Peggy Tileston, MA, MT-BC, CMSII-BC, CLYL
I've spent the last 35 years serving as a therapist, educator, and consultant who assists individuals and groups in navigating away from beliefs and behaviors that cause suffering towards ways of thinking and daily practices that build resiliency and well being in all aspects of their lives. My greatest pleasure is guiding others to resource and develop their innate capacities for creativity, compassion, joy and connection. When not happily engaged in my
work, I can be found practicing what I teach: making music or art,
meditating, doing yoga, petting other people's dogs ( I'm currently
"between dogs"), escaping into nature, connecting locally and globally
to build community, laughing and lollygagging around with friends and family...
How It Works
sessions: I'm available for sessions in person if you are in the
Philadelphia, PA region and through email, phone and Skype if you are not.
classes and workshops: Check the Events page to keep up to date on
current and future public offerings. We can also design a class or
workshop based upon your needs.
fees are determined by the nature and duration of the work we do together,
so please contact me for more information. Together we will create
the best program that works for you. Although I do not accept
insurance, I’m happy to negotiate creative payment plans.

“I’ve been having many
human experiences lately that have reminded me of things you taught me
when I was a 16 year old girl... I have started meditating and yoga
again and as soon as I begin either I begin to weep...its been truly
amazing to stop and be in the moment and let the thoughts flow through
me and then let them go. I remember years ago you teaching me to ground
myself feel my roots in the earth ... this past week I was truly having a
spiritual bottom I stopped and grounded myself and remembered my place
in the universe and began to cry it was like coming home... I wanted to
let you know I’m 39 now and your beautiful words are just as powerful
today as they were all those years ago”
