About

I have worked with women, children and youth and their parents and teachers for over 25 years, taking a culturally sensitive and client centred approach. I believe that healthy balanced relationships with one another and oneself are essential to human happiness, and enhanced self-esteem empowers us to face life's challenges. Together we can discover your strengths and find creative ways for you to lead a more fulfilling life. I use action experiential methods to enliven professional and personal life experiences and facilitate mindful, joyous living for all.
I co-create an environment of safety, care and trust, in which my clients can explore their issues and gain insights and clarity on creative healing ways to move past hurts and traumas. I work collaboratively with my young clients and their families to find meaningful shifts in everyday interactions to help augment the work done during a session.
I bring multicultural life experiences of transitions across countries and decades of research and knowledge base focused on Atypical Development, Difference & Dis/abilities. I welcome people from diverse backgrounds & abilities. My objective is to help create inclusive contexts within which everyone can feel safe and confident to learn, explore, & flourish.

Ananta Chauhan (Baljit Kaur)'s Groups

Psychodrama and Sociometry for Professionals

Psychodrama is a CRPO recognized experiential method that engages the whole person - mind, body & spirit. It can be used effectively in combination with many other modalities with individuals, couples, families and groups. In this PD group in psychodrama and sociometry for mental health professionals, participants use their own life experiences to learn the method. Implications for practice are discussed and demonstrated. In 2022 Fall, I am co-facilitating three workshops, 10 hours each @ the cost of $300, Fri 6pm-8:30pm, Sat 9am-4:30pm; Sept 23-24; Oct 28-29; Nov 18-19. Please contact for information or registration
