Comox Valley Family Counselling & Mediation

– Solutions For Family Matters –


Counselling provides an opportunity for you to discuss any issues that are negatively impacting your life or getting in the way of you being happy.  It offers and opportunity to gain insight into issues or patterns that may keep coming into your life and to change aspects of your life that are no longer working for you. It may also be helpful to improve communications, enhance relationships and to learn new ways of thinking that improve your own quality of life.

Often in counselling you will learn how to be more in touch with your feelings, how to express them and to better understand patterns that may impact relationships, work life, family life, and your sense of self.

The type of issues discussed is based on what you want to talk about, following your lead whenever possible. Gillian provides support, guidance and a safe structure for you to discover what solutions or ideas will work best for you

Gillian offers a person-centered approach to counseling that is empathic, respectful and puts the interests of the person first. She hopes to empower and motivate people to create the change they want in their own lives.

You are listened to without judgement and offered an opportunity to learn new ways of thinking about your life which may allow you to grow and move forward. It is up to you to determine what it is that you need to discuss.

Gillian also offers a solution focused approach that highlights the importance of searching for solutions rather than problems. She often incorporates aspects of Cognitive Behavourial Therapy, and Mindfulness practices.
