I DON'T NEED
ANYONE’S PERMISSION TO BE MY TRUE SELF.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
B.A.(Hons), M.Ed., CTT, BFRP, CNT
I received my Master of Education in Counseling Psychology and Human Services from Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, USA. Prior to moving to PA, I spent time in New York City completing my Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Psychology at St. Francis College. I see value in many therapeutic traditions and use a unique and eclectic combination of humanistic, cognitive, transpersonal, and depth psychologies whilst incorporating diverse techniques.
In addition to general counseling, I specialize in female trauma (miscarriage, abortion, rape) and I work closely with adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Through my training as a Certified Trauma Therapist I guide clients individually and gently through the PATH Program. I also am Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained and use this approach to help clients process their traumas and other struggles. As an MBTI® Certified Practitioner I can administer, score and offer feedback on the MBTI® assessment to interested clients. I also take a special interest in working with Highly Sensitive People and spiritual intelligence.
I am particularly blessed to have clients who resonate with some of my alternative approaches, so I am happy to work with clients to find gentle and drug-free alternatives to alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, stress and more. With formal training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and breathwork - both very successful therapeutic practices - an additional therapeutic layer is added.
I am proudly an independent consultant with Families in Action, Trinidad and Tobago. I am a service provider for International Forensics & Business Institute (Trinidad) and the wellness consultant at Yes She Can, a local NGO here in Trinidad. I am also a member of the Association of Female Executives of Trinidad and Tobago (AFETT). I have had continued membership with the American Psychological Association for over 13 years, membership at the Dr. Edward Bach Foundation and the EMDR International Association.
Over time, I have facilitated workshops at Atlantic LNG; Central Bank of Trinidad & Tobago; ABEL Building Solutions; The United States Embassy; PriceSmart; National Flour Mills; Nu-Iron; eTecK; and others.
I am quite devoted to the South of Trinidad and enjoy the quieter pleasures found here.
