Angela Pessinis, IAAP
Angela is a Jungian analyst/psychoanalyst and works with adults from all walks of life and from all over the world. She works with individuals dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, major life transitions, midlife transitions, grief and major losses, challenges in relationships or at work, feeling stuck, struggling with creativity, suffer from a loss of energy and want to discover and embody their potential and regain meaning in their life in general.
Angela helps her clients examine their current situation and areas of being "stuck" and together they explore new ways of relating to oneself and others and eventually learning to relate from a place of Eros rather than power and live a more joyful and fulfilled life.
Angela through the analytic work assists each individual to discover their uniqueness, to work on areas that are less developed in their personality, and deal with the material that surfaces from the unconscious, especially dreams which can be seen as messages from the unconscious. This can not only shed light into the current situation but also point to where one's energy should be directed. Jung believed that each person is a unique individual and comes with his inner healing and analysis aims at connecting with both. In the temenos of the analytic space, Angela listens attentively and with great respect to the whisperings of each client's soul in all its manifestations, i.e., dreams, suffering, voice, drawings, or any form of creative work and encourages the client to listen to, appreciate and be receptive to its advice and wisdom.
Her first two degrees were in English literature and Humanities, Comparative literature, at York University in Toronto. Her extensive studies in literature provided an excellent exposure to the depths and richness of the human psyche and its creative expressions. Following a number of years of work in adult education and interpreting she studied Psychodynamic Therapy at CTP for two years. There followed two semesters at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich and she completed her formal training in analytical psychology at the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts (OAJA).
Angela has a private practice in Montreal offering individual Jungian analysis to adults in person and via Skype, she teaches at OAJA, lectures for the public, and also teaches depth Analytical psychology to a group of psychologists in Greece. Angela is also perfectly fluent in Greek.
Angela is currently a member of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP); The Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts (OAJA); Canadian Association of Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT); and of L'Association des psychoanalystes Jungiens du Quebec (APJQ).
Angela works in both the English and Greek language.
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. Since then he has worked in private practice and offered supervision.
David’s fields of interest include Art, finding one’s creative nature, the individuation process as an embodied and lived reality and the exploration and interpretation of dreams.
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.
“Either we live the life others want from us or we live our life.” – D. P.
David is a member of the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP), the Association of Jungian Psychoanalysts of Quebec (APJQ) and of the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts (OAJA). He is also a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT).

Serge Verville – IAAP
“The individuation process and the dreamwork are central to the work on ourselves and lead to new energy coming from the unconscious. Getting to know who we really are and living accordingly needs courage and endeavour but opens in us to the path toward our true self.”
Serge is a Jungian Analyst with a degree from the CG Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland and is a member of the international association for Analytical Psychology and the association of Jungian Psychoanalyst of Quebec (APJQ). He is a Swiss and a Canadian citizen and resides in Switzerland. He completed his Masters (MA) at the Faculty of Theology and Religious Science from the University of Montreal. He has led many groups in dreams studies and given courses on Jung and Meister Eckhart.
“Our soul is there inside us and we can go inwardly to have glimpses of it, if we want.”
Everything related to the Psyche’s spiritual energy, to the religious function or true mysticism, is of great interest to him. Serge helps people who experience stress, anxiety, panic attacks, problems in relationships, sexuality, lack of meaning, depression and any person who needs support to solve whatever blocks the flow of life. He has helped many people going through grief and some facing death. He has worked with clients with addiction issues and those seeking to integrate entheogenic experiences. For Serge, being totally present, warm and listening with compassion is primary to his approach.
He enjoys traveling, anthropology, the arts, reading, culture, meditation and yoga. He has been interviewed on psychological questions for newspaper, magazines, radio and television.
Serge works with people of many cultures in both the English and French language.
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 also offers Skype and phone sessions. In those sessions we may spend time with any pressing issue of daily life, as well as with dreams, journaling, writing, artwork or spontaneous images from the Unconscious. The work of exploration is carried out in a safe and non-judgmental environment with patience, care, and respect for the process.
By exploring the yet unknown or repressed parts of ourselves we make them conscious - we know ourselves better - and we can liberate some energy that allows us to make different choices, more in tune with who we truly are.
