Camillia Manchur MCP-AT, CCC
I am originally a prairie girl from Edmonton Alberta. After exploring the world of blacksmithing and farrier work I realized I was being called towards a different path. I wanted to help others heal their conscious and unconscious wounds and to find meaning in what can often feel like a meaningless world.
Dream exploration and connection are important elements of my therapeutic practice, both with clients and with myself. I discovered the power of dream exploration through my own experience in Jungian analysis back in Edmonton. I knew that dream exploration and depth work was important from my own experience, and I wanted to find a way to make that journey more accessible.
When I entered into the Masters of Counselling Psychology-Art Therapy program at
Adler University, I discovered how art can help facilitate healing, growth, and self exploration. Art, in all its forms, allows the internal to become external. Through verbal discussion, dream exploration, and art-making I was able to help clients connect to themselves, to others, and to their world in a way that was empowering and accessible.
I am a Certified Psychotherapist and Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, and hold a professional membership with the British Columbia Art Therapy Association.
I believe it is my calling to respectfully hold the stories of clients and to help them connect with themselves on a deeper and more creative level in order to live a more meaningful and joyful life.
