Feel beautiful every day!

I am Heather Veltman, and I am passionate about a lifestyle of joy and feminine empowerment. I am a psychotherapist and a Doctor of Art Education from Concordia University in Montréal (Québec) in Canada. My specialty is women’s body image.

I am also a mind-body coach trained at the Institute for Integrative Body Psychotherapy in Montréal.

I know that our relationship with our female body is not easy. It is hard to accept our “imperfections”. Free yourself of blockages and negative messages absorbed from our culture. No more ambivalence, shame or self-hate of the body. Change this way of mistreating yourself. Trust me: it is possible to learn to love yourself. When vitality flows in your veins, THERE IS HOPE. All you have to do is say YES: one breath at a time, I will help you!

Living in my body, openly and safely.
Being my authentic self, present, alive and connected.

Being able to say yes and no, that is consent!

Over the years, it has become my mission to help women listen to their bodies and to let their innate feminine sensuality thrive. As a psychotherapist, I invite you to enter within yourself to feel proud of living in your unique body.

Loving yourself, feeling beautiful. Falling in love with your body, your essence : YOU!

Adapted to your adapted to your needs

To improve your well-being

First appointment

Let’s see if we match! During our first meeting, I will conduct an evaluation to create a service tailored to your individual needs.

Body

In the BODYLOVE sphere, I will teach you to live in a state of security to feel good in your skin. You will learn how to better feel and regulate your emotions and reactions using mindful exercises, such as breathing, movement, self-compassion, laughter and boundary games. This lowers anxiety and raises vitality. The body becomes your barometer for well-being and joy.

Heart

In the HEALING LOVE sphere, you will explore everything that prevents well-being, including your triggers, defences and strong emotional reactions. At the same time, you will learn techniques to find your balance, to take care of “sub-personalities” and engage in intimate relationships from your authentic SELF, the part of you that can give consent.

Mind

In the MINDFUL sphere, you will understand the difference between MIND and BRAIN to learn positive neuroplasticity techniques. This is a very relaxing approach to reinforce neural connections to increase positivity and the joy of living. You will also learn to develop your creativity skills to keep dreaming BIG and to enhance your aesthetic sensibility and beauty. It’s an art-making date!

Cultivate a lifestyle of joy

Psychotherapy and Coaching to Improve Self-esteem and Body Image

To become a vibrant and fulfilled woman, you must unlearn the negative messages absorbed from our culture. The antidote is to live a good life: breathe, dance, draw and cultivate a creative lifestyle of self-love that encourages joy every day. Say goodbye to anxiety and say hello to gratitude, confidence and pleasure.

I want you to commit to honoring your body every day. I will teach you to unlock your body’s armour that has developed through years of contraction, pain and protection in order to uncover your fluid, sensuous, beautiful self.

Play, art and creativity are the secrets to unleashing your BEAUTY, your authentic SELF and your inner JOY.

Embodied intelligence

My expertise has developed throughout my life. From the master’s to the doctorate, I have studied girls’ and women’s body image. I studied art history to understand the cultural gaze on women’s bodies. I analyzed female artists’ work and all the expressions of their experience regarding the body through their art. As an artist, I have painted and drawn many bodies, including my own, to understand that beauty is a form of energy…

A person’s deep essence is not their look!

My ongoing training in positive and somatic psychology, neuroscience, meditation, yoga, self-compassion, laughter yoga and even Tantra have led me to develop an integrative and inclusive approach to coaching that is intellectual, educational and experiential. I guide women toward their inner beauty and the joy that is their birthright.

I promise that you too can feel beautiful every day: body, heart and mind. This is the present I want to give to you.

Client feedback

Heather, I can’t thank you enough! When we started seeing each other, I had zero self-confidence. I felt like a loser when comparing myself to my friends who have boyfriends and kids. Dating was a nightmare; I would panic and feel ugly or not good enough. You accepted me as I was. Thanks to your support and your body-mind techniques, I was able to get out of my comfort zone. Week by week, my self-esteem grew. It’s pretty incredible, but today I can say that I feel beautiful and desirable! I never thought I could feel so good and that’s all thanks to you. 🙂 I haven’t found Mr. Right yet, but I am enjoying the guys I meet.
Arianne, film project coordinator
I was lucky to count on Heather during a particularly painful moment in my life. Her easy approach and her warm personality immediately put me at ease. Having already done other more traditional forms of therapy in the past, she surprised me with her body-mind methods, but I really improved during our sessions. The exercises, readings and discoveries in and out of the office resulted in feeling more solid. I learned good bases that I can go back to on bad days so that I can find my inner presence and vitality, with myself and others.
Geneviève, manager
Heather, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the support you gave me over the last two years. I want you to know that you helped me so much. You were there during a very difficult period of my life. . I really appreciated your listening skills, your acceptance, your approach, your kindness, your gentle 'confrontations' that I needed to (finally) get moving. I feel that I have evolved, I feel stronger and more confident. I am really pleased and proud of the recent choices I have made in my life. I even feel happy! Thank you SO MUCH!
Chantal, social worker
I really enjoyed the workshop The Art of Joy. Heather is a caring and dynamic teacher with positive energy. She makes the participants feel cared for. She is playful and knowledgeable of her science. I really liked the exercises to stimulate joy in between sessions. Thanks, Heather, for all these great tools that I use every day and that I share with my clients.

Maybe you would be interested in a workshop on the topic of joy or to consult Heather Veltman to overcome seasonal blues or simply to take care of yourself in a new way! I know Ms. Veltman and I worked with her. She is super likable and knows how to make people feel comfortable and at ease, she fosters a sense of security and belonging!
M., social worker
Hello Ms. Veltman, I consulted you in 2018 and 2019. The last time we saw each other, in April 2019, I announced that I was pregnant! I never took the time to thank you for the work we did together, and all the good it did for me. It helped me out of deep unhappiness. Your method resonated with me, and I now use many of your tools to get out of unpleasant situations. I have deep feelings of respect and affection for you. I know you were only doing your job, but I felt loved and accepted at a time in my life when I did not love myself very much. I would love to send you pictures of my daughter. It is a bit thanks to your therapy that she is here.
Laurence, designer
I couldn’t resist writing to you to tell you how good I feel now and how at peace I am. Thanks to the work we did together. Thank you so much for having contributed to that peace I have wanted for so long.
Nancy P., nurse
Dr. Veltman breaks the myth of the closed-off shrink with just her smile! The sessions helped me refocus so I could make some important decisions.
Jean-Philippe C., specialized educator
Heather, I am writing to thank you again for all your support. Our process together has been very important, I often recall important things you told me. I especially want you to know that I am doing well! Thank you for believing in me. I have so much gratitude for everything that I learned with you and everything you gave me. (And the info about the importance of doing sports was very useful as well!) So there it is! Thank you!
J., artist
