Margo Lee Burton, RSW
Margo Lee Burton is a Registered Social Worker, Certified Yoga Instructor and Certified Teacher.
Margo’s path in life has been one of healing, following her heart and being in service to others. Through her own healing journey she has worked with various bodyworkers, energy medicine healers, gifted therapists and mentors. She continues to seek out the support of others as she evolves through her life, considering herself a student for life and a teacher, guide, mentor and therapist. Margo’s Masters in Social Work in the Aboriginal Field of Study from Wilfrid Laurier, is supplemented by numerous years working with Indigenous Peoples throughout Ontario and taking Indigenous Environmental Studies at Trent University. In addition she has certification in Transpersonal Psychotherapy from the Transpersonal Therapy Center and the Yoga Development Course from Yasodhara Ashram.
Before Margo’s focus in supporting others in their well-being through therapy and yoga, she was involved in education as a director, teacher, and workshop facilitator. She has her Bachelor of Education in Ecological Experiential Education. Most recently, she brought both passions together as a School Social Worker and a Staff Wellness Coordinator with the Peterborough Catholic School Board.
Margo’s eclectic cultural and spiritual interests have led her to traveling in Germany, South America, and all across Canada keeping connected and sharing with Indigenous Peoples Traditions, Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism. This provides Margo with a remarkable perspective that provides her opportunities to relate with a vast range of clients, and their value systems.
A common thread in all of Margo’s work and personal life is balance and interconnection. Margo helps others navigate their lives and find their own balance and support systems. She works from a holistic lens, being mindful of the emotional, spiritual, mental and physical aspects of each individual’s life.
