Social Media Director - Dr. Faizal H. Sahukhan

Email: socialmedia@cpca-rpc.ca

Faizal SahukhanDr. Faizal was born in the Fiji Islands and immigrated to Canada at the age of seven with his parents and younger brother. As a child growing up in Vancouver, he experienced everything – the good, the bad, and the ugly – all of which contributed to his development as an individual and a professional.

Early on in his career, he realized that there was a need for counsellors who could help those of diverse cultures. To satisfy this need, he considered all the various avenues accessible to him through which he could help people.

Today, Faizal is a Registered Professional Counsellor, Master Practitioner in Counselling Practice and Clinical Sexologist (since 1997), providing “multicultural sex and relationship therapy.” He is also an instructor at Capilano University, writes a monthly advice column (Dear Faizal, published in the CanadianImmigrant magazine), hosts a radio advice column (Love Across Cultures, on Link, CBC Radio Canada International), is a media-consultant on multicultural relationship issues, and is the author of Dating the Ethnic Man: Strategies for Success (http://www.multiculturalromance.com/dating-the-ethnic-man/).

In his role as the CPCA National Director of Social Media, Faizal plans on working with CPCA members – and communities across Canada - to create social awareness of the power behind the competency-based model as it relates to therapy.

 Atlantic National Director - Linda Floyd-Sadler

 Email: atlanticdirector@cpca-rpc.ca

As a longtime member, Linda is very appreciative of the work that has been done and continues to be done on behalf of its
Atlantic Director Linda Floyd-Sadlermembership and the counselling profession. She has been an active professional counsellor since 2005, and operated her own private practice located in Sussex, New Brunswick, where she and her husband Jack have lived for over 30 years and raised 4 children. Prior to entering the counselling profession, her background was in a variety of helping fields in the non-profit and adult education sectors, and both seemed to offer a kind of natural experiential transition to the work she currently does.  Linda has worked to develop professional partnerships and relationships with a variety of Provincial Programs, and several EAP/EFAP programs, and she regularly serves clients through these pathways, in addition to those who self-refer. She enjoys working across a diverse spectrum of life challenges and issues, and has extensive experience in such areas as parenting, partner and family relationships, separation and divorce, post-trauma care and recovery, and substance use assessment.  Linda looks forward to connecting with CPCA’s Atlantic membership in the weeks and months ahead, as part of an effort to support its continued growth and development within our region, and she invites and encourages any and all members to reach out to her at any time.

Executive Director, Eva Kelades, RPC, MPCC 
executivedirector@cpca-rpc.ca 

Eva KeladesEva has been providing mental health services since 1991. Expanding her education and skills, Eva became a Registered Professional Counsellor with the CPCA in 2006 and has been a Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling since 2011.

Eva has consistently engaged in community work and has passionately served in a variety of local and national non-profit organizations. She has supported a number of organizations such as the Elizabeth Fry Society and as Director and Mentor of community children and youth programs.Presently, she serves as Media Director to a street program working in the inner city of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

 In 2015, Eva became the National President of the CPCA. In this position, she has continued along the same path of exceptional strategic planning with the National Board of Directors ensuring the highest standards of “Excellence in Competence." As a National Director of the CPCA, Eva has been consistently dedicated to the promotion of the competency-based model for certification of professional counsellors and to the expansion of its membership nationwide. Her service began in 2009 as the Atlantic Director where her efforts were focused on Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and the need to create safety for the counselling profession that was being bombarded by a “Master’s Level only” recognition with the Counselling Therapist Act. In 2013, as the National Vice-President she led the Governance committee in fulfilling the mandate of transitioning the CPCA into the new Not-for-profit Act. Some of her achievements were the updating of the CPCA Bylaws, processes and practices to become compliant with the new Act. These accomplishments brought the CPCA into complete compliance a year earlier than mandated by the Federal Government.

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.
