About

My name is Danica Freimond (pictured on the right with my husband, Sean). I am a registered social worker with a passion to leave people better than I found them. I work from the person-centred approach and place a high value on your innate ability to change and grow. Just because we cannot see a mental health problem, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Mental health should carry the exact same weight as a broken leg; you wouldn't walk around on a broken leg, don't walk around with untreated mental health problems; reach out for help! "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change" C. R. Rogers
Through the person-centred approach, I facilitate a process where you feel heard, understood and accepted. This process enables you to reconnect with yourself and find a unique to move forward. Overall, I have a keen interest in individual counselling, mental health, life skills, relationship counselling, trauma resolution, and post-traumatic growth.
I feel that this quote from Carl Rogers sums up what I would like to achieve during the counselling process: “When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, 'Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it’s like to be me'”.
