Victoria Pawlowski, M.Ed., R.C.C.
Registered Clinical Counsellor
Hello and welcome.
I offer compassion-focused, mindfulness-based therapy to support people going through the challenges of being human. Pain is part of life, but counselling can help ease, heal and transform suffering from stress, burnout, trauma, grief, anxiety, low self-esteem and depression.
My approach has been informed by my training, my life experience and my passion for health and healing. I started my career as a Registered Dietitian and worked for over 20 years as a Community Nutritionist with different levels of government (Island/Coastal Health Authorities, Toronto Public Health) and industry (Capers/Whole Foods Market in Vancouver). As I developed more interest in integrative, holistic health, I pursued graduate studies in counseling psychology from the University of Toronto and committed to extensive personal and professional training in Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, IBP (integrated body psychotherapy), EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing therapy), ACT (acceptance commitment therapy), Narrative, Mind-Body Nutrition and Eating Psychology.
I would love to talk to you about working together at this time. Please feel free to give me a call or book your session directly online.
