Ann Bayly-Bruneel Selected as Top Psychotherapist of the Year by IAOTP

Ann Bayly-Bruneel was recently selected as Top Psychotherapist for 2024 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for her outstanding leadership, dedication, and commitment to the industry.

Inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself; only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations, and contributions to their communities. All Honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP annual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements.


With more than two decades of experience in the industry, Ms Bayly-Bruneel has certainly proven herself as an expert in her field. As a dynamic, creative, compassionate & collaborative leader, Ann has worked across Canada in many hospital, community and private practice settings. Ann has held the role of Manager of Programs & Services at a Community Mental Health Agency in Ontario and was a Counsellor & Art Therapist at Women’s College Hospital working in the Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Care Centre and High-Risk Perinatal Unit. 

Ms. Bayly-Bruneel’s work specializes in the area of complex and developmental trauma. With an awareness of our intersectional identities, she is trained in various integrative and relational therapies that address mind, body and spirit. Some of her training includes; Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems, NeuroAffective Relational Model, Art Therapy, EMDR, and Reiki.  Ann believes that every person has the innate ability to live and harness an authentically bold and heart-centred life. Trauma and oppression disconnects us from this truth leaving behind lasting wounds that hurt our relationship to ourselves and others.  Ann values transformative approaches that emphasize collective and community care and orients her practice alongside other leaders & healers to support healing justice, embodied liberated consciousness, and restorative well-being. 

Before embarking on her career path, Ms Bayly-Bruneel graduated from the University of Guelph with a B.A and Masters-level training from The Vancouver Art Therapy Institute. Ann’s education has valued different ways of knowing which has supported her in cultivating her intuition and unique skills. 

Throughout her illustrious career, Ms. Bayly-Bruneel has received many accolades and has been recognized worldwide for her accomplishments. This year she will be considered for the Empowered Woman Award and to be featured in TIP (Top Industry Professionals) Magazine. She will be honoured at IAOTP’s annual awards gala at the NYC Plaza Hotel this December for her selection as Top Psychotherapist of the Year. 

In addition to her successful career, Ms, Bayly-Bruneel was honoured by Brainz Magazine with the CREA Global Award for making a difference through her work and advocacy. In addition, she was invited to be a speaker at the 21st Century Women’s Entrepreneurship & Leadership Conference in Madrid this past year. Ms. Bayly-Bruneel emphasizes the importance of self-healing as a path to support personal and system transformation. Ann is deeply committed to her own nervous-system healing and views this as integral to being an embodied human & psychotherapist who shows up with presence, resonance, humility and grace. She uses somatic, expressive, relational processes to amplify healing in its multi/intergenerational forms. A trauma-responsive, attachment focused and social justice lens is what she refers to as heart-sight; seeing our essence as our currency. 

The president of the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP), Stephanie Cirami, stated: “Choosing Ms. Bayly-Bruneel for this honour was an easy decision for our panel to make. Ms. Ann Bayly-Bruneel is inspirational, influential and a true visionary and thought leader. We cannot wait to meet her & celebrate her accomplishments at this year’s gala.”

Looking back, Ann attributes her success to her family, mentors, fellow collaborators and the creative life force in all of us. In the future, she hopes to inspire and influence a new way of being that honours our innate sense of BE-longing.
