Karelle Edwards-Perry, LMHCA
I am a former professional 100 meter-hurdler and a 5-time Team Canada member. My journey has been far from linear. A back injury took me off the track for 3 years. Although I made a successful return to the track, I experienced performance anxiety and self-doubt, struggled with low-confidence and developed a fear of reinjuring myself. Because of the “toughen up” culture in sports, no attention was paid to the mental aspect of my recovery. Mental health is an integral component of success and performance. I became a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate and Mental Performance Consultant to normalize taking care of our mental health and to help people overcome mental barriers to their well-being.
As a professional athlete who has experienced both the empowering and oppressive aspects of sports culture, Karelle has a particular interest in helping women find their voice and learn to trust their instincts.
I believe that we can all reach our full potential and experience a more fulfilling life with the right tools and support. I meet my clients where they are on their journey and embrace their pace while helping them develop and strengthen the mental skills they need to optimize their performance and well-being.
