Ala Purchla

Ala is an integrative therapist who co-creates containers with her clients to explore their goals, relationships and life transitions. She invites all of life's challenges including grief, loss, depression, self-esteem issues, anxiety and existential concerns.

Her work is inspired by a range of modalities including Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems, Existentialism, Gestalt & Somatic Experiencing. However she is most interested in drawing uniquely from those tools to support her clients in meaningfully connecting with their bodies, emotions and stories.

In her work, Ala draws on her experiences of immigrating from Poland as a child, her explorations of creative expression, spirituality and ecology & her previous work in the social change sector and as a nurse in emergency, remote and hospice settings.

Ala values the importance of fostering an inclusive space for all individuals to safely share the experiences and stories that have shaped them. She is LGBTQIA+ friendly & culturally inclusive.

Ala’s fee is $120 per session.
