Q&A with Heather Giasson, R.Ac.

What brought you to this work?

I’ve always felt there was something I was not understanding about my emotions, and pretending they weren’t there wasn’t working for me anymore. I found The Language of Emotions and knew straight off this was the work I’d been looking for both personally and within the work I was already doing. It wasn’t that things changed overnight for me, it was that there was now a light offered in the experience of integrating my emotional self with the rest of me. This continues to be a fuel for me as I grow and develop more capacity and ease in engaging with my emotions.

What do you do for fun?

I love to take photos and look through a camera lens. There’s something invisible and powerful that comes through and enriches my soul every time I go out into nature to take photos.

What are some of the highlights of the work you’ve done with DEI?

My curiosity and explorer-type nature is loving the journey into emotions. The best thing I’ve realized and am reminded of over and over, is that developing this skillset helps me in my life. It becomes about more than emotions; it’s the way I relate to the world and other people in it and how I feel connected to life.

I can recognize now when I’m about to have a breakthrough that changes everything about how I understand the DEI world; and I can only laugh because I get so excited about the new perspective that I now see differently. It is (almost) every time followed by me saying “ohhhhhhhh, that’s something to unpack.” I love to add in humour and lightness to the work; it helps move me through the more challenging parts and I think I add that into my workshops and presentation style.

What are your more recent projects?

I’m working on shining a spotlight on what emotions look like when they are channelled and processed well because it doesn’t always look like emotion was present. If we don’t know the outcome of developing emotion skills I feel like there’s more hesitation to engage with the work, so I’m trying to eliminate that hurdle.

What type of clients do you work with?

I love to work with clients that are on journeys of better understanding themselves as a whole person and living with more authenticity and integrity in the world. Those who are looking to make a change in the way they relate to emotions within themselves and who are ready to enter transformation as a result of that change are kindred spirits to work with.

How has DEI most impacted your own life?

I think the biggest shift has been in the self-acceptance realm for me. Once I stopped trying to eliminate my emotions and actually be who I am, there was a pretty profound shift in the way I speak to, respond to, and love myself.

Where do you see yourself in regard to this work in the future?

I love inspiring people to turn toward their emotions, so it’s my intention to continue speaking that message to audiences and get more people aware that the DEI method is out there as an option to address emotions.

Any last thoughts? 

I think we’ve all experienced to some degree the impact of excluding our emotions and all the difficulty that comes with that. While learning this work is clumsy and new at first, it’s so worth the effort to be better in tune with this aspect of ourselves.

Thanks, Heather!
