Euan Fraser Tait
Euan Fraser Tait is in the final year of his MA in Counselling Psychology at Western University. He graduated from Carleton University with an Honours Bachelor in Psychology and has many years of mental health crisis line experience. His psychological research interests lie primarily in the mental health benefits of compassion and learning to treat ourselves with kindness. Currently he is completing an internship at Fanshawe and facilitating a series of compassion-focused teen therapy groups.
Our society places a premium on endless production at the cost of time with ourselves and our loved ones which can over time strangle our artistic creativity and joy in life. Euan’s goal is to help others find creative ways of caring for themselves and growing to be best prepared for the challenges and hard work of a life well lived.
Euan will be partnering with the Embassy Cultural House to provide a monthly mental heath advice column for 2022, which will be available through ECH News in the coming weeks.
