Hayley Mangotich

Individual Therapy, Therapist

 

Hayley holds a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Toronto, and an Honors Bachelors degree in Psychology from Western University. She is currently in the process of becoming a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). Prior to her graduate education, Hayley studied and led mindfulness-based meditation and movement practices. She has explored the convergence of mindfulness, somatics, social systems, and mental health through instruction in trauma-sensitive mindfulness practices, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and embodied social justice. 

 

This knowledge and experience informs her approach with clients. Hayley believes that genuine presence and compassion are foundational to building a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship, as well as meaningful relationships with ourselves and others. She is committed to practicing from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework, and believes that therapy can be a starting point for ripples of healing and growth — from our internal world to our close relationships, to our communities. 

 

With authenticity and warmth, Hayley supports clients to process difficult emotions and experiences, develop self-awareness and self-acceptance, challenge limiting narratives, and navigate what it means to show up as their whole selves. Honouring the uniqueness of each person’s journey, she draws flexibly on evidence-based practices to meet clients where they are and support them in moving toward where they want to be.
