Megan Prenty (she/her), RP(Q)

My name is Megan, and I am a registered psychotherapist (qualifying). I am passionate about mental health, and enjoy sharing this passion with clients in a safe, empowering, and genuine way. I believe that the client is the best authority of their lived experience and my job is to help them navigate their own path through self discovery and healing.

Approach:

My approach focuses on creating an open, non-judgemental space where people can work through their struggles and develop tools that will help positively shape their experience in the world at large. I hope to create a space that is not just safe, but brave, in that it allows for growth, adaptation, and the unique expression of self.

I use a blend of mindfulness and somatic techniques to connect to the physical body as well as tools to explore an individual’s emotional and congestive landscape. Working with a client-centered focus, I tailor my work around your specific goals and needs.

I provide both virtual and phone services that take a client-centered and trauma-informed approach to individual therapy. I use a variety of evidence-informed modalities including: mindfulness and self compassion, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and internal family systems (parts work), solution focused brief therapy. I also frequently use polyvagal theory to help as a framework for somatic and regulation-based techniques.

Areas of focus:

I work with individuals experiencing a variety of challenges including grief, burnout, anxiety, self-esteem, and confidence. I have seen many who want to learn how to be more gentle with themselves, rather than living in reaction to the people and circumstances around them.

Education & Background:

My career in wellness began in 2007 when I started working as a massage practitioner focusing on stress management. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from Simon Fraser University, with a double major in English and History. In 2011, I completed a 200-hour Hatha teacher training, and in 2017 a 500 hour movement and meditation teacher training. I have over a decade's teaching experience of mindfulness, meditation, and movement practices.

I returned to school and graduated in 2015 with a diploma and a license to practice registered massage therapy with a practical focus in nervous system regulation. I am currently fulfilling the final credits of a Bachelor's of Health Sciences from Thompson Rivers University. In 2023 I completed my Master of Arts in Counselling and Psychology from Yorkville University. I am a qualifying registered psychotherapist in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a member of Canadian Counselling Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).
