Compassionate Inquiry (CI)
* Dr. Gabor Maté developed the Compassionate Inquiry® psychotherapy approach, which reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.
Using the Compassionate Inquiry system, both the individual and therapist unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal.
Through the therapist’s use of the Compassionate Inquiry approach, the client can recognize the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them.
“The purpose of the Compassionate Inquiry is to drill down to the core stories people tell themselves – to get them to see what story they are telling themselves unconsciously; what those beliefs are, where they came from; and guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories, or letting go of the hold those stories have on them …
That’s what Compassionate Inquiry is.”
~ Dr. Gabor Maté

As a certified CI Mentor, my aim is to provide the support and guidance that you are looking for to feel confident as a Compassionate Inquiry (CI) practitioner.
In our mentoring sessions, I will integrate Compassionate Inquiry, IFS (Internal Family Systems), and mindfulness practices. I work from a multicultural compassionate lens which gives me the opportunity to explore with curiosity the presence of intersectionality in your clients’ lives as well as its influences.

CI Circles are support groups (online and in person) with the intention to start a self-inquiry process. During 10 weeks (2 hours weekly) participants will be invited to become aware of their behaviours patterns, beliefs, and past traumas. CI Circles create a brave space where participants can experience their true self in a safe container.
As a CI Circles leader, I offer the support group online and in person.
