Tamara Pearl

Tamara specializes in trauma counselling and psychotherapy. Tamara helps her clients access their own body-based inner wisdom so that they can find answers that are right for them and their life.

Approaching difficulties with curiosity and self-compassion allows us to transform and heal, and to connect to new resources.

Annabelle Giroux

Annabelle Giroux est présentement candidate au doctorat en psychologie à l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. L’authenticité, la compassion et l’ouverture sont pour elle des qualités importantes qui se retrouvent dans sa façon d’intervenir. Son approche est plutôt intégrative même si l’approche existentielle-humaniste et l’approche centrée sur le corps sont celles lui correspondant le mieux. Annabelle a toutefois reçu des formations approfondies en thérapie psychodynamique et en thérapie cognitive-comportementale (TCC) lui permettant d’avoir une variété d’outils thérapeutiques pertinents à sa disposition. Au-delà de son approche théorique, Annabelle priorise une compréhension holistique de l’être humain en s'intéressant aux liens variés existant entre la santé physique et psychologique, les enjeux sociaux (sexisme et racisme systématiques, classisme, appartenir à la diversité sexuelle et/ou de genre, etc.) et les enjeux existentiels (spiritualité, sentiment d’avoir un purpose, confrontation avec la mort, questionnements sur le sens de la vie, etc.). De plus, sachant que chaque personne est unique, elle sait faire preuve d’adaptation et de flexibilité en s’ajustant de manière personnalisée et créative aux besoins des personnes qu’elle accompagne. Ainsi, Annabelle travaille avec une variété de problématiques différentes comme les troubles anxiodépressifs, le trauma complexe, les troubles de la personnalité, les troubles alimentaires, les problématiques existentielles et spirituelles, le deuil et le développement personnel.
