Jane Wiley, M.Ed., CHT, R. Psych.
I work with children, adolescents and adults. My practice includes assessment, consultation and therapy services. I am a registered psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists.
For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by how we learn, what confuses us, what we believe, how we relate to others, how we respond to hurts – why we do what we do. Life can throw some terrible punches. Even ordinary life transitions can toss us into instability and uncertainty. I believe that with compassion, curiosity and hope we can move through any challenge to a deeper understanding of who we really are and what is truly important – towards a more open, loving and fulfilling life.
As a psychologist, I am trained to provide a safe and supportive space where my clients can work towards healing. We are not broken – we do not need fixing. But sometimes we do need help to work with old wounds, barriers and patterns that are getting in our way. I am committed to my clients’ well-being and growth. It is an enormous privilege to do this work.
I have a Masters’ degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Alberta and I have completed extensive training in mindfulness and body-centered therapies. I am a certified Hakomi [http://hakomiinstitute.com/] therapist. I have also completed specialized training in play therapy, parenting, attachment, trauma, self-harm and adult self-development. I am experienced with issues related to sexual orientation and identity.
