Counsellor Directory

This innovative membership service serves to promote business information about your counselling practice, specialized services and skills as well as the ability to upload a profile picture and business logo. With futurist trends heading towards a generation that seeks information online as well as a specific set of skills, knowledge and experience, the CPCA believes this directory will provide a competitive edge for marketing our member's counselling services across Canada to the public, insurance providers, EAP contractors and government for verification of your legitimacy. All members who are in "good standing" will be approved to list their contact information in the directory on an annual basis. It allows our members to login to their directory listing once it has been approved and make any changes to their contact information.

Cities of practice



I'm Michelle Patterson, a Registered Professional Counsellor with the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association. About Me, I have been working in the field of mental health, addictions, and eating disorders since 1998. I have worked in various settings, including: residential eating disorder treatment facilities, Vancouver Island Health Authoritys Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Teams, Ministry of Children and Family Development: Child Protection Services, and in an outreach/community-based manner. I have travelled to Europe to assist in the delivery of education and training in the field of eating disorder treatment and have learned much in my years of working with allied mental health professionals and the individuals themselves. My private practice is growing and I am currently accepting clients in the following areas: Family Development: Supporting parents and families involved with the Ministry of Children and Family Development, Providing assistance to reduce or eliminate risks identified by the MCFD Child Protection social worker, I am also available and qualified to provide supervised access between parents and their child(ren) where the child is in care or supervision has been deemed necessary. Eating Disorders:

Providing support and counselling to those with eating disorders, disordered eating, issues with food, and/or body image issues.
I also offer support and counselling to spouses/partners and family members of those struggling with eating disorders.

Mental Health and Addictions:

Providing support and counselling for those with mental health and/or addictions challenges. I primarily focus: substance-related disorders, mood disorders, and anxiety disorders, as well as personality disorders.

I offer collaborative, solution-focused counselling within a biopsychosocial model of treatment - addressing the biological, psychological, and social factors which contribute to illness. I strongly believe people have the ability to achieve lasting wellness. Working with a mental health professional can help individuals navigate this journey.
