Unmasking with the Values Based Integration Process

A Chair Of My Own

So I’ve been using the Advance Mobility stroller for the past few weeks, and while I am grateful for it, there are two issues with the trial chair I’ve been using. The first is obvious – it isn’t mine! The chair I’ve been using is one of myTeam Triumph’s chairs, and  needs to be available for other athletes to use on a regular basis for races and training runs, so we can’t hold onto it. The second is that it lacks the support I would need to spend extended periods of time in it – the trial chair would create problems with my back and neck muscles, and increase my fatigue levels.

So we talked with the folks at myTeam Triumph and discovered that there was another option – a chair of my own that would make it safe and feasible for me to participate in the training runs and races on an on-going basis. However, it turns out that like everything else in our life right now, we can’t do this alone.

The chair will cost $7500 CDN – Will you help us make this dream a reality?

This chair offers me an opportunity to get out and be part of community again.

This chair offers Trevor and I a chance to dream new dreams in the face of all that has changed in our lives.

And who knows where the journey will take us from here?

About the program

In 2017 I was newly self-diagnosed with atypical autism, struggling with burnout, and striking out when it came to therapists who could address the issues I was facing. At the same time, I was building skills around life coaching, shame reduction, and trauma-informed therapy for work. Gradually I realized that what I needed – an embodied, autonomous, agency-driven coaching approach to unmasking – was not something I was going to find “out there”, but something I was going to need to create if I wanted to recover my life. This was the moment the Values Based Integration Process was born.

Having developed the program for myself – and having seen the incredible results it brought in my own life – I began to use it with coaching clients. The results were out of this world!

After conversations with Dr. Devon Price, the technique was featured in his book Unmasking Autism. With it, came interest in the technique and the decision was made to begin training coaches and therapists to help make this toolkit more readily available.
