dr.avrahamcohen@gmail.com

(604)313-8423

Ph.D. University of British Columbia. Former director full-time MC Counselling Program, City University of Seattle in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Private practice since 1987 specializing in spiritual emergence experience, relationship issues, cultural intersections, the lost and directionless. Experience with spiritual emergency, both personally and with those undergoing such a transitional experience and for whom I have served as a facilitator, support and translator.

My parents, my brother and I were born in Canada. My grandparents came from European Jewish small village shtetl culture. Growing up in a middle-class WASP neighbourhood I reacted internally against my Jewish differentness. In my mid-twenties I encountered Eastern philosophy and practices, and process oriented psychotherapy. They provided me a way of making sense and meaning about life. In places of employment I have been seen as troublesome. Of course, I see myself as radical and an activist. As a self-employed psychotherapist and educator, and as a human being I work to create a sense of community culture in collective development, along with a huge emphasis on the importance of the inner and inter-relational worlds, work with non-ordinary consciousness experience, human potential and creativity as it arises from the depths of the Shadow, the far reaches of human potential, and human inter-connectedness with the ‘other than human.’

Joseph Eliezer, RPC #1801

Vancouver
604-739-3010
www.1111spiritroad.com

 

Joseph practices a unique form of counseling – Intuitive Psychotherapy. This method allows Joseph to use (a) his highly developed intuitive abilities to help his clients identify reasons for their difficulties and (b) his psychotherapy training to process the information with the client to achieve the desired outcome. As Joseph helps his clients clear out debris that often lies just below the surface of consciousness, clients become more in-tune with their own intuition, develop strength to trust their own judgment and, as a consequence, are able to make important changes and decisions with greater confidence and certainty. Among other issues, Joseph helps people with depression, anxiety, past traumatic events, addictions, loss and grieving, relationships, spiritual and existential issues, including spiritual crises. Joseph is available in person, by telephone or via webcam.

 

Emma Louisa Ellison, MCP, RCC

Vancouver & BC

connect@emmaellison.com

 

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and integrative psychotherapist. My practice centres people whose experiences include neurodivergence, developmental/complex trauma, and/or spiritual emergence and emergency.

 

Just as a seed will grow into a plant, and a plant will seek water and grow towards light, there is an intrinsic capacity within all living organisms to heal and to grow, and a natural inclination to move in this direction. My practice is guided by trust in the wisdom of this inner healing intelligence. I integrate mind-body therapies using an approach that is holistic, collaborative, and non-pathologizing. My work is grounded in lived experience and over 15 years of training, education, and direct service in trauma-informed and queer- and gender-affirming settings. I welcome you to reach out, and I look forward to connecting with you.

Offering a Healing Space with Intelligence and Heart

Vancouver BC
778-888-0589 (mobile & text)
Please visit my website to learn about all my offerings: http://fermi.ca/

catalyst@fermi.ca

 

In-person (depending on Covid restrictions) – Zoom sessions available world-wide. [Please note: Outside of BC, my counselling credentials may not apply. If that is the case, I can give you a receipt for coaching rather than counselling.]

Sometimes spiritual emergence can be unsettling or cause a crisis in our lives. Spiritual emergency happens when we awaken too fast and without enough support to make sense of our experiences.

* Old wounds – attachment ruptures, personal or intergenerational trauma – may reemerge for new levels of healing
* Your sense of self may feel different or scary at times – what used to feel familiar may feel odd or different
* As you integrate new states and capacities, relationships with friends and family may shift causing difficulties and also offering new opportunities

I offer counselling and coaching to help you integrate your spiritual emergence experience in rewarding and meaningful ways.
Together we’ll take an inventory of what you’re already doing that’s helping, you’ll learn new skills and practices, get help with healing, integration and reemergence. Our soul has unlimited potential to heal, grow, and transform.

Please feel free to be in touch to see if my offerings might be a good fit for you – up to 1/2 hour free initial consultation. Rates: In Canada CAD$125/55 min. (sliding scale $100-125). Outside of Canada: USD$125/55 min. (sliding scale $100-125)
CREDENTIALS: Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC), Certificate in Conflict Resolution (JIBC), Master of Arts in Applied Behavioral Science, Full Member Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BC Div), Senior Student Diamond Approach path.

Bill Hodges, MTP

www.consciousrelationships.ca

 

I am a practicing psycho-spiritual-body centered therapist with over 25 years of experience working with a diverse spectrum of psychological, energetic, consciousness and spiritual modalities. For the last 6+ years, my focus is the Guardian Perspective Law of One, A Heart Centered/Ascension Embodiment Path as presented by Lisa Renee through the Energetic Synthesis Community.

I offer in person, internet and telephone session work employing this comprehensive, integrated spiritual consciousness perspective. This work addresses issues concerning all four of our body systems; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual to become congruently aligned to the Law of One. Aligning our bodies in this way facilitates the development of your holographic, core manifestation lightbody template thus supporting the embodiment of your higher heart/soul, monadic and avatar/god self identities and the many new energies/frequencies now returning to the Earth.

Spiritual emergent and associated “Dark Night of the Soul” issues noted here on this site are very diverse, challenging and complex but not uncommon to the different stages of the awakening process.

For additional information or an initial complementary consultation to determine your heart resonance as to whether this perspective will be supportive to your current needs, please call!

I’m a transpersonal therapist offering sessions online as well as in France and Belgium. I have immersed myself into the world of altered states of consciousness for a very long time: plant medicine, breathwork, yoga, sound, meditation and energy work are a big part of my life. I see myself as a seeker of truth and I will be honored to help you find your inner resources.

My practice is delicate but powerful, benevolent and intuitive. I work with the hypnotic trance and can help you learn to manage stress, overcome fear, understand a symptom, overcome trauma, facilitate mourning, free yourself from an addiction, (re)discover a state of expansion of consciousness, find your soul purpose, meet your spirit animal, guides or ancestors

I have been through several experiences of spiritual awakenings myself so I know how confusing (or even scary) it can be! My goal is to create a safe space for you to process what may be happening so that it can be for your highest good.

Dr. Chiaku Hanson completed her Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and is certified in Psychoanalysis. She is a Spiritual coach and certified life coach. She focuses on helping people resolve their ego blocks and transcend to higher self, the God self. Dr. Hanson works from a transpersonal/spiritual framework and psychoanalytic framework, focusing on earlier childhood experiences, attachment styles, repeated patterns, and defense mechanisms used to aide in repressing psychological wounds. With eight years of clinical training working with a range of populations, Dr. Hanson focuses on transcendence of the ego, as it affects quality of life and in treating the whole person (Spirit-Mind-Body) as well as helping one discover their true self with the release of the false self and unconscious conflict through reconstruction of harsh ego and re-programming healthy belief systems. Dr. Hanson’s goal in therapy is to bring awareness to the unconscious as it relates to decisions and patterns, address unresolved conflict, and strengthen the ego so that one is able to transcend beyond ego to higher self. Spiritual conflict is her specialty, due to the belief that everyone must travel their own spiritual journey and we are spirits having human experiences.
