Jungian IMPROV - On Eros
Mar. 21, 2019 • 6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern
Jungian Analyst David Pressault, IAAP
David is a Jungian analyst with a strong background in the Arts. He developed a relationship to the unconscious through the art form of contemporary dance. He was a professional dancer and choreographer for 20 years and he still creates dances when time permits. In 2005, he retired from the stage as a dancer and began a Masters in dance at UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal). The following year, he began his training in Analytical Psychology at the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts and graduated in February 2012. He accompanies adults struggling with different life issues. His work invites one to share, observe and explore their life story. In this process, unconscious issues that are a source of suffering in the present reality are made conscious. In so doing, new energy can become available. This invites a different life view, better choices and new ways of being in the world which are more in tune with one’s deeper self. He works with dreams, artistic and creative material, along with everyday life situations.
Elisabeth Pomès- IAAP
Elisabeth first realized her love for psychology and psychotherapy when she started working with artists. Starting her career as a singer and later a voice teacher, she came in contact with artists who experienced debilitating stage fright and at times were blocked in their creativity. She started developing Performance Without Fear, a course in which she used her background in Yoga, Qigong, Meditation and Psychotherapy to help artists release tension both physically and psychologically.
At the same time, she discovered the works and psychology of Carl Jung and began her training in Analytical Psychology at the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts. She graduated in 2009.
Elisabeth has a private practice in Toronto. She assists both adults and teenagers struggling with challenges such as anxiety, depression, loss and grief, difficult relationships, loss of meaning and life transitions. She also provides supervision.
Elisabeth is a member of the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP) and the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts (OAJA). She is also a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT). She works in both the English and French language.
