Amy Sedgwick, BSc (O.T.)
HRHP, Senior Faculty, Executive Director
Amy’s Justisse journey began after side effects from hormonal birth control nearly destroyed her breastfeeding relationship with her newborn daughter in 2005. Seeking a natural yet effective contraceptive alternative, she turned to the Justisse Method of Fertility Management. Through learning to chart her cycles and working with an HRHP, Amy uncovered answers to longstanding health problems and was able to reverse debilitating menstrual symptoms and achieve energy and vitality she hadn’t experienced since childhood. Since then Amy has committed herself to helping others achieve optimal health through menstrual cycle charting and body literacy.
Born and raised in Toronto, Amy has a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy from the University of Toronto and earned her certification as a Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner in 2010. She has been engaged in work for the Justisse College since 2014. Amy completed her HRHPE training in March, 2020.
Through Red Tent Sisters, a business Amy started in 2007 with her sister Kim, Amy has supported individuals of all genders and sexual orientations to use fertility awareness to achieve or avoid pregnancy, and to maximize their reproductive health. In 2019, after living in Antigonish, NS for three years, Amy opened a private practice where she combines her work as an Occupational Therapist, HRHP, Arvigo Practitioner and Harner Shamanic Counsellor. Amy currently divides her time between faculty and executive work for Justisse, her private clinical practice, and doing contract Occupational Therapy work for Veterans Affairs Canada. Amy is currently studying Dynamic Emotional Integration, a unique approach to counselling and working with emotions.
