Our bodies offer both insight and solutions to altering patterns.


Hello and Welcome.

My name is Diane Brussell and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, and Somatic/Expressive Arts Practitioner, working with individuals willing to experience themselves in new ways and outgrow current limitations. I bring body-centered psychotherapy and a variety of creative modalities that can enhance traditional verbal counselling.

Writing, music, song, dance, movement, yoga and theatre offer a multiplicity of channels for expression, extending and enhancing the possibilities of personal articulation and empowerment. All of these venues provide a profound capability for forging compassionate connections, self-acceptance, renewed hope, laughter and tears and are an important part of what I offer as a practitioner. Tending to personal truth, grief, loss, relationships, intimacy, addictions, anxiety, depression, life-transitions, boredom and fun. Meeting you where you are and discovering together how and where you want to be, moving through this life.

I believe human beings have an endless reservoir of creative potential and I delight in supporting your self-exploration, knowing the joy, satisfaction and resilience that come from creative expression.
