Are you longing to feel more connection and harmony in your relationships? Do you sometimes feel like your emotions are too much for you? Are you often feeling sad or anxious? Many of my clients are professionals, parents, students, and creatives who appear to be functioning well on the outside, but inwardly are feeling anxious, inadequate, and disconnected. Whether you are struggling with a current situation, or wanting to process deeper emotional and interpersonal patterns, I am happy and prepared to support you.

Life is challenging and we all experience difficulties coping at times. Growth often comes from crises and the taxing periods of our lives. When our resilience is overwhelmed by our life circumstances, we can feel lost and doubt ourselves. Our emotions tell us if we are living true to our needs and values...or not. Experiences can lead to healing and growth. My speciality, Soul Work is an investment that leads to a richly authentic life experience. I am dedicated to helping you navigate the difficult times and understand your journey. Together we will help you regain holistic health in a safe, confidential space.

You may feel that there’s something off yet you can’t pinpoint precisely what. Perhaps you feel disconnected from the world and your truth. You may feel broken beyond repair because the pain is so real and constant that you just became accustomed to it. “Am I doing enough? Am I doing life the right way?” The trouble is that overwhelming feelings can make it even harder to open up and trust friends, loved ones and even therapists—right when we need connection most. …But be kind to yourself. Being human can get complicated sometimes and there is nothing wrong with how you feel.

One of the most rewarding feelings in life is to feel a sense of ease and acceptance with who you are, despite your vulnerabilities. Like many others, it might be difficult for you to lean on others, yet you face challenges in managing your own emotions. Some days leave you feeling empty, and at times worry or anger may consume you. You may feel disconnected from others or who you once were. I have been in the education system for 15 years and have extensive experience working with a variety of people struggling with difficult family dynamics, anxiety, depression, separation, divorce, trauma, major life transitions, and abuse.

Are you feeling scared, tense, or anxious? Does your anxiety increase whenever you are reminded about a terrifying event from the past? Or does your anxiety "come out of the blue" sometimes? Do you feel "emotionally numb," "empty," or "detached" from your environment? Are you avoiding people, places, or things that remind you of a terrifying event? I understand that such feelings, as well as the tendency to isolate, can make it seem as if you have no control over your body and your life. Sometimes, the feelings of loss of control may be so intense that you think you are "going crazy," and may even become angry with loved ones.

I’m interested in people’s stories and providing a safe space where we can tell their story in a way that is meaningful and important to them. One of the main goals of counselling is to activate your own ability for compassion, healing, motivation, and hope. I am open to working with people from all walks of life and identities, and I’m interested in hearing about your individual experiences and perspectives. There is no shame or blame in having a tough time or not being sure what you would like to happen in this chapter of your life.

Welcome to Integrated Counselling and Somatic Therapy. A gentle question for you: if you take a little moment to gently pause... and just notice your breathing... May I ask: what is most important to you? Knowing the answer is sometimes easy, sometimes elusive. It usually lights the way forward. If you are struggling with unresolved trauma, anxiety, grief, depression, relationship or career issues or feeling dissatisfied with life, growth and healing are attainable. For in-person sessions, as I have limited availability, please inquire by email. If you'd like to know more, please go to: www.benbasscounselling.com.

Calling all Teens, Young Adults and Parents of Young Adults! Are you looking for help navigating what is arguably the most confusing and challenging time of your life? With the inescapable nature of social media, the prevalence of cyberbullying, and the pressure to seem perfect online, youth of today have more issues to deal with than ever before and the pandemic has only intensified these issues.

We are all deserving and capable of enjoying fulfilling romantic and sexual relationships. Connection is the key to a life lived full. Connection to yourself first and foremost— awareness of your emotions, body sensations, values, and needs. Believing fully in your inherent worth, flaws and all. Connecting to others through a practice of empathy, vulnerability, and reliability is how we create strong relationships to our loved ones and the world around us.

My name is Bruce Avery, I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor and I'm the founder of Avery Therapy Centre. I work with a wide range of people who may seek increased perspective, self-understanding, and clarity in their everyday lives. I also work with people who may feel that anxiety, depression, or trauma (past/current) is hindering them from achieving a sense of fulfillment and purpose. Through my work, I hear stories of both extraordinary achievements as well as unbearable challenges. I've found the work of counselling to be incredibly fulfilling, and feel honoured when trusted with the opportunity to learn about someone’s life.

We can’t always think our way out of chronic stress or trauma. One of the biggest issues we face as humans is the feeling that we are trapped by our physical and emotional states. As a result, we can feel stuck in patterns of panic, anxiety and depression or with physical symptoms like migraines, gastrointestinal issues and trouble sleeping. Left unattended, we can find ourselves isolated, feeling helpless and powerless. The brilliance of somatic therapy is the ability to explore both the psyche and soma or body-held memories to find solutions to what has felt beyond hope.

You feel disconnected and unhappy. You’ve lost interest in things you once enjoyed and spend a lot of time on your phone or computer to distract you from the stress in your life. You have goals and dreams that you’d like to pursue but fear of failure and procrastination leave you feeling paralyzed. It’s hard to imagine a bright future or things changing, but you haven’t given up yet. You want to have a clear path forward so you can find enjoyment and meaning in your work, relationships, and hobbies.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Vancouver are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Vancouver then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Vancouver, or Child Psychologists in Vancouver.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Vancouver psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Vancouver specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
