I believe that we already know all we need to feel whole and well. Yet, sometimes this knowledge is hidden beneath doubt, insecurities, fear, and inner or outer pressure and pain. Trained in the humanistic and transpersonal tradition, I work with clients to help them find their way to themselves. I strive to provide a safe and secure environment in which my clients can integrate their life experiences, emotions, and personal worldview. In the process they can re-connect to their own inner knowing and create a sense of belonging
I have been working as a teacher, counsellor, and spiritual psychotherapist in private practice in Canada since the turn of the century. I came to this work with an extensive background in both working with people and in business. In the late 1980s I began studies in human based spirituality and spiritual research (anthroposophy) in Sussex, England. These studies form the foundation of my work and continue to inspire me. Subsequently I went on to study Spiritual Psychotherapy at the Transformational Arts College in Toronto.
My focus in Soul-Spirit Integration as well as human based and human related spirituality means that I choose working modalities according to the needs of my clients. Methods include more traditional components such as...
... Talk Therapy
... CBT aspects
... Family Systems
as well as more unusual modalities such as...
... inner child work
... guided imagery
… biographical counselling
... dream work
... chakra work
... energy work
... prayer and meditation
... drawing and colour work
... gestalt oriented pieces
... body psychotherapy
... voice dialoguing
All these tools serve the same end: to help my clients gain deeper mastery of their own inborn power and wisdom. By integrating these different aspects of their lives and beginning to trust their own knowledge of Self, my clients once again create balance and harmony in their own lives.
Recognizing the importance of relationships in our lives and growth processes, I offer a variety of possibilities to grow and reach for that highest level of “human-beingness”
* Individual Psychotherapy for adults of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences.
* Group Therapy for adults
* Personal Growth and Development courses and workshops for adult
My approach in all my endeavours is personal, non-denominational, non-judgmental, non-prescriptive, and deeply honouring of the individual I am working with.
