Carmen Everall RTC, CBT, BMT.

I have lived and traveled around the world and studied with teachers in Canada, the USA, Peru, Columbia, Panama, Bali, Egypt, and Mexico. This commitment to continuous learning, personal growth, healing, and teaching is the cornerstone of my practice. I am dedicated to empowering my clients and providing a compassionate, empathetic, and non-judgmental environment where they can flourish. My own experience with trauma led me to my counselling career. I want to offer hope to my clients and let them know that they are not alone.

I have a proven track record of successfully supporting clients to delve into their mental and emotional layers to identify the root causes of their challenges. Using methodical and evidence-based approaches, I assist my clients in developing robust coping skills. I collaborate with my clients to create a customized action plan that may include techniques such as goal setting, breathwork, meditation, Chi Kung, and journaling. Through the examination of feelings, thoughts, and behaviours, we will work toward transformative growth.

With over 20 years of experience in Body-Mind Therapy, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to my practice. As a Member of the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada, I hold certifications as a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC), Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), Body-Mind Therapist (BMT), Brainspotting (Level 1), Chi Kung Practitioner, and Reiki Master. Drawing from a wealh of experience and practice, we will work together to create a treatment plan that supports you to arrive at your goals using a variety of techniques.

I am the innovator behind the P.E.M.S.™ 4 Pillar Therapeutic Wellness System, a comprehensive framework for Physical, Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual wellness. This unique system seamlessly integrates Western Psychology, Eastern Healing Traditions, and Ancient Wisdom Traditions. It serves as a holistic vision of the foundational principles of Body-Mind Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, facilitating self-development and healing. In my practice, I also prioritize Energy Management, recognizing its pivotal role in achieving balanced health. The P.E.M.S.™ 4 Pillar Therapeutic Wellness System is a forward-looking approach that equips individuals with practical applications and methods for daily life. It encompasses proven practices to:

  • Deepen self-knowledge
  • Heal from past traumas, including PTSD
  • Alleviate anxiety, stress, and uncertainties
  • Enhance awareness of your feelings, thoughts, emotions, and beliefs
  • Reframe negative thinking and cultivate a focus on positive thoughts
  • Achieve emotional, mental, and spiritual equilibrium
  • Elevate the quality of your sleep
  • Reduce signs of aging
  • Boost your energy levels
  • Foster improved relationships and help you be more present
  • Open your heart to new possibilities and infuse more joy into your life

In addition, I am one of the original founders and organizers of the first Peace Education Conference at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. I have volunteered my time rebuilding homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and setting up a Crisis Centre in an Indonesian hospital after a terrorist attack.

Whether you are seeking guidance for your work life, home life, romantic relationships, or family dynamics, I offer a distinctive therapeutic style tailored to your holistic needs. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, phobias, self-harm, anger management, or recovering from trauma and abuse. I can guide you on your healing journey toward optimal health and wellness.

“I feel our sessions helped me greatly and I just want to extend my sincere thanks for working with me in these sessions. I will continue to do the work on my own (the exercises you gave me as well as the journaling), but I have, myself, already noticed a tremendous difference in terms of my attitude, change of communication behaviour and willingness to let people in. I have you to thank for this.”


Carmen is a wonderful therapist.  I have grown so much in just six months of sessions with her.  From my first session I knew I was in excellent hands as she skillfully tailored a plan to address my specific needs.  I truly appreciate her holistic approach and that she provides such a comfortable, safe place to explore. I am beyond grateful for her guidance and look forward to continuing on this journey of empowerment with her.
