I am kink -friendly, sex positive , and body neutral.
I work compassionately and non-judgmentally, with a focus on resourcing the body to help process emotions. I am highly relational, and my goal is to build an intimate relationship with you where you have the space to process and release what you've been carrying. I value working with intense emotions, insecure attachment, trauma, and unpacking life experiences to relieve symptoms of anxiety, stuckness, and feelings of unworthiness.

We enjoy working with everyone: polyamorous, kink -identified, or LGBTQ+, always offering authenticity and safety.
At Allura, we know and understand that sexuality is one of the most fun but complicated parts of humanity, while also one of the hardest to find a safe and non-judgmental space to speak openly about. Do you feel overwhelmed when you think about your sexuality, sex life, or relationship? Do you wish for more connection and excitement with your partner? Do you sometimes feel stress or anxiety fill your life? We can help with that. Our clients are professionals, parents, sometimes monogamous and sometimes polyamorous, LGBTQ+ - but they all share one thing in common: they are struggling with their sexuality in some way.

I am sex-positive, kink and fetish-friendly, and sensitive to various diversities.
Taking the first step towards working on our mental health can feel scary. I want to ease this process by compassionately supporting clients through any issues they wish to explore in our sessions. I work with a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, sexuality, life transitions, emotional regulation, relational conflict, and trauma. With openness, curiosity and a strengths-based approach, I work collaboratively with clients in finding ways to navigate these concerns.

I’ve helped many clients explore opening up their relationships in different ways and those finding a mismatch in sexual/ kink desire.
I launched Nested Heart Counselling in 2013 in response to a call from the local polyamorous community saying how challenging it was to find mental health support that didn’t require further education about unconventional identities. I'm not currently accepting new clients personally, however I have collected a group of counsellors with similar values, experience and training as myself across BC. Roxanna, Morgan, Erica all have availability right now for new individual clients. Katree is our practicum student who has reduced cost counselling sessions available in Victoria. You can explore their extensive bios on our website.

As a therapist working with vulnerable and diverse communities, I have learnt to craft a safe and welcoming space for my clients. My practice is culturally sensitive, and I am an LGBTQ2*S ally.

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.

If you are on this page, that means there is a part of you that is looking to healing and living life more fully. Depression, anxiety, trauma and other emotional struggles take away from the joys of everyday life. It might be hard to find the motivation to get out of bed in the mornings. Where you used to enjoy activities with loved ones, you might feel numb , disconnected or overwhelmed with anxiety. You may even find yourself stuck in unhealthy relationships or engaging in behaviors that just don’t feel right. Sometimes, emotions such as anger or anxiety can go from 0 to 100 in a matter of seconds and you may feel "stuck".

Therapy should feel safe and nurturing, but most importantly it should be helpful. In our time together we will work to better understand where you've been, where you are today and where you'd like to be. Therapy is different for everyone, and together we will find how it can be most helpful for you. Some time can be spent understanding the past, some on the present day and some on envisioning what you'd like in the future. Therapy is a break from the everyday; a pause to explore your thoughts, emotions, beliefs and behaviours in order to better understand what is helping and what is hindering your life.

From a young age, I have loved listening to people's stories and being a supportive person helping others explore their inner world. I currently work at a group private practice in Vancouver, called Providence Therapy & Neurofeedback. I commonly work with folks who are wanting help with anxiety, perfectionism, their inner critic, feeling lost, chronically feeling low mood, having difficulty with their friendships and romantic partnerships, coping as best as they can after traumatic experiences and wanting additional support from a professional, and overall just folks who want to understand themselves better.

Anxiety, worry, depression, or stress can prevent us from enjoying the life we desire. What we think and feel can shape our reality, how we navigate the world, and also influence how others respond to us. This is because our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours are all connected and are constantly creating feedback loops – both positive and negative. Sometimes life throws unexpected curveballs that trigger a downward spiral that (at the time) can feel impossible to recover from. Although difficult events can be destabilizing, confusing, and painful they can also offer us the greatest opportunity for growth.

Change. Do you have the feeling that something has to change… but you’re just not sure what it is? Or you have a good idea what and where you want to be… but just don’t know what changes to make to get there? Are you struggling with feelings of depression or anxiety? Or are obsessions and compulsions ruling your life? Are your relationships – intimate, family, work – suffering? And are you ready to take that first step… towards change?

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.

“ I believe sharing our stories about our personal experiences can awaken our awareness, stretch our hearts, and help us heal” Do you feel like you are on a path of self sabotage and feel stuck? Do you live mostly in your head where it is noisy and chaotic? I believe you can transform negative limiting beliefs, never ending fears and uncertainties. I want to help you build the skill to make healthier choices in relationships, jobs and lifestyle that don’t drain the life out of you. I know it takes courage to reach out for help. I promise I am easy to talk to and aim to make therapy both an enjoyable and forward moving process.

Counselling is a collaborative process of exploring the difficulties (stress, emotions, experiences) that the client brings forward in session. Counsellors promote change by helping the client to focus on the feelings, thoughts, behaviours, and experiences that are maintaining barriers to attaining goals. Counsellors are there to “do with” not “do for.” The client is the one that leads the way, while the counsellor acts as a guide or support. My goal is to help you find your voice and your path to being your favorite version of you!
