It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one most adaptable to change.

My Vision

About Made in Thought

Four valves, one heart
Two hemispheres, one brain
Yet in fragments we reflect, and in conflict we remain.

Life is a dynamic journey filled with changes and challenges, so my focus lies in the movement of change and adaptation.

I believe in embracing the power of movement, free from scripts or predetermined approaches that attempt to fit you into a particular mold or ‘cookie-cutter’. There are no scripts; your life is not a theatrical play or an audition for a new role. By tapping into your insights, you can ignite your natural drive and inspiration, fueling the quality of movement that is healthy change and adaptation. Inspiration is the aftertaste of insight, the echo of your eureka moment, and the organic, natural movement of you that cannot be scripted, manipulated, or molded toward genuine healthy change.

Made in Thought Counselling Services is a personal and professional endeavor, born out of insight, driven by inspiration, shaped by experience, and made for you to challenge the notion that you’re confined within the bubble of your personality or solely defined by your experiences. While experiences can shape us, they do not have to bind us.

In the ebb and flow of life, it’s natural for us to be affected by its currents. After all, we are only human – inherently fallible and vulnerable to life’s challenges. My intention is not to erase your inner wounds or scars but to acknowledge and work with them. When I say ‘them,’ I refer to you, as scars do not exist independently from those who bear them.

To engage with Made in Thought is to engage with yourself, where there is no beginning, only the space to shape your journey and uncover what seems lost within.

To those who may be experiencing doubt and/or dread when considering seeking support, I encourage you to take a moment to acknowledge and honor your reactions, your survival coping strategies – the strategies that have carried you this far. While Made in Thought cannot make promises or guarantee any specific outcomes, behind every doubt lies a chance for growth, and behind every dreaded fear lies the drive to protect, which, at its most basic, reflects the underlying fabric of our nature.

Tudor Caliman

I’m a Registered Psychologist, a Certified Canadian Counsellor, and the founder of Made in Thought Counselling Services.

My approach to therapy is to provide guidance and compassionate support to explore clients’ needs and activate healing, empowering resilience in the face of adversity.

My passion is to offer a space for those who are struggling with various forms of loss and anxiety, or for those seeking a place for check-ins and preventative care to maintain strong mental hygiene.

Throughout my career, I have been committed to advancing mental health awareness and support by providing countless therapy sessions, facilitating numerous workshops and trainings, and delivering an assortment of presentations on mental health. My experience extends beyond clinical work, as I have also participated in committees to develop mental health workshops that are now taught and facilitated throughout Alberta by various reputable establishments.

No Disillusionment

I have no disillusionment that, despite my professional background, training, and experience, I am imperfect, which aptly fits with our nature.

Acknowledging the vulnerability of imperfection can give rise to humility, compassion, and opportunities for learning and growth. Using these ingredients, and not ‘snake oil,’ spurs mental health. Integrating fragments of heartfelt experiences on the plain of connection can activate healthy change.

While so much of the therapy process depends on a combination of factors, including your participation and various healing modalities, I cannot guarantee that Made in Thought Counselling Services will transform your quality of life. There are no dangled carrots, and no such promises can be made. If you decide to invest your time and resources in Made in Thought, the key person you will consistently check-in with is yourself. I will meet you in that place and will draw on my training, experience, and knowledge to walk alongside you to support and cultivate your well-being.
