Vancouver Counselling Client Reviews

FAQ

Yes, it is. For many people, the therapy our registered clinical counsellors provide enables them to discover the root causes of their issues and take proactive steps to overcome them. 

 

It’s not always easy without help. The range of therapeutic interventions available can help you gain clarity and discover negative thinking patterns. The right approach can also help you on your journey, learn coping mechanisms, and adopt positive behaviours. 

Therapy is the best way to go on a journey of discovery, taking advantage of ongoing support. 

When choosing the right therapist for your needs, consider the issues you’re dealing with and which type of support you’d like. Some people prefer person-centred therapy, while others might want solutions-focused support. 

 

Our website lists available Vancouver therapists, including the clients they treat, their specialized training, and the different techniques they offer. Please contact us today if you’d like us to match you with a therapist. 

All Well Beings Counselling therapists have industry-recognized qualifications, including RCC (Registered Clinical Counsellor) and CCC (Canadian Certified Counsellor). Many also hold Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in psychology or counselling. Some are also members of various associations, including the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).

 

Some of our therapists take specialist courses in the Gottman Method and other therapeutic approaches, so you can be sure of a reputable service with counsellors who treat each patient under set guidelines. 

Therapy can be beneficial for many reasons - and it’s not just for individuals dealing with psychological distress. If any of the following apply to you, seeking counselling can be a proactive step: 

 

  • Mental health issues: Stress, anxiety, and depression are three of the most common mental health concerns. While medication can reduce some of the symptoms, therapy ensures you can deal with the underlying causes. 

  • Emotional challenges: Whether you’re finding it hard to cope with daily life, struggling to manage your emotions, or developing healthy relationships, speaking to a professional can teach you coping mechanisms. 

  • Negative thinking: Glass half-empty people often focus on the negatives of any situation and struggle to identify the positives, holding them back from living a more meaningful life. Professional therapists can help you change how you approach life. 

  • Relationship problems: Problems maintaining relationships can occur due to a range of factors, including attachment issues, previous infidelity and both parties failing to communicate. Investing in couples therapy can help you both explore better ways of communication. 

  • Substance abuse: Dependence on substances can cause huge issues with your relationships and professional life, but therapy enables you to explore the reasons behind your addiction. 

  • Family conflict: Conflicts within families can be devastating, but family therapy is a safe space to explore negative emotions and address issues, resulting in stronger relationships. 

We have a talented team of therapists in Vancouver, which allows us to offer a range of solutions for clients. Once you have an initial consultation with a specialist, we’ll be able to advise on a range of therapies, including: 

 

  • CBT: Also known as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, this popular form of counselling helps you develop positive thinking patterns and eliminate destructive behaviours. Some people benefit from long-term CBT, while others make changes in a few sessions. 

  • ACT: Acceptance and Commitment counselling is an empowering therapy that lets you accept behaviours and thinking patterns while committing to positive changes. 

  • EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing helps you process traumas through eye movements, making it popular for people who want to explore their adverse experiences. 

  • Psychodynamic Therapy: Many negative thinking patterns and behaviours occur due to unresolved childhood trauma. This approach aims to uncover previous trauma and resolve it with specialist support. 

  • Person-Centred Therapy: Many therapists use this approach to focus on the client’s needs and goals. You control the sessions, and your therapist acts as a facilitator. 

With so many types of therapy to choose between, knowing which is suitable for your needs can be challenging. Once you have an initial assessment, the therapist will identify which therapeutic approaches suit your needs. 

 

For example, CBT can be beneficial for individuals who want to change their thinking patterns, while DBT is a specialist therapy for people with personality disorders. 

 

Psychodynamic approaches or EMDR are best for trauma, while person-centred therapy can help you navigate the sessions more effectively. Whatever your needs are, our therapists can cater to them and facilitate your healing journey. 

Private psychotherapy isn't free, but you might be able to receive free support in some cases. These include: 

 

  • Health Plans: If your employer offers health benefits or you have an insurance policy, you can receive free mental health support. Depending on your coverage, you could get subsidized rates. Please see our fees page for more information. 

  • MSP: British Columbia's Medical Services Plan might offer subsidized treatments, but this is usually only when a psychiatrist or doctor refers you for therapy. 

 

While there aren't many ways to access free support, we offer low-cost counselling services to reduced-income clients. 

No, you don’t. You can access private therapy at any time, making it easy to seek support for emotional distress and mental health issues. However, if you want to see a psychiatrist, you’ll usually need a referral from your doctor. 

 

Private psychiatrists are available but are usually not covered under your health plan.

It depends on whether a doctor refers you or you’re accessing support through your insurance. Some people wait for months to access counselling, but opting for private therapy means you can see a specialist immediately and work through mental health issues. 

Some people worry about having online therapy, but it’s becoming one of the most popular ways to access support. Having therapy in a physical setting often means travelling, but some people find it easier to open up in the comfort of their own homes. 

Our counselling services are available online and in person, giving you more flexibility. If you opt for online sessions, you can use our secure platform, which guarantees your privacy through video messaging. 

Therapy is an investment in your mental health; engaging in treatment paves the way for a brighter future. At Well Beings Counselling, we aim to make therapy accessible for everyone and offer low-cost counselling services for those on limited incomes. 

 

Our rates reflect the experience of our therapists, and we partner with insurance providers to help make accessing support more affordable. 

 

View our therapy fees.

There is no set time frame for therapy, as it depends on the degree of support you require and whether you can resolve your issues. 

 

CBT and solution-focused therapy can occur over six sessions or more, while trauma support and psychotherapy are longer-term interventions. 

 

Your therapist will check in regularly, discussing how the therapy’s going and whether you’re ready to reduce the sessions. 

 

Ultimately, we want you to leave therapy feeling confident and ready to take on the world—whether it takes weeks, months, or years. Our team will support you on an ongoing basis. 

If you’re ready to explore your emotions and access expert support, we’d love to help you. Please get started today and discover our counselling or therapy options. 

 

You can choose your counsellor or have our experts match you with one that meets your requirements.
