Have you spent your entire life trying to get over your childhood? Do you deal with crippling anxiety, PTSD, crushing depression, severe sleep problems, or struggle with ADHD? My professional area of interest, and my expertise, is in helping people deal with the aftermath of trauma. I offer somatic- and trauma-informed counselling online, and neurofeedback in-office. Neurofeedback reduces or eliminates symptoms that block your ability to live life to the fullest. Severe trauma--residential school survivors and their families, war veterans , those with histories of severe childhood abuse--may need two to three 20-session blocks.

Others yet are dealing with evolving sexual and/or gender identities, seeking help with their new understandings about themselves. Whether changing perspectives or navigating new territory, Inclusions Counselling can help.

I have been working as a registered psychologist since 2008. It's important to me to create a safe, caring respectful environment where anyone, no matter who they are, feels welcome. The relationship between us is one of the most important factors in determining how helpful counselling with me will be. Clients often come to me with anxiety, depression, traumatic experiences, difficulties with life transitions, and grief or loss. We will work together to develop a plan to deal effectively with the issues that bring you to see me. (Can also contact by Fax: 250.984.0859)

Thinking of going for counselling can be a frightening thought. If you are at this stage you probably feel like your life could be better, your quality of interactions with other people could improve; you want more out of the life you have or are at your wits end in regards to some aspect of your life. Whatever the circumstance my goal is to meet you where you are at and to work together to work towards healing or a better quality of life.

My approach incorporates using knowledge of human design and development to provide a supportive framework from which to normalize and understand concerning emotional experience. I generally employ Schema Therapy to aid clients to identify self-limiting core beliefs and their origins. Somatic (body) awareness may be offered to enhance client awareness. This is an optional, skill-based, self-delivered aspect of treatment. Clients desiring to understand troubling emotional responses to situations, including relationships, stress, depression and anxiety, have consistently benefitted from the above approach.

When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

Clients seek counselling when they are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, chronic pain, relationship challenges or other personal struggle. Counselling can help in times of challenge or crisis by offering a space to be heard without judgement, to explore solutions, and to expand perspectives on healing and wellness. Are there thoughts and patterns that are no longer serving you? Would you like to stop living from a place of fear? Is there an attitude of scarcity that is keeping you small? What does your inner wisdom know is possible, but your inner critic/ego voice whispers can’t be done or is too much?

I believe that my role as a counsellor involves walking alongside my clients while offering an objective and informed perspective. Because I often see people who are seeking change, my goal is to help my clients identify which patterns in their life are helping or hindering their attainment of the changes they desire. I believe that people are naturally adaptive, and psychological distress often occurs when our adaptations no longer work for us in a given situation. My work often involves helping people identify the ways in which their experiences and relationships have influenced how they see and interact with the world.

Hello, my name is Dean Laviolette and this is a counselling practice in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. As a proud Metis, life is both precious and beautiful, just like you. Seeking counselling is an opportunity to unearth and rediscover who you really are. My approach is to build a therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect in a safe environment. Being empathetic and genuine is my commitment to quality of care to clients without being judgmental. The use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches seem to help clients self-explore, become self-aware, and learn self-care.
