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.

Description

Highly successful experienced counselor. Online sessions anywhere or in person in Richmond, BC. Counseling individuals and groups from diverse backgrounds and cultures. I provide crisis intervention and ongoing support, relationship counselling, premarital counselling and marriage and family counselling. I lead support groups for women experiencing abuse and support families of children and adults with disabilities. I lead workshops on marriage, women’s issues, parenting and communication across North American and abroad. I am a certified facilitator and trainer for Caring Resources’ From Journey to HOPE workshops, teaching tools to renew hope and focus to those experiencing difficult life events. http://www.caringresources.com/hope

My therapeutic approach
My counselling is holistic, compassionate, and person-centered. It is collaborative in nature, with the client and therapist participating as equal partners in both goal-setting and working together to reach those goals. I use an integrative approach to counselling focusing on developing mutuality and compassion. I draw from Compassionate Communication based on the principles of Nonviolent Communication by Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg, cognitive behavioral therapy as used by Dr. David Burns, and interpersonal neurobiology by Dr. Dan Segel. When requested I use principles of pastoral counselling.

Goals of therapy:
Therapeutic goals are set collaboratively with the client. Some common goals are increased self-awareness, improved communication ss, improved relationships, increased self-esteem, improved mood, positive lifestyle changes, improved problem solving and decision making, etc. After therapy, my clients report a shorter return to set point when moods rise and fall and increased ability to talk with their teen children and other family members. They have learned how to express their observations and recommended strategies to superiors at work. And to understand their own core values as they discover methods to live in harmony with those values.
