I am an Expressive Arts Educator and Consultant, a certified Hakomi Counselor and Teacher, a Trainer and Senior Facilitator with The Painting Experience, and a Bereavement Counsellor with Comox Valley Hospice Society. Yes, all at the same time. I have a private practice and divide my time between these organizations. My passion is helping people explore and discover their own inner landscape by tapping the wisdom of the unconscious mind through art, movement, writing and all forms of self-inquiry. It enriches my life deeply to assist people in discovering this inner connection to themselves and a deeper universal wisdom.  Annie Rousseau

Annie lives in Courtenay, B.C., Canada, and is graduate of Expressive Arts Florida Institute Certificate Training Program in Expressive Arts

Annie's guidance has been invaluable to me. She has helped me appreciate the power of the creative process and what can be learned if I listen to a wise inner part of myself. When I am faced with self-doubt she helps me stay committed to myself and to realizing my full potential.  Emily Hearn
