About

louise-at-uoft

I’ve been in private practice since 1989. Having experience in both mind and body oriented therapies, I have developed an approach that combines counselling with hands-on energy healing (Reiki). I strive to create an accepting environment that encourages a relaxed and open dialog.

I keep abreast of new developments in energy therapy and psychology as well as continue with my own personal growth, striving always to provide the best quality therapy for my clients.

I also teach intuitive training as well as personalized
meditation instruction.

  • Work history

    After graduating from university, I worked in medical research, in particular, cancer research for seven years and then became a technical sales representative for a scientific equipment company. This has given me a good understanding of workplace stresses.
