Atlantic Counselling Services offers guidance to those whose emotional, social and/or physical functioning has been negatively affected through addictions, mental health issues, trauma or relationship difficulties. This professional practice offers a quiet, inviting atmosphere where clients can feel free to discuss their issues in a respectful, sensitive and confidential environment. Therapeutic intervention is provided on an individual, couple and family basis.
A client may avail of services by contacting the office directly or through a third party (e.g., Employee Assistance Coordinator). Therapy will commence with an initial assessment which will assist the Therapist in developing a treatment plan that considers the unique needs of each client. There is a strong focus on establishing a trusting relationship as well as assisting a client in identifying his/her strengths and inner resources to assist them in reaching their therapy goals. Subsequent sessions will then be arranged on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
All therapists are qualified, skilled and experienced in providing assessment and intervention with clients. They hold both a Master of Social Work (MSW) and a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) and/or MEd (Counselling Psychology) CCC as part of their credentials. They are registered and in good standing with the Newfoundland & Labrador Association of Social Workers (NLASW), the Canadian Association of Social Workers (CASW) and/or Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC). They continually seek opportunities for continuing education and training in order to strive for excellence in the field of Clinical Practice.
Therapists at Atlantic Counselling feel privileged to assist and support clients as they develop strategies to reduce stress, face adversities, and overcome challenges. This in turn can help restore balance and bring renewed hope and healing to their lives.
