Clinical Counsellor

Acacia Dockside


Tracy Lowe is working with patients on a case by case basis. If you wish to see Tracy for counselling or Guided Imagery & Music, please call the Acacia Health – Dockside to reach Tracy.

Practices Guided Imagery & Music (GIM), the first counsellor in Victoria accredited in GIM.

Areas of interests:

  • Music and neuroplasticity
  • Therapeutic altered states of consciousness
  • Social justice and mental health

There have been times in Tracy’s own life when music seemed like her best counsellor. It helped her feel whole and connected to life when everything else seemed to be falling apart. Where words fail, music has been there to express the inexpressible. Through this, Tracy has developed a lifelong interest in the therapeutic power of music. She has been fortunate enough to study a very unique form of music psychotherapy known as Guided Imagery & Music.

Tracy began volunteering as a counsellor over 25 years ago. After working in media for several years, she decided to study Music Therapy at Capilano University where Tracy was awarded several scholarships, including the:

  • Paul Gallagher Scholarship for Excellence
  • Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund Scholarship

Her interest in music, spirituality and mental health led me inevitably towards Guided Imagery & Music. After finishing a MA in Counselling Psychology at the University of Victoria, Tracy joined the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association in 2015 and became a Fellow of the Association for Music and Imagery (FAMI) in 2016. Tracy now practises as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) and an accredited practitioner of GIM – the only GIM accredited counsellor in Victoria. The websites for these professional bodies are below.

What she loves about GIM is that it combines the best of old and new, from ancient healing methods involving music and imagery, to supporting the principles of neuroplastic change. Counselling, therapy, and even life itself can be very hard work. The gift of music and imagery is that they can help us access resources we never knew we had, glimpse other possibilities and make this work not just bearable but beautiful to experience and fun to do.
