Carey Morning, MsT, BS, MA, is an American psychotherapist, teacher, writer and mother who has worked psychotherapeutically for over 25 years with individuals and groups, and also specializes in creating ritual and healing retreats for adults and children.

She has trained in developmental models of psychotherapy which include an understanding of the body and the importance of the spiritual dimension.

Since 2006 she has also worked within the residential child care sector, developing staff training in attachment and child development, and models for enriching and making truly therapeutic the daily lives of those in care and those who care for them.

She works deeply with the stories of our lives, that we might find and claim them, appreciate and honour them, and ultimately expand upon them. The therapy is about growth in compassion, about making meaning, about developing our humanity. It can begin anywhere and belongs to all of us.
