Julia Allen - Registered Clinical Counsellor 

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) living in the Cowichan Valley offering virtual/remote sessions. I have been a counsellor for over 40 years.

I specialize in psychedelic integration, managing spiritual awakenings and encompassing transformation through transpersonal and archetypal experiences. Working in a variety of mental health capacities, my therapy focuses on depression, anxiety, altered state therapies, psychedelic integration, nature-relatedness, trauma resolution, mindfulness, and spiritual atonement.

I started The River Institute in 2019, as a school for spiritual counselling based on my two published books–  The River Books (2007) and Soul Catching: Discovering sacred connections in our environments (2017). 

In over 40 years of counselling, I have found the single biggest challenge clients is to have enough openness of mind to be willing and able to acknowledge their blocks and unresolved traumas. I find that altered state therapies create a state of entropy that is free from egoic defensiveness that allows a higher aspect of the psyche to emerge.

The other primary challenge I help clients with is a lack of connection-with themselves, with others and with nature. We have developed a dangerously toxic world view in our flat land reductionist societies which heighten a sense of separation, loneliness and meaningless. This world view is bringing us dangerously close to species and environmental suicide. Techniques like Soul Catching, which I share thru my courses and therapy, could bring us growth, atonement and relief from mental health suffering.

If you feel drawn to working together please do not hesitate to contact me. look forward to connecting with you!
