Confidential Counselling Services – Office and Online (Canada, US and Worldwide)

best counselling servicesThe Best Counselling Services in Oak Bay and Sidney BC, on Vancouver Island!

When you’re in emotional pain, the best counselling services can help. Even when you think nothing can possibly help, somehow counselling does.

Change the way you look at things  –  and the things you look at change.”  (Wayne Dwyer)

The best counselling services connect you with a deeper part of you, leading you in the right direction and saving you countless hours on your personal journey.

Relationship Counselling:

Your family deserve the best counselling services. You adore your partner but do you long to find a way to speak so that they can truly hear you? There are some very real tools that polish up your relationship and save you years of heartache. Also worth noting: you can use these tools for the rest of your life!

Trauma Counselling:

The best counselling services are healing for all trauma. Have you experienced a physical trauma and need to rebuild from the ground up? I’ve been there: let me help you rebuild the very best life possible. Emotional trauma can be just as difficult as physical trauma. In fact it’s the emotional part of any trauma that causes the most trouble, even for those with an obvious physical trauma.

Office Counselling (see below for Online Counselling, Email Counselling and Counselling Supervision)

best counselling servicesI am based in Sidney BC, on Vancouver Island.   I will also visit you in your home or in hospital if necessary.

Couples Counselling

If you were ‘in love’ once, chances are good that you can be in love again!

When it comes to marriage or relationship, there isn’t a better place to help you stretch and find solutions to whatever problem it is you are facing. I use Imago style therapy, blended with NVC and glued together with TOT.

I also offer premarital counselling (excellent idea!) and parenting help.

Personal Growth Counselling 

Focusing on – and ‘teasing apart’ – your feelings, identifying your needs and brainstorming strategies are the first steps to finding a resolution to whatever’s bugging you.  As you focus on/talk about your deepest issues (and its history), it become conscious and clear. We can go slowly and I will hear every part of your story.

The best counselling services transform the most difficult issue and takes unconscious reaction and transforms it to conscious action. Focusing on your issues – and your self – brings them into the conscious mind. This is the first step towards establishing a peaceful and fulfilled life – although I agree it can take a long time and be hard to do. Watching someone blossom is a beautiful thing and I’d be honoured to take this journey with you.

The methods I use are simple, relatively quick and they work.

Online Counselling

Online counselling sessions are great! Personally much of the time I find them as effective as coming to the office – except it’s about 25% less expensive and I can usually make you an appointment within a few days. Send me an email and suggest 3 times, on separate days and with at least 48 hours notice. I will email you back and I bet one of them will work! At that stage, when you make payment, we will already have made contact.

Email Counselling

Email is often a very good first step. At the least, it’s an economical and useful way of covering some of the relevant background material. At best, you may start to see your own answers from your emails and my replies and not need further help at this stage.

It’s useful to be able to go back over and and be able to reread your emails too. As I said earlier, the answers for the direction you need to take now are often in your subconscious and when you read and reread what you wrote, you may find the answers ‘between the lines’ .

Counsellor Supervision

In Oak Bay or by – I offer collaborative and reflective supervision to all levels of counsellor in the Process Oriented and  Developmentally-based models of supervision. I am a Registered Counselling Supervisor with specialist training through CURA in Vancouver and  PESI CE in Psychodynamic, Imago, NVC, TOT, Person-centred therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative and Solution focused supervision approaches. I also offer hypnotherapy and EFT. Please click here to learn more.

Your individual sessions with me are confidential and affordably priced for new counsellors (similar cost to group supervision). I also offer supervision to supervisors.


Contact me now and let’s start!

Submit the 3 forms required (online and no need to download) – Intake, Ethics, Confidentiality –  and send me a ‘first email’ (found in the same place)  to request a meeting.


You can make payment through the website for Online or Office or by e-transfer.  Office visit payments can be made by cash, through the website or by e-transfer on receipt of your invoice.

Let’s Go!

Online: Please suggest 3 times that suit you, Monday – Friday between 10am and 5pm, with at least 3 days notice.  I’m hopeful that one of those times will work and I will use the days/times as a guide to offer alternatives if necessary!

Office sessions usually require 2 or 3 weeks notice.

One of my favourite quotes:

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again – and expecting different results.” (Albert Einstein)

Thanks and I look forward to meeting you!
