Jungian Analyst Elisabeth Pomès in Toronto



I am a bilingual (English and French) psychotherapist and Jungian Analyst in private practice in Toronto and the GTA, Canada. Since 1998, I have been counseling and helping people in various issues affecting their well-being. For a number of years, I focused on the demands made on performing artists. I created workshops and classes entitled Performance Without Fear, to help artists who experienced creative blocks, and, at times, debilitating stage fright.

In 2000, my interest in the works of the Swiss psychologist C.G. Jung led me to enter the Analyst Training Program offered in Toronto by the C.G. Jung Foundation. I graduated in January 2009 as a certified Jungian Analyst and became a member of the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts.
