Allison Cordner M.A, RTC, TRA, Agency Owner.
I am a registered therapeutic counsellor (RTC), a 2019 graduate of a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University and a graduate of Clearmind International's Practitioners Training Program in transpersonal counselling. I am a 3rd-year student at the Somatic Experiencing Institute in my final Advanced level (expected completion 2023).
Through a deep understanding of the human condition, and our universal & innate desire for connection and safety, I aim to transform the lives of trauma-affected individuals, couples and families to re-ignite intimacy, a sense of safety and help them access a sense of vitality. Over my career, I have worked in:
✔ Tele-psychotherapy & traditional in-person psychotherapy
✔ Experiential Process, Somatic interventions & Gestalt Therapy, Family Systems Work
✔ Individual, couple and group therapy
✔ Support group facilitation
There is never a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to transpersonal therapy. Passionate about preserving and/or restoring harmony and equilibrium (self-efficacy), I help bring awareness to behavioural & emotional incongruencies impacting relationships. Building trust & a sense of safety in connection using genuine warmth and encouragement, somatic & experiential techniques, I facilitate the client's journey towards healing & self-awareness.
I bring a lot of sensitivity, acceptance, and interest in clients who struggle with childhood trauma, rape, rage, grief, divorce, autism spectrum, depression & anxiety as well as intimacy struggles. Some of my counselling areas of knowledge span:
► Transpersonal Psychology
► Somatic Experiencing Therapy for Trauma Advanced 1 of 2 (expected SEP Completion 2023)
► Process Experiential & Gestalt Therapy
► AEDP Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (Level 1) Level 2 in Progress
► Family Systems Theory - Systemic Trauma- Intergenerational Trauma
► Complex Trauma Certification CCPT/CCTP with Janina Fisher, Phd (in Progress)
► Clinical Counselling Internship with FSGV's Trauma Unit(Family Services of Greater Vancouver) September 2021- April 2022
I can be available for online sessions using a clinic application called Jane Clinics. I work with individuals, couples and groups.
