The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind. ~Kahlil Gibran
My name is Ivona Zager, and I am the founder and director of Inspiring Solutions Psychotherapy.
Happily serving clients from Brampton offices since 2004; my practice is psychotherapy with interest in hypnotherapy. Together with my associates, we offer a vast array of psychological services, while contributing versatile therapeutic techniques and decades of professional experience.
I practice integrative psychotherapy, which means reaching to treasure troves of many schools for best-suited ideas. I prefer the Solution Focused path of psychotherapy, which takes minimal time on discovering root causes of problems, only as practical for the purpose of moving forward towards achieving one’s goals. My perspective while facilitating someone’s transition into wellness is always holistic, as such is my understanding of human nature.
Clients of all ages are welcome, for individual, couple, and group therapies.
If you have insurance or any other coverage for psychotherapy or psychologist, our services qualify.
Happy to say, can welcome Veterans (VAC) suffering from Operational Stress Injury or any other condition we help with, WITHOUT REFERRAL and with FULL COVERAGE. You can contact us directly; NO WAIT TIME. Health Identification Cards accepted.
Inspiring Solutions Psychotherapy is also licensed to service clients in need of help after a Motor Vehicle Accident and in WSIB cases.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, Licence No. 001695.
I graduated with Masters of Arts Degree in Clinical Psychology in 1986. For the first nine years of my career, I was a faculty and teaching psychology at Wroclaw University in Poland (my Alma Matter is one of the most reputable and oldest Universities in Europe, and the University of Toronto evaluated my Masters’ degree from WU at the same level).
A proud contributor to The Association of Registered Psychotherapists and Mental Health Professionals OACCPP journal ‘Psychologica,' I have been the OACCPP member since 2004.
One of my strong specializations is clinical and wellness hypnotherapy, mostly following the footsteps of the great Milton Erickson, who was always capable of localizing and helping to resolve his clients’ inner blockages and unintentionally created reasons for limitations. He was a genius in understanding mind-body connection and in restoring balance and health.
I am Board Certified Master Hypnotherapist and Instructor, and a passionate seeker on a quest of discovery of the subconscious mind phenomena.
I have learned to work with the subconscious mind pursuing many sources, scientific research, and theory-based, adapting clinical and holistic practitioners’ techniques, for almost two decades now and conducted thousands of hours of hypnotherapy. In 2004 I established Counselling Hypnotherapy Centre clinic and school.
In early 2015, Counselling Hypnotherapy Centre became part of my Inspiring Solutions Psychotherapy.
When advisable and approved by clients, a team of Health Professionals works together to address all aspects of a case. We have skilled specialists passionate about service, and we are always expanding our liaisons.
Privately, I have a great and humble appreciation for all Life on this Planet and enjoy living in harmony. An avid gardener and urban farmer, I raise awareness on animal rights at every opportunity; I am a fitness guru; love open waters long distance swimming (but usually I swim in my gym pool…), all kinds of art and creative expressions, holistic and wellness communities, and charitable engagements. As of family life, it’s on quieter note now, as I am an empty nester and not a grandma yet.
Iwona Zager/ Ivona Zager: About my name: its original Polish spelling is Iwona because in Polish ‘w’ is pronounced ‘v’; so usually in the English-speaking zone I spell my name Ivona. It is reflected in the records of my regulatory College, the CRPO public Registry of Members.
