Our Board

  • Pat Donihee

    Board Member

    As far back as I can remember a love of learning has been a focal point in my life.  Formal education, workshops, seminars, webinars, self-study….and don’t forget books I continue to love it all.  I am a Licensed Counselling Therapist, a trained and qualified coach, a certified elder and family mediator with extensive experience in a variety of settings with a broad cross section of clients. I commit to combining my extensive professional skills with my warm and caring approach to help my client’s live life as fully as is possible regardless of their starting point. I have a special zeal for supporting people who are seeking to awaken to a richer fuller life through discovering who they really are under layers of social conditioning. My commitment to my own ongoing growth and development means I will always have something new to offer to my clients.
