Ms. Amai Luc, RPsych
As a Registered Psychologist and Certified Art Therapist, I bring a unique perspective and approach to therapy. I use experiential, body-focussed, and process-oriented approaches drawing on Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Natural Processing, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This means that while we will talk during your counselling session, the aim is to help you to experience the session.
Education & Experience
During my counselling training (2013) and early career, I worked with traumatized children and their families. It was both difficult as well as rewarding work. These young people had very little control over their environments. They were exposed to domestic violence, had fled war-torn countries, and witnessed events that left them unable to rest, feel safe in their own bodies, and develop normally. Luckily, those children had access to counselling support and have hopefully grown into well-functioning adults. Today, I mainly work with adult populations and I have a special interest in working with adults facing their childhood traumas or other unresolved issues. It's not too late for you to get support if you never had the chance to have early interventions, were not ready, or perhaps never realized how your childhood or adverse events have affected you and contributed to your current experience. I aim to bring the unconscious or subconscious to awareness through examining the somatic (body) cues and thus changing your relationship to that information.
