Clinical Counselling

Why seek counselling?


Counselling support is available for anything that is causing you distress—whatever is preventing you from functioning at your full potential, or impacting your personal, family or vocational pursuits.

We believe that all people deserve to be listened to in an atmosphere that promotes unconditional acceptance with a nonjudgmental attitude. We believe that all people have a need to experience love and acceptance despite past choices they may have made.

Our counselling services are available to assist and work with individuals, couples and families. If you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions.

Sometimes we need someone to guide us and give us a hand up.

  • Who am I ?

  • Is it normal to feel this way?

  • What is my life’s purpose?

  • What keeps me stuck in this lifestyle?

  • How can I change?

  • Why do I have a hard time saying “no”?

  • How can I have a happier marriage?

  • How do I communicate with my teenager?

  • How do I get my child to listen?

We can help with these questions and other concerns you may have.

Counselling presents the opportunity to truly be heard and brainstorm effective solutions.

What counselling is :

Counselling facilitates change. Most people pursue counselling because they are lost, stuck or unhappy; they are smart enough to know they feel this way and have the courage to seek help.

Counselling presents the opportunity to truly be heard and brainstorm effective solutions.

Counselling assists people in becoming aware of what’s happening within them and within their relationships so they can best decide what needs to change and how to initiate this change.

What counselling is not :

Counselling is not merely a (one-way) conversation; it is where the client discusses his or her issues in an atmosphere of confidentiality and non-judgment and where collaboratively options are discovered and put into action.

Counselling is not directive or a dictating of what to do or how to be, however the counsellor may offer suggestions based on theory, practice and experience, however the client is the expert of his/her own life.
