ABOUT GENEVIEVE STONEBRIDGE
Genevieve Stonebridge has been working in cancer care since 2010, and with InspireHealth as a clinical counsellor since 2015.?She is passionate about supporting
people living with, through or beyond a cancer diagnosis. With compassion, creativity and openness she believes in meeting patients where they are at. From her personal and professional experience, Genevieve knows how important communication skills are while navigating the health care system and in interpersonal relationships too.
First introduced to Inspire Health in 2001, when she herself was diagnosed with cancer as a young adult, Genevieve was strongly influenced by InspireHealth’s patient-centered approach – especially the benefits of personal reflection and self-care gained through counselling, meditation, movement and fun. Now cancer-free for over 15 years, Genevieve is devoted to creating safe and inspiring places for people to explore their cancer experience. This includes holding space for both the suffering and joys of life.
Genevieve lives in Victoria, BC, with her husband and grey tabby cat Gus. She is a qualified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher in training, and weaves mindfulness into everything she does.
