Counselling

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.

~ From Wild Geese, by Mary Oliver

 

Somatic comes from the root word Soma, which means to experience the body from within.

I am a student practitioner of relational, somatic, trauma-informed, therapeutic counselling. Currently under supervision, I am working towards accreditation in the summer of 2018 as a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC) with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada. Until then, I offer counselling at a reduced rate of $65 for 60 minutes and $95 for 90 minutes. Sessions can be conducted in-person, via Skype or the phone.

My background includes almost 20 years of experience working as a somatic Life Coach. During this time I have also led hundreds of playshops (workshops) that support self-reflection, healing and empowered action. Within my counselling I integrate this extensive experience, along with the wisdom and awareness gained from 20+ years of personal healing. I also believe strongly in the importance of humor and play as aids to healing and living, and am not afraid to express and encourage both in the counselling relationship.
