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 new ways 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 children, and possibly adults in their life, to find meaningful shifts in everyday interactions to help augment 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

I offer professional development workshops in psychodrama and sociometry for mental health professionals. Psychodrama is an experiential method that engages the whole person - mind body and spirit. It can be used effectively in combination with a number of modalities with individuals, couples, families and groups. I co-lead a monthly PD group in Ottawa. Participants use their own life experiences to learn the method. Implications for practice are discussed and demonstrated. The 2019 Training Group began on April 14, CCPA Approved 44 CEUs, total eight meetings (Closed). For information or to join the wait list 2020, Email: anantachauhan2014@gmail.com
