Healing and Empowerment
Welcome! My name is Aglaia. I am a Psychotherapist in training, Mindfulness and Yoga Nidra instructor. Since I can remember myself I have been drawn to people and their stories. Art became a passion as an extension of that – an indirect way to communicate that which touches our deepest core, and darkest shadows, especially in times of pain. There is a crack in everything – that’s how the light gets in, sang fellow Canadian, Leonard Cohen. I would say that this is also how the beauty of our light gets out and meets that of others. After studies in history of art and architecture, a career in teaching and as a business owner, the time came for my deeper calling – that of healing and empowerment.
I am a Gestalt Practitioner from the Gestalt Institute of Scandinavia, the only institution in Denmark accredited by the European Psychotherapists Association. I also hold an MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) certification from Brown’s University. Finally, a true believer in the healing power of sleep, I am a Yoga Nidra Instructor. I employ a creative, person-centred approach, with compassion at its core, to help others on their path to living their best life.
I have a special interest in the connection between trauma and chronic pain as well as empowerment during transitions in life.
