“Vince creates a safe and compassionate space where honesty and integrity are valued, and my darkest secrets and most painful memories can be shared. He listens compassionately through my tears, anger and rants and responds with care, wisdom, understanding and integrity. He has helped me to begin to understand the complexity of my grief and pain. I highly recommend his expertise and honesty to everyone that needs a sensitive ear and a compassionate, listening heart.” ~ Lydia

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 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

My background includes almost 20 years of experience working as a somatic life coach, as well as experience and training in organization and relationship systems. Since the early 2000’s I’ve also led hundreds of playshops (workshops) that support self-reflection, creative expression, healing, intuition, communication and leadership. Within my counselling I integrate this extensive experience, along with the wisdom and awareness gained from my own healing journey. 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.
