Leap of Faith Counselling
Taking the next step with you
Welcome to Leap of Faith Counselling Services. I am so glad that you are here. I offer affordable, professional, high quality counselling to individuals, couples, and families. I offer in-person and online counselling services. As a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist with almost 30 years experience working with people from all walks of life, I have much experience to draw upon. What I know is that no matter where you are in your life, and no matter where you have been, real change is possible.
Just by starting your search for a counsellor, you are taking a big “leap of faith”. Faith that you can make small changes in the right direction. Faith that your life can open up in new ways.
When you are in the dark, it can be hard to even imagine the light. It can be hard to believe that joy is possible.
I am here to tell you that things can change – but it takes courage, faith and hope – and the next small step. Please contact me if you want to learn more about how I can help shine a light on the path. I would love to take the next step with you.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge”
Have you hit a bump in the road? Do you want things to change? Perhaps you are going through a life transition. Perhaps you are struggling with depression or anxiety. Maybe you are grieving a loss, or living with a health challenge. Whatever it is, I can help. Please contact me today to get started on a path to wholeness and health.
Couple and Family
Often the relationships that are closest to us are the most difficult. Although, these relationships have the potential to help and to heal, they also have the potential to challenge us – particularly if we get stuck in old ways of relating that no longer work. Sometimes it can be difficult to see our part in the dance. Sometimes it takes a “leap of faith” to try something new, and find the love and connection that we all need from the people right there in front of us.
Do you want to receive professional, high quality counselling in the comfort of your own home? Using video, I can connect with you at a time that works best for you. You don’t have to wait for your schedule to open up to reach out for the help you need. Contact me today to get started.
Heather guided our sessions with patience and understanding, and we felt supported. We never felt forced or manipulated, but at the same time she asked that we be honest, creating a safe environment where we laid it all out on the table. I have never experienced honesty like that in my entire life, and it was profound. She always asked questions, allowing us to come to our own conclusions. At the same time, she found a way to keep the sessions on track, bringing us back if we were spiraling or stuck. She taught us how to listen, not only to each other, but to the physical sensations accompanying different emotions, and we still use those techniques today. At the end of each session, we felt like Heather had given us something to focus on or hang on to until the next session, some sort of common goal.
We absolutely love our sessions with her. We both feel we have an opportunity to speak and be heard and she does a great job of ensuring we are truly understanding what the other is communicating. Every time we go for a session, my husband and I come out feeling like a weight has been lifted, more open, and more connected with each other. We both appreciate her so much that we have been seeing her individually as well on occasion. Heather was recommended to me and I would, and have, happily recommended her to any of my family or friends who are looking for counselling services, whether that be personal or marital.
I worked with Heather for many years. In both her personal and professional lives, and as a colleague, she is gentle, compassionate, ethical and conscientious. Heather is always trying to improve on and develop her skills to serve clients. She reflects on her practice and seeks consultation when she feels it could be helpful. The highest compliment I can give her is that I would never hesitate to recommend and refer others to her.
I have known Heather for 30 years… As a therapist she is highly skilled and has extensive experience working with individuals and groups both face-to-face and online. She is also herself: compassionate and caring, gentle and empathic, solid and engaged. She listens well, is insightful and creative in her approach, and possesses wisdom far beyond her years. I wholeheartedly endorse her as she begins her private practice. She is now doing the work she was born to do and her clients could not be more fortunate to have her.
Group counselling is a great option if you would like to get the support of others who have “been there and done that”. There can be so much comfort in knowing that you are not alone in the struggle. Please check out the current groups that I am offering. This is a great way to start making changes in the right direction!
