About Heather Macmillan

"Until you stop breathing, there's more right with you than wrong with you." (Jon Kabat-Zinn) This is also my guide and intention as a Registered Counselling Therapist (candidate).My work is to help an individual experience him or herself differently while providing compassion, presence and skill in a safe space. I offer an integrated approach that is based on each client's needs. Understanding attachment style, the effects of trauma and the mind-brain-body connection inform my therapeutic approach. I offer Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) approved by the American Psychological & Psychiatric Associations for treating PTSD. I am a Somatic Experiencing Advanced Practitioner - a body-oriented approach to trauma developed by Dr. Peter Levine. I have worked with clients who have multiple chronic conditions (chronic pain, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities), depression, addictions, anxiety; experienced an overwhelming event (accident/physical assault) as well as chronic trauma (long-term illness/ child/partner abuse). Counselling therapy is an opportunity to experience yourself differently. I welcome hearing from you.
