Hilary Fair is a Registered Psychotherapist (qualifying), writer, and art-maker, with a particular interest in working with people navigating anxiety and depression, life transitions, relationship issues, and creative, existential and spiritual concerns. She also has experience working with clients on issues of grief and trauma.
Hilary identifies as a holistic and client-centred therapist, and by this she means a few things:
She considers her clients to be the experts in their own lives;
She works to create a safe space in which clients can feel comfortable getting curious about the habits of mind, relational patterns, and old wounds, as well as the current lifestyle and environmental factors that may be challenging their well-being;
She draws from a variety of therapeutic modalities (mindfulness, self-compassion, CBT, art, and narrative therapy among them), based on the client in front of her. She understands therapeutic journeys to be as unique as the people walking them, and she strives to meet each person where they’re at—to learn together about what personal growth and well-being look like for them.
Hilary brings graduate training in Spiritual Care & Psychotherapy as well as in English, and her background in the Fine Arts to her work, and she views therapy itself as an art, a science, and a sacred exchange (meaning, mostly, it's an honour and a privilege to be part of another person's process). .
Relationship is key: it's about fit, and she’s interested in helping you find a good one (if it turns out that's not her, that's ok!). The heart, mind, body, and spirit are all component parts of health and well-being and deserve our attention. Personal growth is sometimes painful—but worth it—and compassionate accompaniment on the journey is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves.
