We believe that the first counselling meeting is crucial in understanding the dynamic between therapist and client. We also believe that clients should not have to pay to initially meet a new counsellor. This is why the first session is on us. Together we can come to an understanding of the type of work that can be done and whether the session felt like a good fit. This free session can be in person at the Vancouver office, on the phone or online. You decide whichever feels most comfortable for you. Book below and see for yourself.
***The first free session is available to all new clients. No rescheduling of the first free session is permitted. If you cancel and reschedule the first free session, the first session will not be free and charged at full price.***
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. You can feel stuck in never ending behavioural patterns while potentially seeking chaos for safety. Counselling can help you understand the impacts of trauma. Through application and explanation of neuroscience, we can learn how to regulate your nervous system. Breaking traumatic patterns entails sitting with pain for the eventual joy of owning your trauma narrative. Post traumatic growth can be liberating, however we have to make space to grieve the loss of the person that once was. We can do this together.
Stress, anxiety, fear and depression are some of the most common and uncomfortable states that we can experience at any point in our lives. Through an artfully blended approach to therapy, we can work to recover motivation, perspective, peace, joy and control that you once had in your life. Counselling can provide that relief you have been searching for.
