Dr. Stacy Thomas, Ph.D, C., Psych

CEO and Clinical Director, Design Your Life

Dr. Stacy Thomas is an award-winning Clinical Psychologist, acclaimed speaker, and the CEO, founder, and clinical director of The Design Your Life Centre, a psychotherapy practice in Toronto.

With more than 20 years experience helping people navigate some of life’s most difficult journeys such as infertility, pregnancy loss, chronic pain, chronic illness and sudden traumatic events, Dr. Stacy’s strength is in her ability to recognize resilience and teach people how to apply proven psychological strategies in order to move past mere survival and thrive in the face of adversity.

Her work with clients seamlessly interweaves Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness Practices, Mental Skills for High Performance, and Clinical Hypnosis with a keen understanding of the limiting life patterns that need to be broken in order to break free and truly show up as our authentic selves.

Her mission to democratize mental health motivated her to create The Growing Forward Journal and The Growing Forward Soul School, an online community focused on helping people grow consciously through whatever life brings.

Her recognition of the great need for reliable mental health education inspired the development of The Design Your Life Academy, a platform featuring masterclasses of her most powerful teachings that have helped countless clients design their lives.

Dr. Stacy has also had the honour of hosting several online summits for Mindful World, including the Mindful World Parenting Summit which has reached a global audience of over 100,000 and counting.
