Everyone needs some help along the way
In a world where humans are encouraged to do more and attune less, finding the time, space and direction to feel better and deeper and be with ourselves and others can be a challenge.
No one should walk alone and I'm here to help.
In individual work I use a combination of evidence-based approaches via talk, and somatic therapeutic and coaching practices. Together we centre your experiences, reflections, and hopes and collaborate to care about all the parts of you as you heal and connect deeper with yourself and others.
Who's Galen Hutcheson?
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, Art Therapist, leadership development specialist, certified coach, teacher, workshop facilitator and yoga teacher living in Vancouver, British Columbia.
I have worked with individuals and teams in one-on-one and in group settings in schools, community health organizations, correctional facilities, businesses and counselling centres for more than 20 years. See the FAQ.
In addition to my own individual and clinical consultation practice, I am an Associate Faculty Member for the MEd in School Counselling at City University and an Internship Instructor. See testimonials.
Galen is an integrationist who works at the intersection of psychotherapy, contemplative practice and neuroscience via an eclectic practice.
The way we work together is collaborative and customized, informed by developmental attachment & Internal Family Systems theory, compassion focused and mindfulness practices, and accelerated experiential dynamic processing (AEDP).
If you are a seeker or want some support with specific areas of challenge, I'm good at that, and I'd love to help.

As an uninvited guest and settler and in the ongoing process of reconciliation and active decolonization I recognize with gratitude that I inhabit, work and learn via the land, water and air of the traditional, ancestral, and stolen territory of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. I realize that this acknowledgement is only a small part of cultivating strong relationships with the First Peoples of Canada; but it is a necessary step, and we need to continue the learning process.
