I work with clients who want to find relief from their struggles with the following: depression, anxiety, anger, grief and loss, worthlessness, despair, disordered eating, life/work transitions, addiction (substances, pornography and gambling ), and the negative impact of sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and poverty. Often in the beginning, people come in feeling overwhelmed and frustrated and may be clearer initially of what isn't working for them or what they no longer want in their life. I believe these feelings are a resource to reveal what you do want in your life, what's important to you, your values, hopes, dreams and commitments.

I am a Registered Social Worker (MSW, RSW) who provides individual therapy/counselling services in BC. My practice is largely informed by a person-centred approach. I believe each person is the expert in their own life and inherently has the knowledge and resources necessary to guide the therapeutic process, make changes, and move toward their preferred ways of living. I am here to support you in this process. I also draw from a variety of other therapeutic modalities, including Narrative Therapy, AEDP and Existential Therapy.

Change is often challenging. There may be times when we feel that someone in our life should change, or certain aspects of ourselves need to be reassessed. Committing to making these differences is usually difficult. However, continuing to live with certain discomforts may become unbearable over time. If these discomforts are left unacknowledged, we might be left feeling overly fatigued, depressed, anxious, irritable, or resentful towards certain people who we are close with. Reassessing self-care strategies may be a step towards a more meaningful life. If any of this sounds relatable to you, then counseling might be able to help.

I believe that every client is innately aware where they need to go (in therapy) to heal themselves. My role is to use my skills to help them along in that process. I meet clients where they are at recognizing that may change from session to session. We start with their goal(s) for counselling and work from there. I don't "need" to know anything in particular before we start. I find that with a trusting relationship, a client will share all that is relevant in order to attain their goal(s).

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.

Something's in the way. Sadness, anxiety, loneliness, stress, worry, depression, substance use, loss. The world is heavy, and that weight can be paralyzing. You know that you have something to offer. You're compassionate, creative, intelligent, sensitive, loving, and yet strong-willed, skeptical, and maybe even a bit rebellious. It seems as though you don't fit the mold, but it's the mold that doesn't fit you. Social isolation, feeling disconnected from others, from the world, adds to the weight, to the pain. If you could only break free from the self-doubt that cultures and institutions feed, the world might just open up for you.

Hi I’m Dani and I’m the Counsellor-Match Consultant on our team. I get to know a bit about you and then I find the counsellor that is the best fit for you, as opposed to having the onus on the client to rely on intake forms and unguided selection within a large pool of counsellors. Although I'm a Master’s Level Registered Counsellor with the BCACC, I do not pick up clients long-term, I match people with the counsellor that specifically meets their needs so they're able to get the right fit, right away. We do not get into the depth of your story, your secrets, or your vulnerabilities. I utilize trauma-informed personality psychology.

When my daughter was only three months old my husband got suddenly extremely sick, to the point that he almost didn’t make it. Although this marked a challenging moment in our lives, it was also a very transformative time. Once we survived those gruelling months, we decided to change our lives and do more of what we love. It was time for me to do what I always wanted to do in life, to help others find ways to fulfill there lives to the fullest as well as help people transition through difficult circumstances.

I have a doctoral degree in psychology (PsyD), am a psychoanalyst, a psychotherapist, and a musician. Psychoanalytic therapy is a journey we undertake together! It is different from many other approaches because we look at the immediate issues, but the focus is on the deeper issues and on making the deeper change! As you share your life story and struggles, we will look at the unconscious and conscious patterns that emerge in your life in a non-judgmental way. The aim is for you to find yourself!

I draw on the commonalities that exist between therapeutic approaches, and am aligned with anti-oppression perspectives. I utilize deep, introspective practices and pragmatic, solution-oriented practices to help clients cultivate greater self-compassion; achieve greater effectiveness in their relationships and communities; and grow towards deeper fulfillment in their lives. I am also able to offer a truly holistic therapy, combining talk therapy, mindfulness, and movement. I am a good fit for those impacted by marginalization, those with shame and self-esteem challenges, those impacted by trauma and addiction, and for couples.

I believe we come into the world with a unique gift. My job is to help you discover and utilize the treasures within you. Our values, beliefs, and definitions of success are informed by our families of origin and sociocultural expectations—but by building awareness of the stories we unconsciously carry, we can clear the mist to reveal our personal path to happiness. My humanistic approach to counseling involves creating a strong therapeutic alliance with you to help you gain insight, freedom, and autonomy. Every time a client sees me, I want them to leave our sessions with new understandings of themselves, and to have renewed hope.

A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.
