Alyson Schafer

Alyson Schafer, B.Sc., M.A. Counselling, OACCPP, AAMFT

Alyson has been working with families for over 15 years.  She is one of Canada’s leading parenting experts.  She is the resident parenting expert for Parentdish.ca, The Marilyn Denis Show and CTV News Channel as well as sitting on the Health Advisory Board of Chatelaine Magazine.  Alyson is a international speaker, has given two TEDx talks and has three best selling parenting books with Harper Collins.

All of Alyson’s work is based on the work of Alfred Adler.  In fact, Alyson is a third generation Adlerian.  Her father and grandmother founded several of the Adlerian institutions that remain active in Ontario today.  She helped open two Adlerian nursery schools in North Toronto, as well as training teachers at the prestigious Institute of Child Studies, a lab school associate with the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education.

Adlerian counselling has some unique qualities that clients may not find elsewhere.  Expect to work, expect to laugh, expect homework and suggested readings. This is a therapy of experiential activities, insights and growth.  It’s a gift to work with people as they come to know themselves and learn how to live life wholly and happily.
