs in mind-body-medicine-based therapies and the neuroscience of meditation since 2013. He is knowledgeable and confidently engages the learner in a respectful manner. His pragmatism and teaching style inspires the practice of mindfulness and the sharing knowledge with authenticity.

The McMaster Halton Family Medicine residents had the absolute pleasure of hosting Parmjit for an introductory session to mindfulness and yoga. Special emphasis was placed on the use of mindfulness therapy in clinical scenarios. He was very well versed in current literature on mindfulness therapy and seamlessly integrated this into a very interactive session. The session was in the middle of the forest at a local park and was a truly memorable experience. All the residents had very positive feedback and we look forward to having more session with Parmjit in the future.I look forward to using him as a resource and session leader in the future.
