Anita Knight. Registered Psychotherapist (Q)
I have always wanted to be a counsellor when I was growing up. I had a knack for listening to people’s stories in a non-judgemental way and worked hard to figure out ways to help those I loved. For a number of years, I lost my footing and found myself on a different path, exploring the sensations and then the numbing effects that various substances provided. After surviving an abusive relationship, I took stock of my life and realized I needed to walk away from this world of consuming and being consumed before it led to my destruction. I set out to heal and change my direction, first by seeking support with therapy and then by connecting with a spiritual side of myself that felt both empowering and humbling at the same time. As I began to gain clarity of how I wanted to live my life, I sought out training in the mental health field and became a Certified Hypnotherapist and a Registered Psychotherapist. I am also an ordained Metaphysical Minister.
As a therapist, I have a spiritual and transformational approach to Psychotherapy. Honour is given to both physical and spiritual beings that simultaneously live within each of us. Through counselling, blocks and shadows are cleared and as we begin to connect with our inner Sacredness we become soul-guided individuals.
I work with individuals who are seeking to better understand themselves, connect with their inner self, and create more meaningful relationships. Many may have experienced depression, anxiety, troubling relationships, negative habits, and confusion about their life. These are all signs guiding you to a more authentic you. Individuals are often searching for a deep connection to spirit and want to know how to walk their own unique path while letting go of judgements and the opinion of others. Often these signs can mean you are experiencing a Dark Night of the Soul. I am here to support you in living your unique Soul's Mission.
My specialty is supporting those who recognize that they are spiritual beings having a physical experience. I encourage you to look at and explore your inner self, to re-connect and build trust in your inner compass, to create a life you are happy living on your own terms. By honouring where you are from moment to moment day to day you will learn how to follow your unique path. I support you in falling in love with yourself again, or maybe for the first time.
If you are searching for more meaning in your life or to understand yourself and your connection to spirit better please reach out. Through connecting with yourself on a deep and spiritual level you will have more patience in the world, know who you are, what your purpose is and be able to understand the world around you better.
