Eric Morrissette

As a non-directive practitioner, I honour your autonomy and deep inner resources for healing. I see my role as travel companion, following you into unchartered territories. I’m here to help you find your path and bring into awareness unnoticed elements in the landscape of your journey. My goal is to support you reconnecting to your own wisdom and resilience.

My specialization in psychoanalytical therapy means that I believe the Unconscious is very important and that transformation comes through awareness of how past experiences have shaped us and dictate our trajectories. For me, healing comes from striving towards wholeness, bringing into light and connecting to parts of ourselves that have been left in shadow. I am here to support you in rewriting your story from a place of deeper insight, acceptance and compassion.

I believe psychedelics have the capacity to manifest deeper layers of the Unconscious that are otherwise not readily accessible. As medicine guiding us back to our own wisdom, they can connect us to our authentic self and to the greater whole. Experiences of altered states of consciousness can be magnificent but also challenging. Whatever comes up, my calm and grounding presence will help you in your quest for healing, meaning, and creativity.

I am a registered psychologist with the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec since 2010. Specializing in the psychoanalytical/psychodynamic approach, I have 15 years of experience working in a psychiatric setting, offering individual and art mediated group psychotherapy.

En tant que praticien non directif, j'honore votre autonomie et vos ressources intérieures pour la guérison. Je vois mon rôle comme celui d'un compagnon de voyage, qui vous suit dans des territoires inexplorés. Je suis là pour vous aider à trouver votre propre chemin et à prendre conscience d'éléments inaperçus dans le paysage de votre parcours. Mon but est de vous aider à vous reconnecter à votre propre sagesse et à votre résilience.

Ma spécialisation en thérapie psychanalytique signifie que je crois que l'inconscient est très important et que la transformation passe par la prise de conscience de la façon dont nos expériences passées nous ont façonnés et dictent nos trajectoires. Pour moi, la guérison passe par la recherche de la complétude, la mise en lumière et la connexion avec des parties de nous-mêmes qui ont été laissées dans l'ombre. Je suis là pour vous aider à réécrire votre histoire dans la lucidité, l'acceptation et la compassion.

Je crois que les psychédéliques ont la capacité de révéler des couches plus profondes de l'inconscient qui ne sont pas facilement accessibles autrement. En tant que médecine nous guidant vers notre propre sagesse, ils peuvent nous mettre en contact avec notre soi authentique et avec le plus grand tout. Les expériences d'états altérés de conscience peuvent être magnifiques mais aussi éprouvantes. Peu importe ce qui émerge, ma présence calme et ancrée saura vous aider dans votre quête de guérison, de sens et de créativité.

Je suis psychologue inscrit à l'Ordre des Psychologues du Québec depuis 2010. Spécialisé dans l'approche psychanalytique/psychodynamique, j'ai 15 ans d'expérience en milieu psychiatrique, où j'offre des psychothérapies individuelles et de groupe à médiation artistique.

Jeffrey Hoy

I am a therapist who wants to help you, in the way that works for you, and at the pace that works for you. I seek to create a safe, calm, and open place for you to explore what is really going on. I have lived a richly experienced life - and I know first hand what it's like to be in a difficult place. I believe that my broad life experience - with both positive and many negative experiences - gives me an exceptional ability to understand, empathize with, and inspire the clients I work with. My training enables me to help clients explore uncomfortable underlying emotions, thoughts, and memories that keep them from living the life they want.

Hunter Elyse

Through my own journey healing from C-PTSD, I learned first-hand the vital importance of working with the body. Therefore, my approach to counselling is a holistic one - integrating mind, body, and spirit. When we experience something that overwhelms our nervous system's ability to cope, a common protective response is to live in our head and become disconnected from our body and our soul. I support you in reconnecting to the parts of yourself that you may have abandoned or left behind somewhere along the way, so that you are able to experience ALL of who you are.

I can support you in increasing your awareness of your parts, patterns, and capacities so that you have a clearer understanding of your inner landscape and feel like you have more control over yourself and your life. I am a certified breathwork facilitator, and have completed up to Intermediate level III in my Somatic Experiencing (SE) professional training.
