"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."

People may go to counselling when their own strategies are no longer working for them. I believe it's important to understand the root causes of certain thoughts and behaviours to develop the appropriate support. Such behaviours may include self-harm and aggression, which may mask underlying issues that I am hoping to uncover and help clients cope with."

"Substance use, trauma and other mental health issues can put a serious dent in someone's quality of life. All the way from not being comfortable with how much you are using or how it is affecting you, to wishing you could shut your brain off, to being suicidal or overdosing, or hurting yourself. Perhaps you are a parent, are scared for your teenager and have no idea where to start. Huge numbers of people and families have gone through these things and come out the other side to live good lives, and it doesn't have to be exhausting to do so. Many people need help though and asking for it is not easy sometimes."

"Is your child struggling with reading, writing, math or French? Are you concerned for their wellbeing and happiness at school? You might feel like you've done all you can to help your child and aren't sure where to turn next. Your child's teachers may also have suggested getting an assessment, and they are likely highly concerned for your child. If you have any of these concerns, a psychoeducational assessment is the place to start. An assessment will help you and those who work closely with your child to better understand his or her strengths and weaknesses."

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counselling) Counsellors
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Ottawa can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counsellors in Ottawa help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, Ottawa Counsellors work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in Ottawa all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good Ottawa academic counsellor or school counsellor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Ottawa are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Ottawa you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Ottawa and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Ottawa or family therapy in Ottawa.
