Creative Counselling

mental health recovery is possible

At Creative Counselling, I provide holistic, effective and affordable services with the highest level of professionalism.

As a Registered Social Worker with the BC College of Social Workers, I am accountable to you on the basis of the Code of Ethics of my social work profession and the Standards set by the College.

I have over 40 years of experience assisting adults, children, youth and families with a variety of life challenges, including relationship, parenting, life transitions, suicide, loss, grief, addictions and serious mental health issues.

Recovery from mental health challenges is possible and I focus on you as a whole person, offering you hope, knowledge, support, advocacy and practical skills for you to make your own recovery, healing and wellness possible.

I can assist you as a caregiver or your loved-one to maneuver through the mental health system and gain access to appropriate services. In addition or as an alternative, we can draw from my large tool box of wellness approaches.

These wellness tools can be acquired by you during our sessions and include Compassionate Communication (NVC),
the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), mindfulness and meditation, Tapping (EFT), and expressive arts.

Expressive arts involve spontaneous visioning, art journalling, collaging, writing, drawing and painting to free deeper emotions and gain more self-awareness. This creative process can move you safely forward towards balance, healing and recovery.
