Barbara Symmons, Toronto PsychotherapistEmpowering people to overcome barriers and move forward with confidence to excellence – this is what has motivated me throughout my more than 30 years of experience as a psychotherapist and counselor.

A comprehensive education, together with training and experience, combines with my spiritual base, intuition, sense of humour and insight to create meaningful relationships.

“To love what you do is a gift. To share that gift in helping others gives your life real purpose”
