Steve Woolf, MS, RCC
Registered Clinical Counsellor
At the center of being is a place of stillness, aliveness and otherness. Turning Towards Essence Counselling exists to draw people towards this deep human well by leveraging the empathic imagination. Poems, stories, wisdom traditions, mindfulness practices and creative engagement are used to empower and capacitate people’s unique gifts in spite of their wounds and the blind spots caused by these wounds.
Steve is trained in a variety of modalities and methods, including psychology, clinical counselling, yoga, and spiritual guidance. He employs meditation, inquiry, poetry, arts, and yoga to guide people towards their essence. Besides his formal degrees, Steve studied imaginal psychology and cultural leadership at the Institute of Imaginal Studies (now Meridian University) and trained in Art and Archetypal Dimensions of Spiritual Guidance, as well as the Alchemy of Transformation with Atum O’Kane.
