How We Work
Counselling is a collaborative relationship between you and your counsellor that takes place in a safe, confidential, and supportive space where you are free to share openly, express your feelings, and be fully supported.
We work to help address your immediate mental health challenges in the short term, while helping you build healthy coping skills, self-awareness, and resilience for the long term.
Our counsellors follow a collaborative model that is client-centered and respectful. Your counsellor stands as a grounded witness to your individual, process, offering potential strategies and opportunities for reflection.
All FSGV counsellors have graduate degrees (Masters and above) in clinical social work and counselling psychology. We strive for professional excellence and stay on top of best practices and the latest developments in the field of individual and family therapy. Regular supervision is part of our practice. Your confidentiality will be strictly maintained.