Elisabeth’s focus is to assist someone in their unique Individuation Process. She believes that there is a potential for wholeness in each human being, an urge towards freedom, completeness and self-realization similar to that of a blade of grass, which manages to find its way to the sunlight even through rock and rubble. That is what gives life hope and meaning.
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).
Elisabeth works in both the English and French language.
Caroline Duetz - IAAP
Caroline is a Jungian Analyst and Psychotherapist who has been in private practice in Toronto since 1988. Born in The Netherlands, Caroline started her working life as an elementary teacher, teaching first in New Zealand and later in Toronto. With a life-long interest and curiosity about human nature Caroline has trained in and experienced a wide variety of therapeutic approaches. These include Gestalt Therapy, body work, personal psychotherapy, Jungian analysis, neurobiology, Masters level studies in counselling psychology and Jungian Analyst training.
Caroline considers the psychology of Carl Jung her strongest and most life-changing influence. What especially appeals to her was his ability to be curious without any judgemental attitudes towards his clients. Caroline considers that approach a crucial aspect of how she likes to work with others.
Through her many years of personal therapy and Jungian analysis Caroline has developed a profound admiration and respect for the Unconscious. Carl Jung taught that healing comes from the Unconscious and therefore her focus is to create a safe environment to guide people in a gentle process of discovering what has previously been hidden. This can facilitate a new approach to the challenges of daily life such as relationship dynamics in family and work, understanding the dynamics of internal conflict, struggles with eating and body image, as well as lesbian and gay issues. Caroline brings a focus on assisting her clients gradually to foster a deeper and more compassionate relationship with themselves. Caroline is especially fond of dream analysis, but also uses writing, active imagination, body awareness, the I Ching , guided meditation, creative activities and other modalities to help in this process.
Important in personal work is the influence of childhood experiences in shaping who we are as adults and understanding how these early experiences can imprison us in outdated and false perceptions of ourselves and others. Caroline can help make sense of which of our current struggles are rooted in the past and how the early adaptations we made in order to survive, can still manifest in our current lives as habitual actions or reactions to everyday situations and relationships. Becoming more aware of these dynamics can in time, free us to be more true to the inner Self and live life with more satisfaction and authenticity.
Caroline offers individual therapy as well as supervision. She is a Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario (CRPO), a member of the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP), a member of the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts (OAJA) and a member of the Ontario Society for Registered Psychotherapists (OSRP).
Dr. Michael Daine, Ph. D.
Michael is a Licensed Psychologist specializing in the practice of Jungian analysis. His diverse training and experience in Jungian work began at the C.G. Jung Center of Houston where he served as Assistant Director and Training/Program Coordinator for many years. During that time, he was honored to learn from some of the of seminal international thinkers in the Jungian world, as well as other depth psychologies, art and body therapies.
For Michael dreams are the core of analytic work. Personally, he began attending to his dreams as a young child when his family would share “breakfast and dreams” every morning. He learned quickly that dreams hold a deep, mysterious magic that has the power to change everyday life.
Dr. Daine has trained at the C.G. Jung Institute of Colorado, the C.G. Jung Center of Houston, Boulder Association of Jungian Analysts, and many other training organizations. Michael received a Counseling Psychology doctorate from the University of Houston's APA approved program which included specialized training in psychopathology, family systems, and addictions.

Outside of the academy, Michael has provided and directed clinical services at in-patient substance abuse and psychiatric hospitals, out-patient mental health centers, and private practice. Michael also serves as media consultant and has had his own talk shows on National Public Radio and Community Radio. Dr. Daine is a member of the International Associate of Jungian Studies and the International Association of Neuro-psychoanalysis.
Michael’s practice focuses on providing adults a deeper understanding of the psyche and to attend to the inner world; using it as the guide on their journey. Analytical work is a deeply intimate and vulnerable relationship for both the client and the analyst.
“I try to engage clients in the type of analytical work I would want: Caring, challenging, thoughtful, and enlightening.”
Recently, Michael has begun a new creative adventure and has begun writing fiction from a Jungian perspective; exploring character and plot through the lens of the personal and archetypal unconscious.
