“Registered Clinical Counselling is a healthcare profession dedicated to helping people identify and maximize their ability to understand how their patterns of thinking impact mental/ emotional health, stress, and physical pain”
What is Registered Clinical Counselling?
The profession of Registered Clinical Counselling, also known as Counselling or Psychotherapy, has evolved to become a primary healthcare modality in Canada. The Counselling profession in BC is regulated by the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. (BCACC)
The Counselling profession involves multiple interventions for the treatment and prevention of emotional/ mental unrest and how physical pain is perceived.
Counselling is about finding solutions for mental/ emotional unrest that may be standing in the way of your long-term life enjoyment and/ or physical pain relief. The important thing to understand about Counselling is that you are in control of the process. A Counsellor is merely a guide to help you ask questions that lead to solutions for your full recovery from an accident or other traumatic life events.
Based on your level of comfort our Counsellors offer both Telehealth and In-Clinic options. Understanding your unique needs a Counsellor can help you determine the best format for service delivery.
