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. I came to Vancouver with my horse and my dog in 2016 and haven’t looked back since!
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 Counselor 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.
