New to our team: Jamie Holloway
With pleasure and gratitude, we wish to introduce Jamie Holloway, who joins our team of Kamloops counsellors and works out of Princeton, BC. Jamie put together a little bio here:
I wish to acknowledge that I am an uninvited guest on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded territory of the Syilx Nation.
I am a Princetonite, feeling blessed to live, work, and play on the land of the Similkameen peoples and recognize the Vermillion Forks Metis nation. I identify as a mother, sister, daughter, partner, friend, healer, learner and unlearner. I am a fourth generation Canadian with ancestral connections in Europe primarily England, Ireland, France and Spain.
Jamie Holloway has a Masters in Counselling Psychology (MACP) is a Registered Social worker (RSW), is EMDR trained, a Certified Hypnotherapist(C.Hth.), and has been a Reiki master for over 20 years. Jamie brings all of her training and modalities into her therapeutic interventions offering a holistic wrap around counseling experience.
Jamie was inspired to support people experiencing trauma, grief, loss, and mental health challenges after losing her mom to cancer when she was 18. Jamie felt the effects of this loss, and witnessed members of her family suffer the trauma associated with a sudden loss. This was the motivating factor for Jamie’s traditional and complementary educational endeavors in the field of therapy, healing and wellness.
Jamie has been in private practice since 2007 offering counselling support over video, telephone, and face to face since that time. Jamie works from the theory of supporting and assessing all aspects of the person in order to heal and move forward on the journey of wellness supporting clients within their healing of mind, body and spirit.
Jamie’s work history includes private practice, child and youth mental health, adult mental health, and medical social work. Jamie has a special interest in working within and supporting Indigenous communities. Jamie is currently supporting a pilot project in partnership with Lower Similkameen Community Services Society (LSCSS) partnering local Indigenous elders, healers and mentors and mental health professionals to support Indigenous families in cultural support and connecting them to their medicine while engaging in therapeutic intervention. Jamie’s work experience offers clients wrap around support in navigating systems, holistic healing, and an understanding of the many current and historical challenges that individuals and their families are presented with when addressing their mental health healing journey.
Jamie is regulated and responsible to the BC College of Social Workers (BCCSW) and is a member of the BC Association of Social Workers (BCASW) and the International medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA)
