Filip Smialek RMT, CFST-II

Registered Massage Therapist

thestretchtherapist@gmail.com

I started in the field of health and wellness as a personal trainer. I soon realized how beneficial manual therapy could be for my clients to help them improve their movement, performance, and quality of life. My introduction to manual therapy was becoming a Fascial Stretch Therapist. I began applying the FST system in combination with massage techniques for my clients and saw great results in relieving their tension and improving quality of movement. My fascination with the human body and manipulating it to improve function led me to become an RMT. Currently I am enrolled in medical acupuncture at McMaster University. I apply a holistic approach to wellness and performance. Proper movement, nutrition, and state of mind are necessary to achieve balance. Let me help you achieve your goals.

Gillian Rae Fournier, BFA, CAPT Member
Therapist in Training, Gestalt Institute of Toronto

416.554.1349
gfournier@gestaltmail.ca

I trust in the human ability to heal.

We may not know what it is about ourselves that needs the healing. We might just
know that things aren't quite working.  Humans heal through relationship and it’s a process. A very worthy one. 

My intention in the therapeutic relationship is to meet each individual where they are in their own unique process of living. Present with each other in the ‘here a now’, we will aim to deepen feeling, unfold awareness, explore novel experience and discover choice again. Perhaps we might even get a couple of good laughs in too. I meet the other with great sensitivity and curiosity. Creating a safe container for exploration, I hope to encourage in each individual a more fully felt and supported experience of living. A former dancer and choreographer, I have been training with the Gestalt Institute of Toronto in Relational Psychotherapy for the last 4 years. This experience has been extraordinary, transformative and has led me back to my creative process. I knew I would always work with the body in spontaneous play and process, I just didn’t know it would be through the art of therapy. I believe therapy is one of the best tools in the toolbox to help a fellow human cope in the worst of times, the best of times and every possible life experience in between.

Allison Hillier, MA, CAPT

Life/Small Business Coach, Therapist in Training at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto

 

(647) 360-3489

ahillier@gestaltmail.ca

 

Hitting the same roadblocks in life, relationships, career or business is frustrating. It’s difficult to see that despite your best efforts to move forward, you’re constantly back where you started. While coaching offers a goal-oriented approach to creating a great life, sometimes it’s not enough. If you’re circling back over the same issues, repeating the same relationships, encountering the same professional problems, a new set of goals and a well-organized to-do list aren’t likely to do the trick.

 

Therapy removes the pressure to perform, allowing you to slow down and become aware of yourself in new ways. By making space for all of you, not just the part aiming to succeed, you can regain a sense of wholeness and chart a new path with intention. That’s why I practice coaching as a subset of my work as a therapist in training, not a separate practice.

 

I have a long history riding the emotional rollercoaster of entrepreneurship and am dedicated to creating a healthy and supportive life for myself and others. I’ve started five small businesses in three countries, while earning three post-secondary degrees and raising a child into adulthood, and I’ve lived to talk about it. I am also the author of The Art of Small Business Design: A Guide to Moving from Idea to Livelihood for the Creative, Curious and Cash-Strapped.

Tara Johnson

Reflexologist


dragonwisdom@msn.com 

647-570-1973


I have been practicing reflexology for almost 15 years and am double certified holding certificates from RAC (Reflexology Association of Canada) and OCR (Ontario College of Reflexology). My treatments are enhanced by many skills including those as a Reiki Master, and as a Certified Aromatherapist. In 2003 I graduated as an Aromatherapist having trained under the highly esteemed Danielle Sade with “The Canadian Holistic Therapist Training School”.


Young Living essential oils, flower remedies, and cruelty free cremes and oils complement my treatments.


Reflexology has been used since the time of the Egyptians to help regulate and strengthen the body and mind. The soles of the feet hold a map of reflex points that correspond with the respective organs, glands, bones, etc of the body. Reflexology is particularly effective at helping calm the nervous system by turning on our parasympathetic mode - our bodies rest and repair mode. It also enhances the flexibility, strength, motility, and mobility of our feet and ankles.


To name just a few, reflexology has proven powerfully effective at helping conditions such as PTSD, migraines, constipation, edema, anxiety, insomnia, circulation, asthma, digestion, bloating and more. Whether you are looking to boost your immune system, relax, encourage a healthy pregnancy, calm your mind, relieve foot pain, recover from an injury, or relax back muscles, reflexology is for you.


I have facilitated support groups for mood disorders and continue to manage the online support group on FB “The Conscious Mind”. My training and work has included being a personal fitness trainer, a massage therapist, a wellness consultant, and as an esthetician. I look forward to helping you keep healthy and happy.

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.

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.

416.428.2890

Reconnective Healing is an all-encompassing form of energy healing, recognized and supported by science, that can create balance
and improved health. Demonstrated results range from deep relaxation, improved mobility and range of motion, relief from various
symptoms whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual and restructuring of DNA. Information can be found at www.TheReconnection.com.

A session can be facilitated in person or remotely and can be equally effective for individuals as well as animals and plants.

I was a Human Resources Professional for nearly 20 years and worked with a variety of people and industries and even my own HR Consulting company. I never expected to be in energy healthcare but in searching for a way to help my family I found Reconnective Healing and the experience was so profound and the results so compelling that I am now a Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner. For me, it was a beautiful, awakening, healing experience and for those I connect with the results are heart-warming.

