Rob McRae is a psychotherapist and author who has worked in healthcare settings for almost 20 years, with clinical work in hospitals, addiction rehabilitation centers, and community health care before entering private practice.
Rob has a Masters degree in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy from Wilfrid Laurier University and is a Registered Member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (#003746). Rob has also completed two units of CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) with the Canadian Association of Spiritual Care (CASC).
Post-graduate education for Rob has been primarily in the areas of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), The Work of Byron Katie, EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and IFS (Internal Family Systems).
After experiencing first-hand the devastating effects of mental health in himself and his own family, Rob sought answers which led to a major life transformation at the age of 20. After this, his life became devoted to healing and growth in himself and others.
Since publishing a book about spirituality in 2006, Rob has continued to teach mindfulness and non-dual ideas, bringing them into his own style of holistically integrated therapy. While considering himself a deeply spiritual person, he is also an academic with respect but not affiliation to any religious tradition. He has spent time in Hindu Ashrams in India, Buddhist monasteries in North America, a Christian Theological Seminary, Nondual contemplation retreats, and Vipassana training.
When he’s not busy being a therapist and running Wise Path Counselling, you can find Rob running and cycling by the waterfront, painting, being a novel and music nerd, dreaming about his next trip to Iceland, and increasingly, just sitting quietly, enjoying the beauty of life.
