Alan McAllister, PhD, CPsych.

Alan has worked in the field of psychological services for over 40 years and was registered as a psychologist in Ontario in 1994. He went on to earn doctoral degrees in philosophy (University of Toronto, 1975), child studies (1980), and psychology (York University, 1993). He started meditating while an undergraduate student at Stanford University and, more than twenty-four years ago, he began working with biofeedback and neurofeedback with the intent of healing the mind and optimizing functioning using these technologies. He has worked in schools, primary healthcare teams,  and clinical settings with individuals of all ages. He is the author of The Attentive Mind Workbook: Self-healing through Meditation, which is a workbook on meditation based on contemporary psychological theory and research. His focus is on integrating psychotherapy, meditation, neurofeedback, and other neuroshaping techniques.
