“The journey is not always linear, and you may find yourself from time to time revisiting earlier territory. When you find the right life, when you find the right expression of your gifts, you will receive an unmistakable signal. You will feel excited and alive. Many people have preceded you on this journey, and many more will follow in times to come. Because the old world is falling apart, and the crises that initiate the journey are converging upon us. Soon, many people will follow the paths we have pioneered. Each journey is unique, but all share the same basic dynamics. When you have passed through it, and understood the necessity and rightness of each of its phases, you will be prepared to midwife others through it as well. Everything you have gone through, every bit of the despair has been necessary to forge you into a healer and a guide. The need is great. The time is coming soon.”

…from Mutiny of the Soul by Charles Eisenstein


I am a healer, guide and midwife to the life and soul experiences of others, walking with them, listening, helping them navigate and make sense of these experiences, leading them to an expanded vibration and understanding of the beautiful rhythm of their journey. From this place their peace, purpose and joy can emerge.

My work with clients begins with a conversation. Listening to the pain and suffering so many people experience, to really listen and hear the intent of their sharing is one of the greatest gifts I give the people I walk with. Often, my people connect with their own wisdom.

Those conversations can happen anywhere, e.g. coffee shop, restaurants. My personal favourite is a walk in the closest natural environment. Currently, that is the beauty of High Park in the west end of Toronto. Phone and Skype conversations are also welcome.

My role is that of a trusted confidant, not a therapist. I take time to intentionally build a relationship with those who seek me out, one that is based on respect, reverence, vulnerability and genuine caring.

My intention is to provide a safe, compassionate and sacred space, to honour your journey and to provide you with the best experience possible as you move toward your dream.

Here are just a couple of testimonials:

'Barb has a persuasive communication style that engages clients (individuals and groups) to uncover their authentic calling in life. Barb is willing to go where many others are too timid to venture - a placed called self. Her transparency, humility and joyful personality invite those she is coaching to do the same. Bravo Barb! …K. Eve, Toronto, ON'

'Barbara and I had a consultation many years ago when my career was stale - the result was great. Now Barbara has helped me through another turn - heading towards retirement and making life changes. Her insight is fantastic. She cut right through to my hot buttons and helped me to adjust my path to a more meaningful and rewarding life. Thank you again Barbara! …G. Hayes, Nanaimo, BC'
