Hello, I am glad you are here. Did you know anxiety disorders are the most prevalent disorders affecting Canadians today? I can help. I offer 25 years providing counselling (& consultation) to individuals & families. Social work values emphasize a strengths perspective. We all manage stress differently. Life stressors can result in significant anxiety, fear & worry. Let's work together to explore strategies including CBT to better manage life stressors. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy has emerged as the gold standard in effectively treating anxiety. The BC College of Social Workers protects the public by governing Social Work practice.

Thank you for being here and showing an interest in Narrative Therapy. It is quite possible that you are wondering, "What exactly is Narrative Therapy?" Narrative practice is a respectful, non-blaming approach to therapy and community work. It is dedicated to rich questions and generous listening. Narrative therapy explores the many skills, values, beliefs, abilities and commitments people have and is curious about the dominant discourses a person may find themselves up against in their lives.

I see the therapy room as a place where people discover that "home" is an internal state. Trust is difficult, and it can feel like an immeasurable risk to explore the most vulnerable of spaces: your innermost thoughts and feelings. I seek to understand my clients' experiences and see the world as you do. Not all clients are alike, and I aim to tailor my approach to the needs and worldviews of each client. I describe my approach to therapy as integrative with a collaborative stance and an emphasis (where appropriate) on interpersonal and existential issues.

I work with men who have used violence, threats and intimidation against others. I am a service provider for mental health claims with the Worksafe BC.

Is your child struggling at school? Are teachers raising concerns that they may have a learning issue, or attention problems, or other issues that are interfering with their ability to be successful at school? Or is your child showing signs of emotional issues, and you wonder if it's normal or whether it might be something more serious, like depression, an anxiety disorder, or distorted thinking?

First off, I want to commend you for the courage you've shown to seek help. My name is Jackie Armour and I am passionate about helping people recover. My experience has shown me that most people struggling with addiction have a history of emotional loss, neglect, or trauma that often operates on a subconscious level. It is our natural impulse to try to ease that pain through addictive substances or behaviors. As a therapist I can help you discover peace within yourself so that you no longer desire to act on your addiction. I want to see you become the best version of yourself and live up to your true potential.

Providing a felt sense of ease and presence, attuned listening and a container for deep work are my offerings to you. The symptoms we experience (like anxiety and depression) are often due to unresolved traumatic stress in the body. By slowly and gently tracking sensation, movement impulses and images we learn to listen to what our body is telling us, and we return to who we truly are. We begin by exploring what is and is not working in your daily life and relationships, and what you are noticing in your body, thoughts, and feelings.

As a counsellor, I look to come alongside individuals while they navigate difficult situations, process intense emotions, or assist them in making a change in their life. In my work as a counsellor, I believe in helping individuals discover their own strengths in even their weakest moments. I will provide unconditional positive regard, support and empathy to individuals who may be struggling with life stressors, anxiety, depression, amongst many other concerns. I view all individuals as capable of overcoming obstacles and seek to support them in discovering their inner resources and resiliency.

Ever think to yourself "how did I get here?" You feel dread before the day has even begun. On the outside you look like you have it together but on the inside you're a total mess. Stressed out, riddled with anxiety, full of anger or right out depressed. Your emotional walls are so high even you can't see over them anymore. Your mind and body feel completely disconnected. No matter what you do or how you do it, it's never feels good enough. All you want is to get it together and find some inner peace.
