Louise Wall

My passion is for supporting people in difficult times, honouring how they chose to navigate their journey, despite physical, psychiatric, emotional & social limitations.

After decades of clinical practice, I have a deep respect for the diversity and dignity of the human spirit, in joy or in crisis; in stability and in transition. I believe it is our birthright to be supported to come into balance in our physical, emotional and spiritual lives. 

Psychotherapy became my calling after I had worked with people as an Occupational Therapist (OT) for almost 3 decades.  My experience includes working in physical medicine & psychiatric settings in renowned teaching hospitals such as Sunnybrook and Toronto General & I ran a successful private practice with clients who had experienced physical and emotional trauma.

My experience in Toronto, London (England) and Scotland includes working in psychiatry (in & out patients) and neurology; with adolescents; geriatrics; multi-organ transplantation; palliative care; addictions; chronic pain; attachment trauma. 

I am a 5th-year psychotherapist in training with the Gestalt Institute of Toronto (the 1st school to receive full CRPO accreditation). I am an EMDR practitioner and am studying Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing (Level B2 completed), as well as taking the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland’s 3 one week modules of Group Intervention Training.
 
I integrate cutting edge neuroscience-based treatments (e.g. EMDR an extensively researched & proven treatment for trauma) with traditional healing methods, after studying Contemporary Shamanism for 4 years with ICSS here in Toronto, as well as in Arizona. I practice meditation and have completed 10 day silent Vipassana retreats, meditating for over ten hours per day and use MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) into my practice. 

I am a mother, an artist and a lover of animals and nature.

I am honoured to be able to offer my clients warm, non judgemental support in a safe, beautifully comfortable therapy room and my commitment is to co-create a space of grounded, compassion with you, so you feel safe exploring ANY issues.

B.A. Psychology, M.Ed. Counselling Psychology, Ed.D. Counselling Psychology (UofT)

I am an experienced registered Psychotherapist who has been specializing in an evidence-based integrated psychotherapy practice for over 24 years. I deliver my services, both online and in office, with care and compassion and in a well-informed manner, intuitively working with clients to address areas of their life that require attention. I offer individual therapy and psycho-educational workshops where I strive to create a safe and accepting environment for my clients to explore life issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, self-esteem, chronic stress and relationship challenges.

The primary psychotherapeutic approaches that I am trained in, and integrate into my practise, are the following:

*Emotion Focussed Therapy (EFT)

*Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

*Trauma Therapy

*Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

*Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

*Career Counselling: to help people design their career path, in an informed way, as they embark on their journey to living their best life.

The quote that best describes my approach to mental health and psychological wellbeing is “the good life is a process, not a destination” by Carl Rogers.

The process of living a good life, maintaining positive mental health and wellbeing, is to explore your emotional struggle, not avoid it, learning strategies for coping that work for you, applying them in your life to move closer, and closer, to living your best life. It is hard work, really hard work; however, shifting to better ways of being in your life, is a very worthwhile continuous endeavour. Taking care of your brain is the same as taking care of your body, it gets easier with time, self-compassion, patience and practice.

I cherish the opportunity to work with you on your personal journey!
