"Who looks outside,dreams; who looks inside, awakes." - Carl Jung
Hi. I'm Angela, a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), teacher of yoga and meditation and lover of truth, beauty and authentic joy.
I am experienced in working with individuals and couples facing various difficulties and craving a life with more intimacy, energy and vitality. I draw from a blend of therapeutic modalities in order to honour your unique needs, primarily drawing on Mindfulness-based approaches, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Depth Psychology. I also have a special interest in Body-centered Psychotherapy & Dreamwork.
Over the last 5 years I have been working in traditional counselling jobs both in the system and in private practice, and my own work with a Jungian therapist has been of enormous value in helping me to realize the importance of the relationship between fellow travelers and to see each story as a gift and a blessing. One year ago, I had a vision of a lotus being birthed at my heart. In the Buddhist tradition, the lotus symbolizes purity as it progresses in the water, out of the mud of materialism, into the sun of enlightenment. There is a belief that where divine virtues develop, the lotus blossoms.
This image inspires me to want to work with you to discover, cultivate, and strengthen your inner resources and express your own voice and deeper knowings. I am excited to see you move into a more authentic sense of self as we begin to attend more consistently to your inner life, acknowledging your power and honouring your true longings and desires. I enjoy weaving together my understanding of human biology, psychology and spirituality to approach counselling and healing in a holistic and integrated way.
