Licensed as a general practitioner, Dr. Horton recieved her Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Western Ontario in 1994. She received several recognitions for her outstanding contributions to improving medical student training and was ultimately awarded the prestigious Faculty of Medicine Honour Society Award. In 1996, Dr. Horton completed a two year residency in Family Medicine at the University of Ottawa, again receiving recognition for her many contributions both provincially and nationally in the betterment of medical training. Dr. Horton also has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Waterloo, her hometown, receiving several awards and scholarships during that time. Balancing studies with sport, Dr. Horton swam competively while at Waterloo and won the Most Valuable Player award in her final year.
In 1998, with a growing dissatisfaction with the medical system, its ten minute appointment times, and its disease-based focus, Dr. Horton began to explore alternative methods to healing in Canada, the U.S. and overseas. After doing several meditation retreats, Eastern- based medical philosophies and practises began to profoundly influence her view of health and healing, some of which are now incorporated into her practise. A member of the Canadian Clinical Hypnosis Society since 2006 and trained formally as a life coach through the Coaches Training Institute, Dr. Horton’s focus now is on wellness and well-being. Her extensive varied studies and training enables her to offer an integrated holistic approach or body, mind and spirit where we can translate the body’s wisdom and then select the best “Tools for Transformation” suited for that person to create a personalized wellness success programme.
