George Reilly, M.A., Dip. Clin. Psych., has been practicing psychotherapy for 30+ years in the interior of British Columbia, and for the past six years here in the Ottawa Valley. With extensive therapeutic training in the experiential modes of Gestalt Therapy and Bioenergetic Analysis, George has also studied a wide range of therapeutic ideas and practices. He is comfortably at home in the philosophical approaches than underlie both Eastern and Western traditions of healing body, mind, and spirit.
George uses the methods of Bioenergetic Analysis as a way to introduce body awareness, and to develop our natural abilities to connect our minds to our bodies in ways that enrich our everyday lives, and provide a solid basis for taking full responsibility for our healing in all senses of the word.
