She is currently facilitating seminars and workshops in Creating Conscious Relationships, and women spirituality circles Urban Goddess.

Born to experience her highest unlimited human potential and to make the highest contribution to the world, and to inspire and guide others to do the same, Medea’s unique style has evolved naturally from her own self- transformation and spiritual development, as well as her many years of training and experience. She guides and inspires others from her inner knowing and wisdom, which has been evolving deliberately for the last 30 years. Her passionate, magnetic, powerful, yet gentle and loving presence, make her a very inspiring and powerful coach, facilitator and teacher. She combines a wise, old soul with a contemporary, awakened and youthful spirit. With passion, truth, gentleness and humour, she helps others become the empowered creators of their self and life. Medea has facilitated workshops through The Center For Addiction and Mental Health, The Canadian Training Institute as well as sponsoring them personally.

Medea’s life long quest for knowledge and wisdom, which began at an early age, led her to the study and practice of the various teachings of the world’s spiritual traditions. She has studied Advaita Vedanta, Buddhism and Meditation at The Naropa Institute in Boulder CO., Shamanism, Goddess Spirituality, and Christian Mysticism.

The skills I have learned from Medea have resulted in more success and fulfillment for me. My decisions are guided more and more by my higher self and I find myself more relaxed in challenging situations because I simply reflect on what the truth is for me in the moment. I’m also much more capable at connecting with my true feelings and assessing the situation and responding from a more adult capacity rather than a wounded victimized child state. This is particularly helpful in a boardroom situation where egos run wild.

I have been seeing Medea since this Spring. I came to her as I had gone through a challenge in my life that had brought all my past experiences to light and was left with no tools on how to deal with them. Upon seeing Medea, I started understanding my patterns and how I had been living my life. Medea taught me how to change the patterns and truly empower myself. I have developed a strong and loving relationship with myself and this empowers me, which makes me a better person for myself and others. I now listen to my instincts, which for some reason I had forgotten to. I am now living a full life in which I see love all around and most importantly, I love myself.



Seven months ago, I was broken and overwhelmed with stress. My workaholic lifestyle and being in the public eye was beginning to take its toll on my body, spirit and mind.

I was experiencing symptoms of depression, denial and closing myself off to the world and the people I love. Anxiety and panic attacks were a part of my daily routine. I looked for help using traditional methods of medicine, however the medicines prescribed only numbed the pain and stress. Nothing was solved and the long term options were not ideal. I did not want to feel numb for the rest of my life, I wanted to be me again.

I was referred to Medea by one of my best friends and I figured that at the lowest point in my life, I would try anything. After my very first session, I felt very emotional and vulnerable, yet extremely relieved that I finally found someone that didn’t judge me for my actions or beliefs. Medea not only listens to you with an open heart, but can access the most important information about my life that even I cannot remember. Through her work, she has been able to unlock the doors that even I don’t have the keys for, and the result is truly amazing.

I have been holding back my life because of fear, because of the unresolved issues from my past and with Medea’s help, I can finally see my life changing for the better. Her ability to show you how to transform your life is truly remarkable and I cannot thank her enough. Loving yourself is very hard work, but with Medea’s help and positive outlook on life, I can now say that I am on the way to finding true love for myself, and becoming the strong woman that I have always wanted to be.


Honestly and truly, Medea, I believe everything and anything you share with me is
very impactful, important and useful, because it’s from
you…….anyone that knows you
and has connected to your style of coaching / therapy and your
unwavering abundance of compassion and wisdom will most likely feel the same as me!!
Love, Bruce S.
