About Wallace

In my private practice, I work one-to-one, in groups, and online with clients from all over the world, guiding others to un-cover possibilities and paths to life. I am a member of the International Association of Counselling Hypnotherapists, under FACT BC that oversees all counsellors and psychotherapists in British Columbia Canada. When asked, I am also a helper with ceremonial medicine, in gratitude to the Balinese and Cree knowledge keepers that have mentored me, guided me, and protected me as I learned what I can do and what I am still learning to do.

My studies include an Advanced Bachelor’s degree, and a graduate degree, a Post Baccalaureate Graduate Diploma. I also have an Advanced Counselling Skills Diploma. I am a Compassionate Inquiry Practitioner, a 240-hour, year-long, graduate level training in a psychotherapy mental health approach developed by Gabor Mate. I am also a Humanistic Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner as well as a Master Practitioner of NLP. I also draw from over 26 years of professional experience as an adult educator, global coach and trainer, alongside my counselling practice. At present, my primary focus outside my practice is supporting mental health support workers and doing counselling and assessments within Aboriginal Services.

Following both modern therapeutic methods as well as Indigenous modalities, I help others to un-cover what they come to know. During our sessions, as we discover more about you, this information informs me to choose the best approach/method to hold you while you uncover your truth. The focus of the healing process is the restoration of relationships that have become out of balance. As a counsellor, one is a supporter in a shared experience of learning and growing, with assessments usually being completed by the person being helped. I use questions, storytelling, humour, modelling, and proven methods to raise your awareness of your wholeness and interrelationships within life. When called, I use the healing power of hypnosis for connecting within ourselves: spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional. I use a two-eyed approach of both Ericksonian and Indigenous knowledge when using hypnosis.

What focuses me into my work are my first-hand experiences into the power of psychotherapy alongside other modalites such as hypnosis or helping one integrate plant medicine learnings,  and how much more impactful it is than trying to heal ourselves on our own. Two, I have also experienced firsthand  ongoing therapy with integration work and how much more impactful that is as well. Three, I witness the growth that clients are doing as well as the ceilings and confusion they still have after all the learnings we discover together. 

With all the research that confirms this, I am grateful to be witness to the work we are doing together. I welcome working with you.
