About Kathleen Maiman
Kathleen Maiman BSc, RTT(T), RIHR is a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist based in Calgary that provides counselling for couples and individuals. She is also an Advanced Clinician in Imago Relationship Therapy and a member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP) and Psychologist’s Association of Alberta (PAA). She has been in private practice since 2003.
In the helping profession of oncology since 1993, Kathleen held a long-standing career in the medical radiation sciences with positions at Sunnybrook Medical Centre in Toronto and the BC Cancer Agency, Vancouver. Her contribution to the University of Toronto/Michener Institute in integrative medicine and interprofessional collaboration promoted leadership and empowerment of both her students and the development of the faculty. Kathleen’s extensive psychotherapy training at the Transformational Arts College in Toronto provides a holistic approach to clients, utilizing experiential techniques that maximize personal growth and awareness.
Personally trained by Maureen Brine R.N., I.C.A.D.C in Toronto (who was formerly trained by Harville Hendrix Ph.D. co-founder of Imago Relationship Therapy), Kathleen Maiman received a wealth of experience while practicing as an associate. The conscientious mentoring and coaching at Maureen Brine and Associates Ltd. provided a rich and effective skills-based approach to working with couples and individuals.
Her ongoing passion for continuing education has led her to be trained and mentored by Sharon Stanley – Somatic Transformation, (a rich body-mind relational therapy created through the work of Peter Levine) and Stan Tatkin – Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT). Kathleen Maiman, a certified Imago therapist and marriage counsellor, uses the PACT model of Stan Tatkin’s with her couples. This approach using psycho-neurobiological theories of human relationship integrates principles of early mother-infant attachment with adult romantic relationships and is a model that fits well with Imago Relationship Therapy.