My goal is to help clients achieve balance and optimal health through interaction with this full spectrum healing frequencies. I provide individual sessions in a comfortable professional environment infused with compassion and laughter and tailored to the person with whom I am meeting.

I am committed to abide by the ethical principles promoted by Dr. Eric Pearl by treating clients professionally, compassionately, and with dignity in a safe, clean, and appropriate environment. I also ensure the strictest confidentiality and live by a deep sense of integrity and values.

Perhaps you will experience a physical healing, perhaps a truer sense of self but it will be exactly what you need at that point in time and
at a minimum you can tangibly feel the beauty of this energy and light. "If you’re lucky, your healing will come in the form you anticipated;
if you’re really lucky, your healing will come in a form you haven’t even thought of, one that the universe has in mind specifically for you." Dr Eric Pearl

If this resonates for you, I would be honored to meet you and introduce you to Reconnective Healing.

Her background is in acute medical and surgical nursing, as well as critical care nursing. She graduated from York University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing with Honors, and has been practicing nursing since.

Sheena also has a passion in the beauty industry, where she can help others bring their best face forward when it comes to their day to day appearance. Because of that, she not only certified as an eyelash extension technician, but she is also certified and insured in a permanent makeup technique known as microblading. Microblading is a semi permanent form of tattooing that was first discovered in Asia 20 plus years ago, and has become a very demanding trend today. A clean blade is used to penetrate the epidermal layer of skin, where the pigments used will penetrate, to create a soft, feather like stroke pattern that mimics the look of natural hair shafts, for natural looking eyebrows.


Microblading has become a popular cosmetic treatment option for those who have alopecia on the eyebrows, have been cancer survivors, or want a more defined or fuller looking eyebrows. A non toxic blend of pigments is used that is friendly for almost all skin types. If you tend to have sensitive skin that is allergic to other cosmetic procedures or pigments, a patch test can be done to determine whether or not microblading is a safe option for you.


Sheena will provide a complimentary consultation if you are interested and would like to explore this exciting beauty procedure a little further!

Working in health care has taught her that the overall well being of people not only includes how they are medically treated for illnesses, but also addressing their outward appearances in a manner that makes them feel comfortable in their own skin.

She believes taking care of your body is a two way process: the inside and  outside. She says, “everyone is their own version of beautiful, and it is my goal to help others look at themselves and feel great about how wonderfully and uniquely designed they are. I find so much happiness to help bring out what they already have and live everyday feeling confident, gorgeous, and comfortable!”


Sheena looks forward to meeting all the lovely people that choose her to be a part of their journey!

Dada is an electrical-computer-software engineer with over 20 years of experience. Exceeding in math, physics and biology she was always curious and passionate to fully understand human body how it works and its full body-mind potential. A decade ago, she has suffered from CRVO (eye-stroke) losing her eyesight, forced to quitting her job. Dada was devastated for year, with various side effects including Vertigo. Looking for an answer, and not finding it with conventional medicine, she got introduced to Bowen Therapy. Dedicated to recover, for almost two years she was receiving Bowen and was impressed by its power and amazing results. Being recovered (eyes fully regenerated, body pain and trauma free, feeling rejuvenated and ability to read and learn again…) she was falling in love with holistic approach to human wellbeing and gentle touch. Inspired by her therapist and instructor of Bowen Technic, she decided to learn Bowen and gained her Diploma from Bowen Academy of Australia. Practicing Bowen Technique for past 5 years she is continuing to make changes in people’s life.

Bowen Technique is natural-holistic hands-on dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue (fascia) therapy. (Tom Bowen, Australia, mid of 20th century). Bowen Therapy activates self-healing mechanism within us, shifting from Stress/Trauma state to Relax and Repair, connecting mind and body, balancing body energy and empowering blood and lymphatic circulatory system. Bowen Therapy is helpful with many Functional, Pain related, Structural and Energy disorders.

Diana Pimenta, MSW, RSW
Social Worker, Psychotherapist


Diana is a Registered Social Worker (RSW) specializing in Infant Mental Health. She works with children ages birth-3 years and their parents/primary caregivers in sessions to build attuned and secure attachment relationships.

Building a secure attachment to a caregiver in the first few years of life can support all areas of a child’s development. Infants/toddlers with secure attachments have been shown to have increased self-esteem, self-identity, better confidence, and better overall outcomes in the school-age years.


Diana provides psychotherapy services to families experiencing difficulties with:

·      understanding their infant/toddler’s needs and behaviours

·      feeling emotionally connected or attached to their infant/toddler

·      experiencing joy and pleasure from parenting

·      knowing how to respond to their child’s needs or cues

·      understanding how to support their social and emotional development


Diana works through a strengths-based lens and uses infant-led psychotherapy, infant-parent relationship therapy, and play therapy in sessions. She has trained in Watch, Wait, Wonder, Circle of Security, and Play Therapy. She offers sensitive and attuned listening, and follows clients at their own pace. Diana tailors each session to reflect the child’s age, stage of development, needs, and goals set by the family.

Diana has over 7 years’ experience working in children’s mental health. She completed her Master of Social Work at Wilfrid Laurier University and is a member in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW).

She looks forward to meeting you and your little one.
