Graemme Brown

Graemme Brown (Dip.C / SEP) runs a private counseling practice on Gabriola Island. Associated with The Haven since attending his first experiential workshop there in 1985, he is dedicated to compassionate and gentle inquiry. Drawing on his expertise with the family-systems approach of Virginia Satir, Jungian shadow work and the trauma healing of Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing system, Graemme’s approach is to assist people to re-connect with their innate resilience and aliveness, fostering healthier relationships within the self, with others and with the planet.

As a member of The Haven’s core faculty, Graemme co-leads Come Alive, Living Alive Phase I, II & III, and Couples Alive programmes, as well as other custom workshops offered in China, across Canada and online until it’s safe to travel again.
