ANNE DRANITSARIS, PH.D.


education


My education has always been eclectic, seeking out educators and educational institutions that were consistent with my beliefs and vision for the advancement of human development. Combining my in-depth knowledge of psychology, personality, physiology, and human development, I am able to offer a very grounded, practical, educational, and insightful way of working with people.

I have studied at mainstream universities such as Ryerson (Business Management), University of Toronto (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Religious Studies) and ADR Institute of Ontario (Alternate Dispute Resolution). I looked for training institutes that would give me the tools to integrate the cognitive, emotional and physical approaches to healing the mind and body. This education included: receiving a degree as a Registered Massage Therapist; graduating from the International School for Spiritual Sciences (Montreal); psychotherapy certification from the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy (D.C.T.P); studies at the Masterson Institute for Disorders of the Self (New York); and a Ph.D. in Therapeutic Counseling from the Open International University for Complementary Medicine (WHO). 

I have also completed postgraduate programs in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Spiritual Self-Schema Development for the treatment of addiction, Brain and Behavior and Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i), and am a long-time follower of the work of Carl Jung. I continue to stay educated and informed about recent advances in neuroplasticity, brain development, mindfulness and social intelligence. More recently I have completed the New Brain Science series with NICABM.
