"My name is Courtney Valeyev. My practice is called Waapoone Counselling Services. Waapoone means "Butterfly" in Anishnaabemowin. The caterpillar has the ability within to transform into a butterfly. I believe people have the same potential for transformation; to grow, to change, and move forward in their life. Counselling is a safe and supportive space to self-reflect, feel understood, heal, work on coping strategies and find your inner strength. Each person comes with their own life experiences, strengths and needs. I tailor my therapeutic approach to you, using several modalities. My approach is trauma informed."

"Are you coping silently and alone? I want to let you know that you do not have to. With compassion and support, we can work together to acknowledge, understand and explore your difficulties, and work towards positively transforming your life. I enjoy helping individuals develop self-compassion. I understand that a person’s ‘inner critic’ (inner critical voice) plays a huge role in their life. Our work together can help ease negative self-judgment. My ultimate goal is to have clients speak to themselves as they would speak to someone they admired. Life can be pretty nasty; your inner voice does not have to be."

"I support people from developing concrete goals, to finding effective strategies to achieve those goals. My general belief is that therapy is most effective when learning gained during therapy sessions is incorporated into day-to-day life between therapy sessions. People feel the positive effect of therapy sooner, and learn skills that are meaningful to them - that they can use long after therapy is complete."

"The healing process is unique to each person. While many go through similar events, not everyone experiences them in the same way. I view my clients through a holistic lens to develop a collaborative, therapeutic relationship. I help my clients develop healthy ways to manage distress, find ways to move out of being stuck, develop new insight for unresolved issues, and increase overall wellbeing. My primary focus is working with clients who have experienced trauma. Because the nature of trauma is complex, I use an integrative, person-centered approach to meet my clients' needs at their pace and readiness."
