Angela Cara, MA, RCC
Registered Clinical Counsellor
I have 10 years experience as a therapist in private practice providing both short and long-term counselling. My approach is gentle, but gets to the core of things. This work could be very helpful for those who would benefit from a supportive and respectful place to cultivate integration of creative or spiritual emergence. I love being of help to people who are working to ground greater insight in the body and in day-to-day life and gain more fulfillment and clarity in their life’s purpose. My style is relational, attachment-based and body-oriented. We will work with the felt sense of things as much as the story, which allows us to work at subtle levels. Please note: I am open to working with people who have had past or recent psychedelic experiences or are preparing for a journey ahead; however, psychedelic substances are illegal in Canada. The people I work with have sec 56 exemptions, or else will be applying for an exemption through the Special Access Program (which I can help you out with if you are committed to working together).
Are you looking to deepen in your own self-trust? … To feel more at home in your body? … To create deeper connections with yourself, others, and the world? Hi! I'm Angela. I'm a somatic-based therapist and I work in my private practice, Wise Body Counselling, seeing clients at my office in Victoria, BC, or by phone and Zoom. I’m passionate about dreamwork, mindfulness, self-compassion, embodied wisdom, relationships, women’s sexuality & creativity. Therapy has been the container in where I have been able to turn transition into transformation and integrate my own powerful experiences of non-ordinary states, so I know the value of therapy personally and love seeing people grow in their understandings and human capacities. I wrote my thesis on my experience with Mindfulness Meditation, a long-time interest and I’ve seen a body-based, Jungian therapist, a Transpersonal therapist, and my Focusing mentor for a lot of my therapeutic guidance over the last 10 years; these are some of the therapeutic approaches that have highly influenced my way of seeing and being.
